Sweet & Sour Fish
:: Sweet and Sour Fish ::
1 medium sized fresh red snapper (brother cought this! :-)
Clean and marinate the fish with a little salt and turmeric.
Add some plain flour all over the fish.
Heat a large wok with plenty of oil and fry the fish (deep fryers works well too)
For the sauce:
1/2 red onion, chopped
1 green large chili, sliced
1 red tomato, chopped
About 5 tablespoon tomato sauce
About 1 tablespoon white vinegar
Salt & sugar to taste
Very simple. I (umm, my mum and me, I mean) used what we had at home. If you have some pineapple, it would be great. Tomatoes are good enough, if not.
Heat up the wok, with a little oil and stir in onions. Followed by the rest and mix well. Add a little water along the way so it does not dry. Add salt and sugar. Taste if it has that sweet and sour combination and adjust by adding more tomato sauce or vinegar.
Now you have the fish and sauce ready!
Place the fish on a large plate and pour the sauce all over the fish. Garnish with freshly chopped coriander (not in the picture) or fresh chilis.
Enjoy with steamed rice. :-)
