Deep fried halibut with sweet and sour sauce. Halibut can be substituted with cod or any other white fish.
INGREDIENTS (for 3 servings):
- 1 pound halibut
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- 2 cups oil for deep frying
- 1 green bell pepper, diced
- 1 onion, diced
- 1 (8 ounce) can pineapple chunks, juice reserved
- 1 1/2 tablespoons white sugar
- salt to taste
- 3 tablespoons ketchup
- 1 tablespoon water
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
Cut halibut into bite-size pieces. Place in a mixing bowl and combine with soy sauce and 1 tablespoon of flour. Let stand for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, heat oil in deep-fryer or heavy saucepan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Deep fry halibut pieces until golden brown. Drain on paper towels; set aside.
For the Sauce, saute green pepper, onion and pineapple in a medium skillet for 1 minute. Stir in reserved pineapple juice, sugar, ketchup, water, remaining 2 teaspoons of flour, sesame oil, and salt to taste. Cook until thickened, stirring occasionally.
Serve, by dipping fried halibut pieces into sauce, or pour the sauce over the fish.
We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount may vary depending on cook time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
