To be honest with you, I rarely cook fish at home. I usually will avoid cooking big fish because I do not know how to clean it. The most that I do is buy fish fillet or small fish. Last week when I went to a wet market next to my apartment to get prawns, the seller asked if I would get the fish as well and offered to clean it for me. That was the reason we had this fish for dinner that night. 🙂
1. Clean fish and make slices on its sides.
2. Cut carrots match stick long.
3. For sweet and sour sauce: 2 table-spoon of ketchup, 2 tea-spoon corn starch, water, vinegar, sugar and salt to taste.
4. Heat wok with lots of oil enough to deep fry the fish.
If you like before the frying, you may rub the fish with a bit of salt and corn starch on its sides to give a bit of flavor and to preserve the whole fish. In the pre-heated oil wok (remember this should be really hot oil) quickly fry the fish brown and put it aside. Stir cook the mixture no.3 and add carrot. Until carrots cooked and to your preferable taste, the sauce is done. At last pour it on top of the fish and it is ready to be served.
