Stuffed Chilli 【酿辣椒】

I planted a Hot Banana chilli plant last summer and was endowed with a good harvest. I showed the pictures to my mother over Facetime and she said the chilies are just perfect for Chinese Stuffed Chili!

And I thought, why not?

后院的Hot Banana收成好多,妈妈看了照片说这辣椒做酿辣椒最好啦!

150 g Tilapia or Cat fish Fillet (Or any white fish fillet)
80 g minced turkey (Or pork)
15 Hot Banana Chillies
1 bunch of spring onion (Chopped)
Some Cilantro for garnishing
1 red chilli (Optional)

1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp sugar
1 tbsp cornstarch
1 tsp Light soy sauce
1 tsp Fish Sauce/Nam Pla
1 tsp Cooking oil
1/2 tsp Sesame oil
A pinch of pepper powder

For gravy:
1 tbsp Oyster Sauce
1 tsp Soy sauce
1 tsp Chinese Cooking wine
1/4 Cup of water
Few drops of sesame oil
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp of corn starch

150 克 鱼片 我用了Tilapia 和 Cat fish片
80 克 火鸡/猪肉末
15 根 Hot Banana 辣椒
一把芫荽  切碎
一把青葱  切碎
一根红辣椒 (Optional)

1/4 小勺 盐
1/4 小勺 糖
1 大勺 木薯粉/芡粉
1 小勺 酱油(生抽)
1 小勺 鱼露
1 小勺素油
1/2 小勺 香油

1 大勺 蚝油
1 小勺 酱油
1 小勺 料酒
1/4 杯水
1/4 tsp 糖

1. Minced fish fillet using a food processor, you can also use a butcher knife to mince it on chopping board.

2. Place minced fish and ground turkey in a mixing bowl. Run stand mixer at stir for about 5 minutes, add corn starch and all the seasonings listed in between,add chopped cilantro and spring onion towards the end, mix well and set aside for 10 minutes.

Note: Keep aside a tbsp of cilantro or chopped spring onion for garnishing.



3. Make a slit in each chillies and remove seeds. DO NOT over cut the chillies, it should be only one slit opening as shown in the picture.

4. Stuff the fish/turkey paste into the opening until filled. Rub some water over the surface to smoothen the paste.

5. Pan fry the chillies on medium heat until it's cooked. Add all sauce ingredients (but cornstarch) in a saucepan, bring to boil.

6. Use a little water to mix with cornstarch, stir in the cornstarch to thicken the sauce. Pour the sauce over the stuffed chillies, sprinkle some chopped cilantro or spring onion for garnishing.

3. 在辣椒上垂直划上一刀,清除里边的种子,记得不要把辣椒撑开断裂。

4. 用个小勺子把肉泥酿入辣椒里,用手指沾点水抹抹开口处的肉泥,这样会比较平滑,也不容易掉出来。

5. 酿好的辣椒,入平底锅加点油中火两面煎熟,摆盘。

6. 把酱汁里所有材料摆到一口小锅里煮滚后打芡。把煮好的酱汁淋到酿辣椒上,撒葱花,就可以开吃了!
