Fried Fish in Lak Zi Sauce

I like this dish as it is easy to prepare and the ingredients, including the sauce, can be easily obtained in overseas.  When I was young, my mum like to cook this with fried Mackerel fillet and it become my favorite. When I’m in Australia and France, I tried pan sear Cod fillet and I like it more than fried Mackerel fillet. You also can cook it with whole fish instead of fillet. You can serve this dish with steam rice or noodles, instant noodle will be be nice.


  • 2 pieces of fillet or 1 hole fish about 600 g
  • 100 g minced pork (can be replaced with chicken or sausages)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon chopped red chili
  • 2 tablespoon spring onion
  • 6 tablespoon Lak Zi Sauce
  • Salt to taste
  • Sugar to taste

  • Cut three slits in the fish or fillets and pan fry in hot oil until both side are golden brown. Instead of pan fry, you can also pan sear the fillets.
  • Dish up.
