Fish Don

A twist on the traditional katsudon dish by a chef on a Taiwanese cooking show.  Quick, easy, healthy, nutritious and tastes good too! Let's call it "fish don".

1 large piece swai fillet - cut into bite-sized pieces
2 slices ginger
1 large brown onion - peeled, halved and sliced
2 eggs (break into a bowl and stirred lightly)
5 - 7 tbsp water 
toasted black sesame seeds
1 tbsp oil 
cooked rice 

1 tbsp mirin
4 tbsp soy sauce

Marinade for fish
1 tsp rice wine
1 tbsp soy sauce
a little salt
dash of pepper
1 tsp cornstarch

  1. Heat up oil in a pan over medium low heat. Fry the sliced onion and ginger for a few minutes.
  2. Spread out the onion and place the fish pieces in a single layer on top of the onion.
  3. Switch to medium heat.  Drizzle sauce over the fish.  Let it sizzle for 30 seconds.  Add water to the mixture.  Cover and let it come to a boil.
  4. When the fish is almost cooked, pour half of the egg mixture over the fish slices.
  5. Cover and cook for 30 seconds or more till egg mixture is set.
  6. Remove cover and add the rest of the egg mixture.
  7. Cover for another 30 seconds to 1 minute.
  8. Spoon rice into 2 bowls and pour the mixture equally over the rice.
  9. Top with some toasted sesame seeds or toasted seaweed before serving.
