I used any fish that have thick skin and can be deep fried or pan fried so that the skin won't tear easily

look at yours, and look at mine :(

its a total disaster :(

The stupid fish went naked, the skin sticked to the wok :(
the gravy is so thick and glue like :(
The dish is so unappetising :(

AND the fish's like saying, "it doesn't deserve to die this way" .. *sob sob*

fish skin stuck to the wok, would mean the oil is not hot enough. When u deep fry a fish, the oil must be hot. initially it will stick to the bottom of the wok, leave it for 3 mins, then slowly push it with the spatula, it will dislodged..then flip it over.

as to the sauce being sticky, you must have over cooked it. With cornstarch added, its a quick stir fry. once you see its slightly thicken, you must turn off the fire. if you continue to cook it, it will turn into a sticky mess.
