Red Snapper in Sweet n Sour Sauce

Monday, April 20, 2009

My kids love this dish. when ever i made this they'll have their second and third. you can use the same sauce with other seafood or even chicken. a versatile dish i'd say just like the dish i did before in my previous entry.

anyhow here's the recipe:

blended ingredients:
1 onion
1/2 inch of garlic
1/2 red chili scrape off the seeds
1 garlic
1 red tomato.

other ingredients:
1 or 2 slice of red snapper
1tbsp tomato sauce
a pinch of black pepper
salt to taste
sugar to taste (it should be sweet but u can control to your desired sweetness)
1 lemongrass crushed
1 kaffir lime leaf (daun limau purut)

you basically fry the blended ingredients until fragrant then add in the other ingredients except the fish. season it then set a side.

as for the fish, wash and pat dry, season it with salt and pepper then dip into a flour until all covered. fry the fish until well cooked it should turned out golden brown nice and crispy. my children likes their fish this way but you can omit the flour part and just season the fish and fry its ok too. then youcan serve the fish with the sweet and sour sauce.

for the sauce you can then add in pepper bell and some chopped corriender leaves while cooking the sauce, it'll do wonder for the sauce. i didn't add in those coz i was just making do with what i have at stock.
