    Sweet and sour fish recipe that you can serve anyone who loves fish. This has a balance of sourly-sweet tang that mixes wonderfully in your mouth.


    • one whole fleshy fish (lapulapu, red snapper, carp)
    • 1 tsp salt
    • 1 tsp pepper
    • some flour to dredge the fish in
    • 1 tsp minced garlic
    • 1 tbsp ginger root (cut into thin strips)
    • 1/2 cup sliced onions
    • 1 cup red and green bell peppers (cut into strips)
    • 2 tbsp canola oil
    • 2 cups water
    • 1/4 cup vinegar
    • 1/4 cup brown sugar
    • 2 tbsp soy sauce
    • 2 tbsp cornstarch


    1. Rub the fish with salt and pepper. Dredge with flour and then deep-fry in very hot oil. Set aside.
