The Thai chilli sauce skating around the fish delights the eyes as our teeth sink into the crispy and crunchy fish meat! Yum!


Number of serving: 5
1 medium-sized or large Pomfret

½ tsp of Salt

1 Egg-white

1 tsp Corn Flour

Pinch of Pepper

Thai chilli sauce for serving

Oil for deep-frying


  • Step 1 - Thai-Style Deep-Fried Golden Pomfret
    Remove entrails if it is not done by your supplier, and clean the Pomfret. Pat dry, and butterfly fish from top down.
  • Marinate fish for about 30 minutes, then rub egg-white on it. Coat with flour after that.
  • Heat oil. Use a pair of chopsticks to check if oil is hot enough. When there are bubbles around the chopsticks, the oil is at the right temperature. Lower the fish, butterfly-side down. Deep fry till golden-brown so that it will open up nicely before laying the entire fish down in oil. Deep fry fish till crispy.
  • Serve your Thai-Style Deep-Fried Golden Pomfret immediately with a sweet chilli sauce.
