Vietnamese Fried Fish with Tomato Sauce Recipe

Serves/Makes: 2

Ingredients:

  • 1 slice bluefish or king mackerel (about 1/2 pound and 1/2-inch thick)
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 scallion, white part only
  • 1 medium ripe tomato
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons nuoc mam (Vietnamese fish sauce)
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • Sprinkling of fresh ground black pepper
How to cook Vietnamese Fried Fish with Tomato Sauce:
  • Slice the garlic and scallion paper thin; combine and set aside. Cut the tomato into small dice and set aside.
  • In a small frying pan, just large enough to accommodate the fish slice, heat the oil over a high flame and add the fish. Turn the heat down to medium and fry the fish on either side until well browned. Remove to a warm platter.
  • Remove all the oil from the pan except for 2 teaspoons. Add the garlic and scallion and stir until brown. Add the diced tomato and stir; then add the fish sauce, sugar, and black pepper.
  • Boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly, then pour over the fish and serve hot with steamed white rice.
