I am not sure what fish this is - it looks like a Red Snapper but it has shiny & larger scales. My children love this fish uncut & deep-fried.
Here how I cook my Sweet Sour Fish:
1 large Fish
½ tsp Turmeric powder
½ tsp Fennel seed*
3 cloves Garlic*
1 inch Ginger* (*pounded)
1 tbsp Chilli paste
3 tbsp Tomato sauce
3 tbsp Chilli sauce
½ cup Water
1tsp Cornstarch + sufficient water to form paste
1 Big Onion - sliced into thick rings
1 Tomato - cut 6
½ cup Frozen Mixed Vegetabled
2 Green Chillie - cut each lengthwise into 2 parts
Spring Onion & Chinese Celery - chopped
1/2 tbsp Sugar
Salt & MSG (optional)
1. Rub fish with salt & turmeric powder and deep fried until cooked.
2. Heat up 2 tbsp oil & fry pounded ingredients and chilli paste until fragrant.
Add in sauce & water and let it boil.
Add in the rest of ingredients & boil for short while.
Pour onto the fried fish.
3. Serve with white rice.
