Pan-Fried Red Snapper with Red Sauce+Merry Christmas

First of all I would like to wish all my dear readers ,friends and family a Merry Christmas!! May this coming Christmas bring joy,peace and happiness to you and family.
I'm a fish lover,so is my daughter Mishu..I always encourage her to eat fish with me.I like to get whole fish with bone and head attached becos it's taste fresher and tasty but I was advised if I cook fish for Mishu I should get boneless fish instead..I think I trained Mishu well from small how to eat whole fish with bone attached .She is quite good when eating whole fish..The red snapper is known as a very tasty fish and it's quite pricey compare with tilapia,sea bass or flounder.A pound cost more then $5.00..I think eating sea water fish in moderate is better then eating red meat or other meat right?


1 red snapper,clean and head removed,about 2 lbs

3 tbsp rice flour

1 tbsp salt

1/4 cup canola oil


For the Sauce:(B)

1 tbsp hoisin sauce

2 tbsp ketchup

1 tsp minced garlic

3 tbsp sugar

2 tbsp cooking wine

3 tbsp water

salt to taste

drop of red coloring*optional*

1 small onion,peeled and sliced

handful cut cilantro for garnishing


1:Rub clean fish with salt before coated with rice flour.Heat aluminium skillet with oil at medium high heat.When oil is hot about 350 F,slowly place coated fish onto the skillet.Fried each side for 5 minutes or until lightly golden brown.Removed and set aside.

2:Heat a sauce pan at medium heat with few drop of oil and garlic,fry garlic for 30 seconds,add in all ingredients (B). Keep stirring until sauce become thicken,add in sliced onion,check the seasoning.
