Instructions
  1. Clean your fish, removing the scales, gills, and trimming any fins. Choose a fish of a suitable size for your Instant Air Fryer.
  2. Cut the very dark green tops from your spring onions and set these aside, before thinly slicing the remaining spring onion.
  3. Pat your fish dry with paper towels, both inside and out.
  4. Stuff the fish with half of the ginger matchsticks, and the dark green tops of the spring onions, then fill the remaining space with about ½ of the coriander.
  5. Brush the outside of the fish with a little vegetable oil then place inside the Air Fryer, on top of a small piece of baking paper.
  6. Select Air Fry, and set the temperature to 195°C and set the time to 12 Minutes.
  7. While the fish cooks make the sauce: Place your remaining ginger in a heat proof bowl, along with a few of the spring onions, reserving some for garnish.
  8. Heat the vegetable oil in a saucepan until nearly smoking, then pour this over the spring onions and ginger, which will sizzle and bubble.
  9. Stir in the soy, sugar and rice wine vinegar.
  10. Once the fish has cooked, and the flesh just flakes from the bones, remove from the air fryer and transfer to a serving plate.
  11. Spoon over the soy dressing, then top the fish with your remaining fresh coriander, spring onions and thinly sliced chilli.
  12. Serve alongside your favourite sides to make this dish a hearty complete meal.
