This is a really healthy, but delicious version of the sweet and sour sauce you get in a takeaway. I was surprised at how easy and tasty this is. It is my wife’s favourite from the local chinese restaurant, and met up to her high standards.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a frying pan, once hot add the fish skin side down, and fry for 4-5 mins, the skin should be crisp, but not burnt. Now turn and cook, flesh side down, for a further 4-5 minutes. Set aside and keep warm whilst you make the sauce.
  2. Wipe the pan clean with a piece of kitchen towel, then heat another 2 tbsp of groundnut oil, add the green pepper and onion, and fry for 2 mins until it starts to soften, then add the pineapple and mix it all together.
  3. Now add the sugar, trying to spread it evenly across the pan, let it caramelize for 2-3 mins, try not to stir, but don't let it burn. When you have a nice caramel add the vinegar, stir well.
  4. Now remove from the heat, stir well and then add the tomato sauce and soy sauce, stir again, and add some water if it is too thick for your liking.
  5. You can either add the fish to the sauce or use it as a dipping sauce. Serve straight away, and enjoy whilst hot.
