Thai Style Fish & Salsa with Chips

This is my favourite summer fish recipe and has become pretty much my signature dish. What sets this recipe apart is the Thai influenced salsa that just explodes with flavour alongside a tender piece of your favourite fish. I cook this with small whole fish like bream or snapper but a nice fillet with the skin on would do just fine...and there's no bones to deal with.

Ingredients

Method

  • 1.

    Prepare the Dressing first

  • 2.

    Place all ingredients except Chillies into a bowl and stir to dissolve the sugar

  • 3.

    Adjust taste by adding more water if too salty, add more lime juice if desired

  • 4.

    Combine chopped Red Chili with the dressing and keep aside.

  • 5.

    Next Prepare the Salsa

  • 6.

    Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and gently mix with a wooden spoon being careful not to smash the ingredients too much.

  • 7.

    Add 4-6 Tbsp of the Dressing and mix well. Add more if desired

  • 8.

    Sprinkle the Fish with the Chinese Five Spice then dust in the Rice Flour to coat well

  • 9.

    Heat the Oil in a large wok and deep fry the fish until done (about 4-5 minutes)

  • 10.

    Serve the Fish hot from the pan drizzled with a little of the Dressing and a generous serve of Salsa

  • 11.

    Garnish with Fried Shallots

  • 12.

    Don't forget your Potato Chips, which by now are pretty much optional.

Notes

This Salsa also goes great with a serve of cooked Glass Noodles and a helping of cooked Prawns. Combine all ingredients well for a light sumer lunch that that packs a punch.

For a healthy alternative cook the fish on a bbq
