I love fish, but I don’t eat enough of them here in the United States; I can hardly find the ones I love most.
Growing up in Malaysia, fresh fish is abundant. There are all kinds of fish available in the wet market–big, small, tiny, deep-sea, or fresh water. I prefer smaller and tiny fish, deep-fried to crispy goodness that I can just eat the whole fish with bones. If you’ve tried those, you know how great they are.
Recently, I found a bucket of small red cod on sale. Each of them was about 6-8 oz. If you read my steamed fish recipe, you’ll know that I love red cod. Without any hesitation, I got a couple of them and made fried fish with soy sauce–one of the simplest recipes for fried fish, but super delicious especially when you drench the ginger soy sauce with steamed white rice…mmm heavenly…
If you are tired of plain old fried fish with salt, try my fried fish with soy sauce recipe. I bet you will love it.
