Deep fried Crispy fish fillet with creamy sweet corn sauce

Just a quick recipe , my friend asked me to share this one up because she loves it . Give it a try and tell me what you think .

400g fish fillet (fresh or frozen cod fish or catfish)
Oil for deep-frying – sunflower oil , never use olive oil to fry.
Marinades for fish- Salt and ground white pepper to marinades the fish , 1/3 tsp or to taste.

    To make the Sweet Corn Sauce
    2 small cans of sweet corn,
    1 small pack of cream- 300ml.
    cinnamon powder
    ½ cup chicken stock
    Sugar, white pepper and salt to taste or 1/3 tsp each.
    2 tsp corn starch and 3 tsp water to thicken the sauce

    8 tsp plain flour
    1 tsp corn flour
    1/4 cup soda water or beer
    1 tsp Melted butter

Now to cook .

Doing the fish fillets
If you are using frozen fish . 1st you need to Defrost fish fillet. Rinse it and squeeze extra water. Lay the flllets flat on a plate or in the sink , then Place the plate in basin, pour hot water toward the fillet , -hot water from tap or from the kettle - you shall see the meat contracted a bit, Drain any water in the plate (be careful of the hot water ) and do the same thing on the other side . Pat dry the fillet and cut into about 5 cm squares. Marinade them for roughly 10 to 15 minutes.

This hot water step is only to get away the frozen fish smell and to make the fillet firmer also it take away the salt if you are using salty cod fish . so if you are using fresh fish from market you can skip this step .

Playing with batter
Mix together all the flours for the batter, then stir in salt, water  add in butter and mix well. Heat oil in deep frier if you have one otherwise you can use a pot or even a frying pan or a wok,  over medium heat to frying the fillets
When oil is heated, dip the fish fillets into the batter, gently put them into the fryer – what ever you are using …cook the fish when it turns golden yellow,  usually take about a min or 2 ,depends on how thick you cut your fish , Dish up fillets piece by piece.

Now the sauce
Pour 2 cans of corn kernels together with chicken stock, add in salt, cinnamon powder ,sugar and white pepper, then cream , stir it gently .mix well and thicken with corn starch , you can also put frozen peas with it to make the color looks better with some green . once the sauce is ready . pour it over the fish then serve and you are smiling because it taste pretty good .   have fun and enjoy.
