Nicely crisp fried fish with sweet spicy tamarind sauce is always highlight of any meal in our house. When it is served on the dining table, it is first one to go-- always.
I love all kind of fish but prefer smaller and tiny one, deep fried to golden goodness that I can enjoy the whole fish with bone. If you have tried it, you know how great it is.
Recently, I found a bucket of Japanese Snapper on sale. Each of them weighed about 350-450 grams. Oh-- I love Japanese Snapper. Without any hesitation, I bought one of them and made fried fish with sweet spicy tamarind sauce-- one of the simplest recipes for fried fish but really delicious especially when you drench the tamarind sauce over steamed rice.
If you can't find Japanese Snapper where you are, feel free to use local fish of your choice. Below is my Fried Snapper with Sweet Spicy Tamarind Sauce recipe.
