a simple fried fish that is a favourite with the family.


Ingredients:
1 black pomfret(cleaned, gutted)
1 tbsp sesame oil
2 tbsp corn starch
2 tbsp Dark Soya Sauce

Method:
1. Cut deep cuts on the body of the fish.
2. Marinate with sesame oil for 10 mins.
3. Coat with cornstarch.
4. Deep fry for 10 mins(5 mins per side) till crispy brown.
5. Drain excess oil, serve on a plate.
6. Drizzle Dark Soya sauce on top.

This goes well with just plain porridge or rice.

Gina, those noodles that the fish sits on in your pix, how do you do them. I think when dishes that are simple but served with together with some "accessories" will brighten the dish. What kind of noodle is that? Do you need to cook it? It can be eaten right? Embarassed Do I sound silly?

Hi hungry

oh..that is just plain Maggi noodles in a packet. I took it out and deep fry it for 2 mins till golden brown..break it and lay it on the plate. Yes, can be eaten.

very much like the Yam ring where they had the deep fried beehoon sprinkle on top. same method..just take a bunch of dried, uncooked beehoon, deep fry till its crispy.

Gina, paisay for digging up such an old post. Can I ask normally black pomfret should be deep fried and not steam? Bec I steam one last night and it taste really fishy (even though already added ginger).

Its usually deep fried because the skin is thicker and won't tear easily during deep frying method.

You can steam it if you prefer it steamed. If it has fishy smell, just means the fish is not fresh.

Fresh fish has no fishy smell. its fish that is not fresh that gives that horrid fishy smell. When we buy fresh fish from market or supermarket, after gutting/scaling it, I would freeze it immediately. Usually won't have smell.

White pomfret are often steamed because the meat is more tender, skin is thinner. If you deep fry white pomfret, the meat will break up, the skin will stick to the wok.

I do fry mine like yours too, Gina. But I didn't season with sesame oil, just coat with cornstarch n fry then pour some black soya sauce on it. Everybody in the family loved it. Will try your style by seasoning with sesame oil one day.

I added the sesame oil to make the skin more supple, fragrant too. so when deep fried, it doesn't dry it too much. My late father in law taught me this tip.

yummy

Hi Gina,
I tried today using your method and indeed the fish was more fragrant. Thanks for the tip.

its the same thing, especially if you buy the local ones.

However, its a different thing only when its YELLOW in colour. That one is used for baking corn muffins. yummy
