Here’s my own version of Talikitok with Sweet and Sour Sauce.Pardon me on some errors in culinary terms because I’m just a chef-wannabe.
2 pcs Talakitok (or any fish of ychoice)
For the Sweet and Sour Sauce:
3 tbsp. Tomato paste
1 pc medium sized onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 pc tomato, chopped
1 pc carrot, diced
1 pc, red bell pepper, cut into strips
1/4 cup cornstarch, diluted in water
salt and pepper to taste
Heat enough oil in a frying pan. Coat the fish with salt. Once the oil is hot, fry the fish until golden brown. When cooked, remove from oil andset aside in the serving platter.
To prepare the sweet and sour sauce, saute onion, garlic, ginger and tomato. Add carrots and tomato paste. Add 2 cups water. Add salt and pepper. Simmer until the carrots is cooked (but still crunchy). Add the bell pepper and simmer for 2 minutes. Transfer the sauce in a bowl and serve together with the fried talakitok.
