Sweet and Sour Fish

I had posted Pork Meatballs with Sweet and Sour sauce earlier. To those who do not eat pork, do not fret as there is a healthier version to this dish, by using Fish instead of pork and it is easier to prepare.


1 whole medium sized fish. Normally we use Lapu Lapu (Red Grouper)
Cooking oil for frying

For the sauce:

1/3 cup white vinegar
4 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoon ketchup
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 medium sized carrots, sliced
1 red bell pepper sliced into strips
1 medium sized onion, sliced
2 tablespoons cornstarch mixed with 4 tablespoons water


Fry the fish in a frying pan. Once done, remove the fish from the pan and drain excess oil.
To prepare the sauce, mix all the ingredients together except for the last ingredient.
Bring to a boil.
Wxhen the mixture is already boiling and the vegetable tender, add the cornstarch+water mixture to thicken the sauce. remove from fire.
