Made with love for someone who missed Singapore's local cuisine.. loves




Ingredients A
1 large snapper fish, wash, gutted
2 tbsp sesame oil
cornstarch to coat the fish
1 white onion, quartered
1 egg, beaten

Ingredients for Sauce : stir to mix
150ml Chilli sauce(maggi)
100ml tomato ketchup
50g sugar
juice from 1 lemon


Method
1. rub sesame oil all over the fish. Dust with cornstarch to coat it.
2. Heat up wok with oil and deep fry fish over high heat for 5 mins.
3. Remove and drain excess oil.
4. Put fish on a plate.
5. Keep the oil and leave 1 tbsp on the wok to heat again.
6. Add onions to stir fry till slightly brown and soft.
7. Pour the sauce in and cook till its bubbling hot.
8. Pour beaten egg in..move in a circular motion so that the egg are scattered all over. And not in the same spot (center).
9. Leave to cook for a further 1 minute. Do not stir or the eggs will break and form into lumps.
10. Turn off the fire and pour the sauce over the fish.
11. Serve immediately


Notes
If you cannot get or find Maggi Chilli Sauce, use 1 whole bottle of tomato ketchup and add 3 tsp of Tabasco sauce. Do not add more as Tabasco sauce is very hot and spicy.

If you manage to find Thai Sweet Chilli sauce in Asian supermarkets, you can use that too. Just don't add lemon juice. As the Thai Sweet chilli sauce has a hint of lime taste. The lemon juice helps to bring out the flavour of the sauce.

This is the sauce used for cooking Singapore's famous Chilli Crab. It goes very well with seafood. So you can use it with Prawns, Crabs, Fish. But not squids.
