Deep Fried Snapper with Sambal Belacan Dip

Cooking Time: 10 Minutes

Dificulty: Easy



4 cutlets of Red Snapper fish (washed, kidney removed, marinated with salt)


1. Prepare a wok of hot oil at high heat (170-180 degrees). Slowly put in the fish cutlets and deep fry them for 3-4 minutes each side.

TIPS: There will be smoke seen above the oil when the temperature is about 170-180 degree celcius.

TIPS: Use a spatula to slowly insert the fish into the oil.

2. Flip to other side after about 4 minutes and deep fry until it turns golden brown colour.

3. Push the fried fish to the edge of the wok to take the fish out. Put it on a plate of kitchen towel to absorb the excess oil.

4. Serve it with sambal belacan dip and calamansi.
