Jack Lee's Healthy Kitchen

Healthy doesn’t mean bland. Watch super Celebrity Chef Jack Lee cook up a magical red tilapia with fresh tomatoes, bell peppers and a sharp blend of galangal, ginger, and lifting lemongrass. Weaving through Vietnam’s Dakao Market in Ho Chi Minh city, he then turns up the heat with a sizzling beef and broccoli stir-fry with simple soy sauce, teriyaki sauce, ginger and honey. And chicken’s always on the menu, this time it’s full-on flavour with a heapful of veggies, from colourful peppery capsicums, to clean and crunchy zucchinis, and all tossed up in serious mix of sharp vinegar, sweet honey, creamy peanut butter and fragrant sesame oil.


Jack Lee's Healthy Kitchen: Pan-Fried Red Tilapia with Tomato and Gac Fruit Sauce

A red tilapia fish absorbs all flavors easily, such as a zesty grassy lemongrass and the classically southeast Asian blend of garlic, galangal and ginger. The trick is not to use all on the fish, or in the sauce. Spilt the mixture and marinate the fish in one part of magical blend, and use the other to make an oozy sauce. For balance, Chef Jack Lee tips Gac Fruit and sweet, fragrant rice wine into the mix and them in hot oil with a juicy fish. Super healthy, and so good with white rice.
