Flip the fish in the pan.

Add the 2nd fish to the pan. Boil for 4~5 minutes while flipping them every minute (until it exhibits a yellowish color).

My kids love this! It's a bit difficult to cook compared to other doofood dishes, but it's well worth it.

Wish that the fish is less salty—other than that, a good recipe.
