IngredientsServes: 4

  • 1 (1.5kg) whole mackerel, gutted and cleaned
  • 475ml water
  • 1 tablespoon tamarind soup base
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 1 litre oil for frying

MethodPrep:10min ›Cook:40min ›Extra time:1hr resting › Ready in:1hr50min

  1. Combine the mackerel, water, tamarind soup base and fish sauce in a pot over medium heat. Cover and simmer for about 15 minutes. Flip the fish, cover again and simmer another 15 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to sit, covered, for 1 hour.
  2. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 175 degrees C. Remove the fish from the pot and pat dry with kitchen paper to remove as much excess moisture as possible.
  3. Fry the fish in the hot oil until golden brown, 7 to 10 minutes. Serve hot.
