Fried Fish with Tamarind Sauce

About Thailand Cooking

Another interesting dish which is a bit expensive in the restaurant but you can make it yourself at home with a lot cheaper price.

The ingredients are:
– Tamarind
– Sugar
– Shallot
– Garlic
– Fish sauce
– Chili pepper
– Cilantro

Any meaty fish is good for this dish, so the dish is not a problem to find one in any part of the world to cook this dish.

Start the dish by cooking the fish first. First of all, heat the pan and then put the oil in it, pour the oil in the pan and make sure it’s enough to cover the side of the fish. Fried the fish with low heat if you want to get the crispy fish and I suggest that this fish in this dish should be crispy because it tastes a lot better with the sauce and very yummy. It’s generally very simple for this process because we just fired the fish, nothing more to be done.

Once we get the fried fish, we continue with the tamarind sauce and this is how we do it.
Add the rest ingredient together on the hot pan and let them boil, if the sauce start to get too thick, add some water to solve the problem. At the end, the sauce should be spicy, sweet and sour. So in order to make sure you get the right taste you want, before you finish the pan, taste the sauce first and add up some ingredients until you get the taste you want like add more sugar if not sweet enough or tamarind if you feel like you add too much water before or add some more water when you feel like the sauce is way too tasty.

After you get the sauce, pour it on the top of the fish and serve with the hot dish. In order to get the hot dish, you should do the sauce while frying the fish, in this way you will get very hot dish to serve and very delicious.
