Fish in Hot Sauce Recipe

Ingredients :

750 g freshwater fish

3 tablespoons chili paste

1 tablespoon tomato puree

1 tablespoon soy sauce

2 tablespoons rice wine

1/2 tablespoon sugar

1 cup stock

3 slices ginger root, peeled and chopped finely

2 clove garlic, chopped finely

1 tablespoon vinegar

3 scallions, chopped finely

1 tablespoon cornstarch

Oil for deep-frying


Method :

Clean, scale and gut the fish well. Make slashes on each side of the fish diagonally until the bone. Heat a wok with oil and deep-fry the fish until golden. Turn only once or twice. Remove and drain. Pour off the excess oil leaving about 1 tablespoon in the wok. Put in the chili puree, tomato puree, soy sauce, rice wine, sugar, stock, finely chopped ginger root and garlic. Bring it to the boil. Put the fish back, reduce heat and cook gently for a few minutes turning it over two or three times. Place the fish on a serving dish. Increase the heat. Add vinegar and onions to the sauce, thicken it with cornstarch. Then pour it over the fish and serve while still hot with steam white rice.
