Fried Parrotfish with Golden Garlic

 Have you heard of Parrot fish or in chinese we call ying wu yu? It have a very nice sweet and tender flesh.You can either pan fry or steam with it. I fried my  parrot fish with golden garlic.The tender ,sweet flesh of the fish goes well with the crispiness of the golden garlic.So delicious!

Here's the recipe:
1 parrot fish tail (I used half slice )
4-5 tbsp chopped garlic

Gravy:
1 tbsp oil
2 tbsp chopped garlic
2 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tsp sugar
1 tbsp shaoxing wine
100 ml water

Method:
Clean the parrot fish tail, rub some salt and leave for 5 minutes.
In a bowl, combine soya sauce,oyster sauce,sugar,shaoxing wine and water,mix well.
Wash the parrot fish tail, and pat dry.
Heat up oil for deep-frying, deep-fry fish tail until golden brown.
Dish and drain.
Put chopped garlic into the same wok and deep-fry until crispy.Dish and drain.
Sprinkle onto the fried parrot fish tail.

Gravy:
Heat up oil,stir-fry chopped garlic until fragrance.
Add in the combined sauce and bring to boil.
Remove from heat and pour over the fish.

*I don't like the garlic in the sauce, so I drain it, before pour it over the fish.

 This is parrot fish looks like, I asked the fishmonger to clean and cut for me, otherwise, it's hard for me to cut it into 2.

I have not heard about Parrot fish before but am sure other whole fish can also be used.

This is such a delicious recipe which I cook quite often although I add in some chilly flakes for spicy taste.
