Fried Fish with Tamarind Recipe

Fried Fish with Tamarind Recipe

Ingredients :

1 kg whole fish
4 cloves garlic, crushed
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon palm sugar or substitute
4 tablespoons tamarind liquid
2 tablespoons fish sauce

1 tablespoon finely shredded fresh ginger
3 scallions, cut into bite-size pieces

3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves
4 fresh red chilies, sliced

Lard for frying


Method :

Wash, clean and scale the fish. Discard the fish head, fins and tail. Clear the cavity and wipe with kitchen paper dipped in coarse salt. Wash and pat dry with paper towels. Fry the fish in hot lard until brown on both sides, but do not over-cook. Drain on absorbent paper, cover fish with foil and keep warm. Pour off all but a tablespoon of the lard and on low heat fry the garlic until starting to brown. Immediately add the soy sauce, sugar, fish sauce and tamarind liquid and bring to the boil. Add ginger and scallions and cook for 1 minute. Spoon the sauce over the fish and serve garnished with cilantro leaves and chilies, as an accompaniment to steamed white rice.
