Inherited this recipe from our confinement lady but we modified by baking the fish instead of deep frying it so that the house will not be “infused” with the fishy “aroma”. Sweet and sour is one of my fav fish sauce as it whets up your appetite. Here’s the recipe:

1 seabass
2 tablespoons light soy sauce
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon ginger juice
a dash of pepper
6 tablespoons tomato ketchup
2 teaspoons sugar
2 tablespoons minced ginger
1 clove garlic, minced
1 shallot, minced
1/2-1/3 cup water
1 tomato, cut into fours

1. Marinate seabass in lemon juice, ginger juice, light soy sauce and pepper. Set aside in fridge while you prepare other ingredients.
2. Heat up oil and stir fry ginger, garlic, and onion until fragrant. Then add tomato ketchup and water. Continue frying the sauce on medium heat and then add tomato. Sauce is ready.
3. Baked seabass in preheated oven at 190 degrees for 20 minutes.
3. Pour sauce over baked fish and Voila, it’s ready to serve.
