Step 1 There are 2 steps in making this delicious recipe. First, we need to prepare the fish then second, the sauce. Begin by giving the fish and nice seasoning of salt and pepper. If using enoki mushrooms, season mushrooms as well.
Step 2 Next, prepare 2 bowls for the beaten egg and the other one is for the cornstarch. Dip the fish in the beaten egg then dredge in cornstarch. Prepare a shallow pot with oil and make it nice and hot over medium high heat. Fry the fish in hot oil until nicely browned. Remove and drain on top of a plate lined with paper towel. Set aside. Do this to the seasoned enoki mushrooms as well.
Step 3 For the sauce, get a pan and make it nice and hot over medium heat. Add oil, and sauté garlic and shallots until brown and aromatic.
Step 4 Toss in the cubed red and green bell pepper, add the banana ketchup, pineapple tidbits, Knorr Chicken Cube, white vinegar and sugar. And let it simmer for 5 mins. You can add the dissolved cornstarch to thicken the sauce. Continue to simmer until all ingredients are fully mixed together.
Step 5 You can now top the sauce to your fried fish to enjoy this delicious and heart healthy Sweet and Sour Fish. Best served with steamed Bok-Choi on the side.
