Absolutely delicious! My husband told me I could make it seven days a week! The only thing that I did different was use Splenda instead of sugar (because we eat low-carb,) used butter instead of lard, and added some minced garlic (because I love it!) I will definitely make this again.
The fish needs to be cooked longer than indicated for the first frying, otherwise the fish isn't done and won't flake. I breaded with flour. Then in another pan, I added all the sauce stuff and then transferred the fish into there (where again I cooked it longer). Overall pretty good.
Omit the salt and it's perfect! I also used ketchup instead of tomato sauce to avoid opening an entire can and it came out great. Very flavorful and perfect served over rice with a side of steamed asparagus.
This recipe was very easy and has a LOT of flavor to it! We used striped bass instead of cod, and recommend to use a not-too-expensive of a fish since the strong flavors of the hoisin sauce and soy sauce, really over-powered the fish flavor. We really enjoyed it. Thanks!
EXCELLENT!!! I used a fresh whole red snapper and can't wait to do this recipe again. My mom made her creole sauce she always makes for fried fish but this time nobody even looked at it. She even took my printed recipe to make some shrimps with it, we loved it. I was even goin to take some pics to post but...
Like Chinese BBQ. Even the kids like this one. I used walleye instead of cod and tomato paste instead of canned tomato sauce. I served with White and Wild Rice Pilaf. Num.
Not my favorite! Very unusual. I did change the fish - I used Orange Roughy b/c we were out of Cod. They are both very middle fish so I figured it wouldn't matter. My husband loved the dish and so did my four year old as well! So maybe I'll fix it again just for something different. I LOVE salt and ended up not added as much salt as it called for and thought the recipe still was too salty - so be careful!
Very good. Used Ocean Perch because it was fresh. Doubled the ketchup/tomato sauce, and added a tablespoon of Dijon mustard to cut the sweetness a bit. No salt needed. Hoisin,soy sauce are both salty. Taste like BBQ fish!
