1 seawater fish (yellow croacker ) (about 750 grams or 1065lb)

150 grams (8tbsp) tomato sauce

500 grams (2 cups) cooking oil (only 100 grams or 8tbsp to be actually consumed)

50 grams (3tbsp) white vinegar

150 (11.5tbsp) grams sugar

6 grams (1tsp) salt

2 grams (0.07oz) minced garlic

2 grams (1/2tsp) MSG

100 grams (6tbsp) water

150 grams (3/4 cup) dry cornstarch

50 grams (2.7tbsp) mixture of cornstarch and water

25 grams (5tsp) cooking wine


(1)Clean the fish and on each side make four horizontal cuts. Marinate the fish with 4 grams (2/3tsp) of salt and the cooking wine.

(2)Dust the fish with dry cornstarch on both sides and then shake off the unnecessary cornstarch that does not stick to the fish.

(3)Heat the oil until about 180-200°C (255-390°F). Put in the fish to deep-dry and then take it out when it is golden brown in color.

(4)Leave 10 grams (2tsp) of oil in the wok and fry the minced garlic until it releases its aromatic smell. Add the tomato sauce, sugar, 2 grams (1/3tsp) of salt, MSG, water and vinegar. Put in the cornstarch-water mixture to thicken the sauce. Now place the fish on a plate to serve.
