Crispy Cod Fish with Mango & Sweet Chilli sauce - FOODBUZZ TOP 9 & featured in Group Recipes

Largely adapted from Chef Sam Leong’s recipe
Do not underestimate this simple recipe. Before I submitted this dish to my food critic, I ate my share in the kitchen. So, do I need to elaborate further how delectable this is?
Serving: 2

Ingredients:
2 pc 100 gm cod fillet
Tapioca flour
Cooking oil for deep frying
Thai sweet chilli sauce (easily available at any supermarket)

Garnish:
10 gm green mango, julienned
5 gm carrot, julienned
2 stalks mint leaf

Method:
Score fish fillet diagonally and repeat in the opposite direction, leaving the skin to hold the resulting cubes together. Dust fillet with tapioca flour. Heat oil for deep frying and deep fry the fish fillet until skin turns crisp and golden brown. Drain and place on serving plate. Spoon some sweet chilli sauce over the fish fillet. Garnish with mint leaf, mango and carrot and serve.

Note : You must eat the fish together with the mango and carrot with each bite to get the intended taste for this dish.

  6. Hey Quay Po,

    This may be simple but it has amazing written all over it. I love the presentation, the wonderful textures, and of course the delicious ingredients you've combined together. Green mango totally rocks and has the perfect crunch to match with the carrots - great idea!
