Sweet and Sour fish fillets
Most Sweet and Sour dish uses the same sauce. The main ingredient can be fish, meat or even brinjal can be made into a sweet and sour fish. For this fish recipe I will be using canned pineapples juice to add to the gravy and using cubed pineapples together with the other cubed vegetables.
Ingredients: 500gms boneless fish fillets
100gms green capsicums, diced
1 onion, diced
Some cubed pineapples
1 tomato, diced
100 gms deseeded cucumber, diced
Gravy: 5 tbsps tomato sauce
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp light soya sauce
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp sesame oil
1/4 tsp salt
100 ml canned pineapple juice
50 ml water
Mix the above ingredients together and leave aside.
Method for the fish: Cut fish fillets into strips and marinade with 1/4 tsp salt , 1/4 tsp pepper and 1/2 an egg white . Set aside for 1/2 an hour.
Coat fish with tapioca flour and deep fried till golden brown.
Heat 1/2 tsp oil in a pan and fry the onion , then add in all the vegetables ingredients to fry.
Fry for a min and add in gravy
Stir to combine and let the mixture comes to a boil. Add in fried fish.
If you like a drier dish, mix in a cornstarch solution and mix till dish is dry.
Dish up onto a plate and garnish with spring onions and cut chillies.
