Turmeric Fried Fish With Oyster Sweet Sauce

MyMahsuri Masak & Menang (cook and win) contest is on-going and tomorrow is the last day. My previous "Fried Brinjal With Spicy Sweet Sambal" sad to say, didn't impress the judges and there goes the little thrill of winning RM500.00. But you what and guess what? Seriously, I'm wondering how the winners were selected because I like to believe that simple dishes are the best. But no, seemed like a mambo-jumbo of ingredients is the critical success factor. Well, you can't blame me for believing that cooking these days is not about impressing our love ones but keeping it simple with a few ingredients for a decent meal. Guess I was wrong. Suppose perception and reality are two different things. 

Not that I'm envious or desperate for the money, if I've won, I could have changed my hair colour or bought some colourful shoes. Never mind, life strongly still goes on and more to winning the contest, I'm back with a recipe for recipes are my blog's backbone. 606 recipes so far and here's another significantly easy dish to add to the feather - fish fried after mixing with rice flour, corn flour, turmeric and salt and teamed with a no cook sauce. 

For the fish
2 pieces ikan senangin or any other firm fish - de-gut, clean and cut into two
1 tsp cornflour
1 tsp rice flour
1 tsp turmeric powder

1 tsbp Mahsuri oyster sauce
2 red chillies - chopped/sliced thinly
3 shallots - chopped/sliced thinly
3 kaffir lime leaves - shredded
1/2 lime - extract juice
2 tbsp water

(Kaffir lime leaves from my garden)
