Chinese Sweet and sour fish recipe


Sweet and sour is a combination that originally came from Asia. Several Asian food (mostly of Chinese origin) adopted this blend. Based on articles, the Chinese (particularly the Cantonese) were the one’s who originally came up with the thought of mixing these two different flavors. This Sweet and Sour Tilapia Recipe is a ood example of this.

Sweet-and-Sour-Fish

Generally, sweet and sour fish can be prepared using fish fillet or whole fish. Traditionally though, whole fish such as grouper (lapu-lapu) is commonly used. I tried using tilapia to make Sweet and Sour Fish because tilapia is a common fish easily available in almost all locations. It is also reasonably priced, which means it is budget friendly.

I enjoy eating Sweet and Sour fish because I love the flavor. This manner of preparation reduces the fishy smell and taste of the fish making it more enjoyable to the palate. It also goes well with rice whether fried or steamed.
