CoCo Mama's Braised Fish
This is another dish that I grew up eating. I love eating the plain fried pomfret with cut chilli padi and soya sauce, but once in a while, this is a nice dish to go with rice too!
Very simple to do. You just need:
- fish (I like pomfret)
- 1 medium onion, sliced
- 1 garlic, chopped
- Chilli padi, cut (optional)
- dark soya sauce
- Sugar, 2 table spoons
- Fish Soya Sauce, 1 table spoon
This is not a product placement, but this is really a great sauce, highly recommended for fish lovers! This fragrant soya sauce is perfect for steamed fish or just a good soya sauce to add to freshly cut chilli padi to dip food in.
Anyway, just make cuts on the fish, maybe 2 cuts, pad the fish dry, and shallow fry the fish.
Remove the fish from the frying pan and pour away the access oil. Fry up the onions, garlic (and chilli). Lower the fire and add in the fish sauce and sugar (if still salty, add a little more sugar. The fish sauce can be quite salty) . Add a little water. add a little dark sauce for colour and flavour. Pour sauce over the fish and serve. :)
