Ingredients

Sweet and Sour Sauce:

Directions

  1. Mix the cornstarch and flour together. Season the snapper with salt and freshly ground black pepper, and dredge in the flour mixture. Fill a deep pot halfway full with oil. Heat oil to 350 degrees F, and fry fish until golden, toss directly into hot sauce, and serve.

Sweet and Sour Sauce:

Yield: About 2 1/2 cups
  1. Put a small saucepan over medium heat, add oil, onions, and ginger. Saute for 2 minutes. Add vinegar, sugar, ketchup, and duck sauce. Bring to a simmer for 5 minutes, add water to desired consistency if sauce is too thick. Season with salt and pepper.

Cook’s Note

If you like it spicy, add sambal oelek, garlic chili sauce to season.
