Juicy Fried Fish In Tomato Sauce

Sick and tired of repeating the same fried fish or fish in curry the-desi -style recipes over and over again? If yes, this Chinese style quick and easy “juicy fried fish in tomato sauce” will be a breath of fresh air, for sure.

Once you fry the fish chunks, try to hide them somewhere

What you need

Fish 1 kg
Ketchup 1/2 cup
Tomatoes 3 finely chopped
Soya sauce 2 tbsp
Chilli Sauce 1 tbsp
Garlic/ginger paste  2 tsp
Onions  2 medium, finely chopped
Vinegar 2 tbsp
Water  1 cup
Oil 4 tbsp
Coriander 1 tbsp, fresh green, finely chopped
Salt 1 tsp
Black pepper 1 1/2 tsp
Corn flour + water as needed (solution to thicken the sauce)

For fish Marination

Salt 1 tsp
Egg  1
Corn flour 2 tbsp
Black pepper 1 tsp

How it’s made

  1. Take a clean, dry bowl and throw in dry fish cubes.
  2. Now marinate fish in salt, black pepper, vinegar, egg and leave it for 10-15 minutes. Then deep fry the fish cubes in hot oil till golden brown, take out on a kitchen paper and set aside.
  3. Blend together tomatoes, garlic/ginger paste, ketchup, chilli sauce, salt, black pepper into a paste and set aside.
  4. Next, take oil in a pan and throw in finely chopped onions.
  5. Sautee onions and add in the paste. Cook paste for 10-15 minutes or until oil comes on top.
  6. Now throw in fried fish cubes, give everything a good mix and cook for further 5-10 minutes, add water if needed.
  7. Sprinkle coriander on top and serve it sizzling hot with chicken fried rice or garlic fried rice.

I didn’t make my sauce too thin so, I didn’t have to add any corn flour plus water solution to thicken the sauce. But, if you are catering for more people, you can make extra sauce and later thicken it with corn flour solution.
