Sweet and Sour Fish

This is one easy fish recipe and my husband's favorite....easy as I can make it for a weekday dinner....after work ;)

For the fish :
3 slices of spanish mackerel (u can use any other fish slices)
1 egg (beaten)

Dip fish slices in egg and fry till slightly golden and cooked but make sure nor to over fry it. Keep aside in a serving bowl.

For the sauce:
1 yellow onion (sliced thinly)
1 1/2 inch ginger (sliced thinly)
4 cloves garlic (sliced thinly)
4 tbsp tomato sauce
2 tbsp chilli sauce
3/4 tsp dark soy sauce (depends on the colour you want)
2 tbsp oyster sauce
2 tomatoes (sliced thinly)

Heat oil and fry onions, ginger and garlic till aromatic. Add all the sauces, tomatoes and enough water, let it boil...add salt.....cook till sauce becomes a little thick and to your liking....amount of sauces and water can be modified according to taste and serving.....taste along the way and make adjustments till you hit the right notes ;).....pour over fish slices and let it sit for a while before serving (so that the fish absorbs a little of the flavours)
