Lettuce & Fillet of Fish Soup
(by Moto's friend, Betty)
(Microwave - Makes 2 to 3 Servings)

1 lb fillet of flounder, cut into about 2 inch sections                                   2½ cups water
1 tsp cornstarch mixed with 1 Tbsp water                                                   1 Tbsp oil
4 to 6 tender lettuce leaves, torn into small pieces                                    1 scallion, chopped
1 slice ginger cut in strips                                                                             1 tsp sherry
1 Tbsp soy sauce                                                                                         dash salt & white pepper to taste


Mix the sherry with the cornstarch and then add fish.  Coat well.  Tear the lettuce leaves into small pieces by hand.  Put the lettuce leaves along with 1 Tbsp oil into a microwave safe pitcher/container and mix well.  Cover and microwave for 2 to 3 minutes on high.  Add the 2½ cups water, ginger, soy sauce, salt and white pepper to the lettuce.  Cover and microwave for 6 to 8 minutes or until boiling.
Be careful of hot steam when removing cover.  Add the fish and the scallions to the soup.  Cover and microwave for another 4 to 5 minutes or until boiling to cook fish through.  Stir and let stand for 2 minutes before serving.
