I was goggling for a simple Penang fish recipe and I found this from Rasa Malaysia, Penang Nyonya Cooking. Eh... to my surprise, this is a Penang dish and this steamed sweet sour fish is not new to me and others too. I used to prepare this steamed fish and sometimes I would just deep fry the fish but use the same sauce. It is simple and very appetizing. Give this a try if you haven't and you would not regret.
For deep fried, sometimes I added apples to the sauce and it's yummy. Will post this fried
