This is my second attempt with the General Tso’s glaze sauce and this time around, I experimented with fish fillet – Ikan Tenggiri (also known as the Spanish Mackerel). The first attempt was General Tso’s Pork Chop. I know that the General Tso’s sauce is not easily found in Malaysia but you may have better luck in other Asian countries like Singapore. As for the fish fillet, you can use any other type of fish. This recipe is basically a no-brainer and one so simple which you can whip up in 30 minutes (including marinating time). As for the snow peas which you see in the picture, just add them for a little colour contrast and to add some dietary fibre to your meal. You can pre-steam the snow peas or blanch them. They actually taste quite good with the sauce.
This is my quick recipe for General Tso’s Fillet of Tenggiri
- 1 slice of Ikan Tenggiri (or any other fish fillet)
- 2 cloves garlic (chopped finely)
- 5 tablespoons cooking oil
- 50 ml warm water
- 1 1/2 tablespoons General Tso’s glazing sauce
Marinade fish with a light sprinkle of salt for about 20 minutes and rinse it slightly before patting it dry for frying.
Heat oil in wok / pan till hot and fry fish till golden brown. Remove fried fish and set aside.
Remove oil from wok / pan. Reduce heat to low, add garlic and saute till aromatic. Add General Tso’s glazing sauce and water. Add salt and sugar to taste.
When sauce starts to boil, return fried fish into wok / pan, coat it with sauce and dish up.
