Steamed Fish With Pickled Chillies & Black Bean Paste On Rice Noodles

Pickled Chillies 


  • 1 kg green and red chillies
  • 20g salt

Pickling brine:

  • 700ml white vinegar
  • 320g sugar


1. Heat the vinegar and sugar in a pot. Stir until the sugar dissolves. Transfer into a large tray to let cool.
2. Rinse red and green chillies. Drain. Cut into rings and add salt. Mix well. Leave them for 2 hours until liquid is drawn out of the chillies. Squeeze them dry.
3. Put the squeezed red and green chillies into the cooled pickling brine from step 1. Stir well and leave them for 24 hours. Stir them once or twice throughout the pickling time to ensure they pick up the brine evenly. Serve.
