Fried Fish In Soy (Kicap) Sauce

When its a fish dish, it also depends on what's fresh at the hypermarket/market. Utmost important. Otherwise you would have wasted your money and time. I bought cencaru (Torpedo Scad). Not that a good choice for curries. So I made a similar dish like the fried kembung with assam sauce and fried fish with chilli padi sauce.  Again almost the same technique - fry the fish and combine in the spicy soy sauce with capsicum. Capsicum is optional. Perhaps you can use other suitable veggies.

For fish
3 medium size cencaru (gut and cut into 2)
1 tsp turmeric/kunyit powder
1 tsp corn flour
Salt to taste
Oil as needed

Other ingredients
1/2 green capsicum (cut into bite sizes)
1/2 red capsicum (cut into bite sizes)
1 medium size onion (sliced)
5 garlic (diced)
5 birds eye chillies (cut into smaller pieces)
1 handful of spring onion (cut into 3 or 4)
1 tbsp light soy sauce
1/2 tbsp dark soy sauce
1 tbsp lime juice
1 tsp sugar

For fish
Rub corn flour, turmeric and salt over fish.
Deep fry, remove and keep aside.
Leave about 2 tbsp of oil in the same work. Saute onion, garlic, chillies and capsicum. 
Add light soy and dark sauce, lime juice, sugar and salt.
Stir and cook for about 2 minutes.
Add fish inside and spring onion.
Stir and combine in. 
Dish out.
