Description

This porridge-like dish of rice is popular in many Asian countries for breakfast and for dinner. Congee can be served plain as a side dish, or, as we’ve done here, served with meat to make a more substantial meal.

Directions

  • Soak peanuts in cold water overnight.
  • The next day, drain peanuts, then soak dried fish in cold water for 30 minutes. Drain.
  • Combine fish, peanuts, rice, stock, ginger and pork in a large saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium-low heat. Reduce heat to low and cook for 1 hour, then remove fish and set aside to cool. Cook congee for a further 30 minutes or until pork is very tender. Remove pork and set aside to cool. Cook congee, stirring occasionally, for a further 1 hour or until rice is soft and falling apart and the mixture has thickened.
  • Meanwhile, remove fat and gristle from pork and thinly slice. Remove skin and bones from fish and flake flesh into small pieces.
  • Heat oil in a saucepan over medium heat until hot. Working in batches, deep-fry wonton strips for 20 seconds or until golden and crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towel.
  • When congee is ready, stir in pork and fish. Add a little extra stock or water to thin congee if necessary. Divide among large bowls, scatter over fried wonton skins, coriander, spring onion and serve drizzled with chilli oil.
  • Note
  • • Dried salted fish and chilli oil are available from Asian food shops.
