Whole Fish Fried with Basil and Chiles Recipe

Directions

Share

Ingredients :

  • 1 whole (10 ounce) tilapia, or more as desired
  • oil for deep frying
  • Methods :

  • Step 1

    Cut several angled slits along the body of the fish, cutting down to the rib bones. Cut 2 lateral slits along the back of the fish, from head to tail on either side of the dorsal fin. These cuts will ensure quick cooking and maximum crispiness.

  • Step 2

    Heat oil for frying in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Step 3

    Gently place fish into the hot oil and fry until crispy, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Gently remove fish from the oil and drain on a paper towel-lined plate.

  • Step 4

    Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a wok or large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion, red chile peppers, and garlic until lightly browned, 5 to 10 minutes. Add fish sauce and soy sauce and remove wok from heat. Quickly stir basil and cilantro into sauce.

  • Step 5

    Place fish on a large serving platter and pour sauce over fish.
