This delightful recipe features a sweet and sour marinated fish that will have you savoring every bite! The star of the show here is the original marinade that brings out the flavors of the fish.
For Fried Fish:
- Fish (I used haddock) – 1.5 kg (3.3 lbs)
- Wheat flour (for coating the fish) – 1 cup
- Vegetable oil (for frying the fish) – 150 ml (5.1 fl oz)
For the Marinade:
- Water (cold, boiled; 1 cup = 250 ml) – 1 cup
- Tomato sauce (sauce with vegetable chunks; 1 can = 500 ml) – 1 can
- Vegetable oil – 1 cup
- Sugar – 1 cup
- Vinegar (6% wine vinegar) – 100 ml (3.4 fl oz)
- Salt (heaping teaspoon) – 1 tsp
- White onions (large) – 2 pcs
Peel and slice the fish into pieces about 1.5 centimeters thick. Do not salt the fish.
Coat the fish in wheat flour and fry it in vegetable oil over medium heat until it’s fully cooked.
Cut the onions into quarters and slice them into thin rings.
Place the cooked fish in a pot and layer it with the sliced onions.
To prepare the marinade, mix in a container: 1 cup of cold boiled water, 500 ml of tomato sauce with vegetable chunks, 1 cup of vegetable oil, 1 cup of sugar, 100 ml of 6% wine vinegar, and 1 heaping teaspoon of salt.
Blend the marinade until you have a smooth emulsion, which should take about 30 seconds.
Pour the marinade over the fish and onions in the pot. You can also add a couple of bay leaves if you like.
Cover the pot with a lid and place it in the refrigerator for marinating for 5 hours.
