Sweet and sour fish for dinner makes everyone happy. I made an awesome dinner the other evening. I cooked 2 sweet and sour black pomfret fish. The fish were actually quite big and we finished them all. I’m very happy as long as I can get my family to eat fish. Pomfret is a great fish for this dish. You can use the black or the white pomfret.

I also fried my dad’s favourite vegetable dish of leafy vegetables and eggs. The kimchi that I made a few days was a great addition to the lovely meal. Cooking the sweet and sour fish is very easy. It’s quite similar to cooking the sweet and sour pork. My daughter helped me to make the sauce. I showed her my blog post for her to refer. She felt so proud she helped me. I’m also happy because she is learning.

Blogging about food is terrific because my children will always know where to go and what to do if they ever miss my food. It is one of the Top 11 Reasons Why Blogging Is Beneficial For Everyone.

Ingredients A
1 black pomfret fish
corn flour

Clean the pomfret fish. Make 3 diagonal cuts on both sides of the fish. Rub some salt over it and then sprinkle some corn flour on both sides. Leave it aside for a while. Then fan fry it until cooked and browned on both sides.

Ingredients C
2C fresh pineapple cubes
1 tomato (cut into wedges)

Remove the fried fish to a big plate. Pour Ingredients B into the frying. Bring to a boil and then add in the pineapple pieces and tomato wedges. Give a quick stir and pour over the fish. You can add some greens on top to garnish.

Serve hot with plain rice. Cook a plate of stir fried vegetables to go with it and enjoy a lovely meal. Serve with kimchi too. It’s awesome.

That looks fantastic. All of it. I could see that you’re still Asian by heart even if you’ve been away from Asia for quite a long time. Hard question. I love Chinese food most especially my father’s cooking. His signature dish is a braised pork leg in sauce and his braised pork belly.

This looks delicious Mary I bet the pomfret fish tastes so good with the sweet and sour flavours. :-)

That’s great…you can try with other fish as well such as Red Tilapia (I’m not sure if your place has that fish or not). Great to keep Asian food alive

Divina, thanks for comments.Yes, I’m still very Asian in my heart LOL. But love food from other countries too. Will try and cook your favourite one day. Stay tuned.

Jeena, thanks for comments. Pomfret fish is especially nice for this dish.

Sidney, thanks for comments and suggestion. I have to check it out whether there’s the Red Tilapia here.
