Satay Fried Sea Bass and Asparagus

Satay BBQ sauce is delicious! This sauce is usually used as a dip when having a Chinese hot pot dinner but it is absolutely fantastic when stir fried with vegetables or meat. I use it as my secret weapon ingredient for that extra zing when I want a dish that's easy to make but tastes like I laboured for hours over. The asparagus provided an almost neutral, light balance to the slight spiciness and saltiness of the bbq sauce. The bbq taste fully penetrated the fish chunks and were perfectly cooked - creamy and smooth.

The magic ingredient
