Cod Meuniere in a Sweet and Sour Sauce

A mix of French and Chinese cooking but they work really well together!

Recipe By: Tobuchan (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/25)
Serves 2 Prep: 10 min Cook: 15 min

Ingredients

Cod fillets 2
Yellow pepper 1/4
Green pepper 1/4
Onion 1/2
Tomato (medium) 1
Garlic puree 1 tsp
Vinegar 3 tbsp
Tomato ketchup 1 tbsp
Soy sauce 2 tbsp
Mirin 1 tbsp
Chicken stock cube 1
Sugar 1 tsp
Water 50-100ml
Potato starch in a bit of water as required

Method

1
Here are the ingredients.
2
Season the cod with salt & pepper and keep aside for 10 minutes. Dredge with some flour and remove any excess.
3
Put 1 tbsp butter in a frying pan on medium heat.
4
Add the cod and baste with the butter.
5
Fry for 5 minutes each side (baste all the while) then turn the heat off and continue cooking on residual heat before removing to a plate.
6
Make the sweet and sour sauce: put all the chopped vegetables (except the tomato) into the same frying pan and fry.
7
When they're cooked, add all the sauce ingredients (from garlic puree to water). Season to taste.
8
Add the chopped tomato and potato starch to thicken.
9
Transfer the cod from Step 5 to a serving dish, then pour over the sauce from Step 8 - it's ready to enjoy.

Tips & Note

Basting is called 'arroser' in French - it not only keeps the ingredients nice and moist but transfers the flavours from the fats into them.
