Yesterday, I went to the supermarket and this particular Golden Pomfret or to be accurate the name is Pompano are actually on promotion for RM12 per piece. Not only it huge but fresh too. So, I can’t resist and grabbed two.
I think the best way to cook this fish is to deep fry and drizzle with soy sauce mixture. I love to top with fried ginger and scallion. And oh boy… the soy sauce mixture is so tasty and goes really well with the fish.
And if you love spicy, feel free to add more cili padi or else, you can just omit it.
So, here the recipe and hope you love it, like I did!
