Deep Fried Fish With Chili Padi Sauce

The first fish recipe was "Fried Kembung With Assam Sauce". Really easy right??? Now another fish dish too. This one requires a little more work. Preferably with one medium size fish. I used siakap. You see what you can buy. Siakap is not expensive and taste nice. Deep fried and with a generous soy spicy sauce. I know the picture is somewhat not up to mark. Forgive me. Still learning how to use the camera. But let me assure you. The taste is good as ever.

For the fish
1 medium size siakap
1/2 tsp turmeric/kunyit powder
A pinch of salt
Oil for frying
1 teaspoon of dark sauce
1 tablespoon of light sauce
1 teaspoon of sugar
½ lemon - extract juice
5 chili padi/birds eye chillies (cut into smaller sizes)
5 garlic - chopped
1 inch ginger - chopped
A handful of coriander (cut into smaller sizes)
Lather fish with turmeric and salt.
Heat sufficient oil.
Deep fry fish, remove and keep aside.
Leave about 2 tablespoons of oil in the wok.
Sauté garlic and ginger. 
Add chili padi and the rest of the ingredients. 
 Add ¼ cup of water.
Let it simmer.
Off heat and stir in coriander leaves.
Pour sauce over the fish and serve immediately.

  2. Hi everyone,
    There's a mistake in the ingredient, it should be turmeric powder and not saffron powder. My apologies for that.
