made sweet & sour dory fish fillet with onions & carrots this morning on 13.8.2016. ^^
this my 10th community lunch dish for bathesda community’s newgate learning hub (bread of life). ^^
i cut the sutchi fish fillet into about 8 pieces each, totaled >72 pieces , washed them wit salt & drained & toweled dry.
i fried the vegetables & fish in separate wokpans.
fish fillet using my usual marinade – 2 tbsp olive oil, 2 tbsp mirin, 2 tbsp light soy sauce. for sweet & sour i added 1 tbsp flat sugar, 1 tbsp white wine vinegar & 3 tbsp heap tomato ketchup.
also added 2 tsp chopped garlic, & some sesame oil.
the fish i fried only about 4 mins, not to overcook.
as there was a lot of liquids, i strained the fish & added the liquids to the vegetables.
i added 1 tbsp oyster sauce & 1 tbsp corn flour & some slat to taste. covered & let the carrots cook & sauce thicken.
then added back the fish fillet.
and mixed well so the fish were well coated with the thickened sauce.
for bread of life usually about 60+pax, today slightly more about 70pax. the dish was portioned out nicely.
