      Yikes! Too many onions! Overwhelmed the dish! My fish also became a mushy mess. Any ideas about how to get firmer, chunkier pieces?

      Very tasty recipe that goes really well with steamed white rice. I used cod from Alaska and kept the pieces bigger than bite size pieces because I did not want the pieces to disintegrate while stir frying. After the onions are nicely browned, the actual cooking of fish was quite fast. Thank you for sharing this recipe. Made for Asian forums India tag game Mar 2010.
