Food Discovery : Deep Fried Fish in Three-Flavoured Sauce (aka Three Taste Sauce)

TheThree-Flavoured Sauce Fish, commonly referred to as Ikan Masak Tiga Rasa  in Malaysia, is a delicious Thai dish that is laden in a rich sauce of sweet, sour and spicy - the three flavours that gave rise to its name.

You can order this dish at local stalls offering Thai/Malay cuisine. Here's one I tried at Selera Sri Delima, a restaurant located right behind Kepong Brem Mall.

Three-Flavoured Sauce Fish - Selera Sri Delima

The Basics Of Cooking This Dish
A piece of fish, coated in corn flour and fried crisp.

The recipe for the sauce involves a variety of chopped ingredients, usually - garlic, onion, chili, tomatoes, pineapple and coriander. It is then usually cooked with fish sauce, tamarind juice and a sweet-tasting element such as sweet Thai chili sauce, palm sugar or brown sugar.

This sauce is then poured over the fried fish.

I've never tried making this dish yet but it's just a matter of time before I do. I cannot resist such lively presentation of food!

If you've never eaten this before, I'd urge you to try. Its robust taste will make you crave for more....unless you don't prefer strong flavours of course.
