Dorade Tiga Rasa

My friend, gave this fish several days ago. In Germany it is called Dorade. Some say it is similar to seabass or siakap in Malay. But to me, it looks a bit diferent from siakap. But it does taste like one.

At first I thought I wanted to make steamed fish but I don't have steamer. So just made do with fried fish with recipe called "Ikan Tiga Rasa" (Fried fish with 3 Flavours - or Tastes?). It basically has the sweet, sour and hot tastes of sauce.


Fish - any type that suitable for deep frying, wash cleanly.
Some corn flour
1 onion - cut into small cubes
2 cloves of garlic - mince
1 inch ginger - mince
2 tbs dried chili paste
2 tbs tomato sauce
2 tbs chili sauce
2 tbs oyster sauce
1 green capsicum - cut into cubes
1 tomato - cut into cubes
Salad leaves - for garnishing
Celery leaves- for garnishing
1/2 carrot - cut into thin pieces - for garnishing


1. Sprinkle salt on the both sides of the fish.
2. Coat fish wih some corn flour
3. Deep fry the fish until golden/brown. Toss and put on a serving plate.
4. On another pan, heat up some oil
5. Stir in garlic, onion and ginger, cook until golden.
6. Add dried chili paste. Cook for a while. Add a little water if it too dry.
7. Add all sauces. Mix well.
8. Add some water to lighten the gravy.
9. Add salt and sugar to taste.
10. Add tomato and capsicum.
11. Pour the sauce onto the fried fish.
12. Garnish with salad, celery leaves and carrots.
