Fried Black Pomfret (Bawal Hitam) In Soy Sauce

No speak evil on my out of composure pictures please. I know I messed up massively with angling the camera to angle on this dish. Nevertheless, you shouldn't also be always impressed with pictures. You can if you want to, a word of advice from nava-k to you. Impressiveness may not necessarily imply that the recipe won't be a flop. I refrain from speaking on your behalf, I have had my share of flop of replicating dishes because pictures were super perfect. However, I can't say the same on the recipe sharing. Just my honest opinion though. Let us now look at this recipe for this day. Black pompret/bawal hitam is my other half-half''s favorite, so, I make him happy. Happiness in marriage of course is about love cooking, so, I cooked this fried black pompret in soy sauce (Fried Fish in Soy Sauce & Spicy Grilled Black Pompret).

For Fish
1 whole black pomfret (abt 400g) de-gut, leave the head on and make two or three incisions  on both sides (no need to pat dry)
1 tsp turmeric/kunyit powder
1 tsp rice flour
1 tsp corn flour
Salt as taste
**Mix/lather fish with all these ingredients

For The Sauce
2 red chillies &1 green chilli - sliced into long thin stripes
1 inch ginger - sliced into thin stripes
5 pips garlic - sliced thinly
1 medium size (abt 100g) red onion - sliced thinly
1 bunch coriander leaves - sliced.
1 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tbsp dark soy sauce
1/2 tsp sesame oil
1/2 tbsp vinegar
1 tsp brown sugar
Oil as needed
Salt (if needed)

Heat enough oil and when heated, deep fry fish, remove and place on a tray/plate.
Leave about 2 tbsp of oil in the same wok/pan.
Saute chillies, ginger, onion and garlic.
Add the rest of the ingredients.
(Note: pour some water for more sauce).
Quickly stir and atop over the fried fish.
Don't forget to trend alongside "cook with nava-k" on every other social media please!!
