Fried Pompret (Bawal) With Ginger And Soy Sauce

My plans to travel this day didn't really take off. Mainly because friends who agreed to travel together couldn't decide, I certainly was disappointed. I actually could have travelled alone, but I was warned about those countries which are said not safe for single woman travellers.  Anyway that was that, and the good news is I am on the verge of packing to travel with my other half. Rare of course, but hei, I am all excited. While my other half takes the most 2 hours to pack, I need at least 2 days and packing for winter is no joke. I am still at the check list as not to forget what to pack, cooking is the simplest and this is it  - crispy fried black pompret in soy sauce and garnished with crispy fried ginger and spring onion. Got to go peeps, take care. 

For the fish
1 black prompret/bawal hitam - clean, de-gut and pat dry.
1 tsp corn flour
1/2 tsp rice flour
Oil for frying
Salt and pepper for taste
Spring onion for garnishing

For the sauce
1 inch ginger - remove skin and slice into thin long stripes
1 tbsp dark soya sauce
1 tbsp sweet soy sauce
Drops of sesame oil
Salt (if needed)

Dust fish with corn flour and rice flour, and season with salt and pepper.
Heat enough oil and deep fry fish.
Remove and place on a serving plate.
Drain off excess oil from the wok and leave about 2 tbsp.
Fry ginger till crispy.
Remove and keep aside.
Pour dark sauce and sweet soy sauce in the same oil.
Stir and pour a few tbsps of water.
Simmer and pour over fried fish.
Top with fried ginger, drizzle sesame oil and garnish with spring onion.
