This Sweet & Sour Fish (酸甜鱼) is one of our most-requested recipes, probably because children and adults both love this dish. Sweet and sour is a generic term that encompasses many styles of sauce, cuisine and cooking methods. Although it’s commonly used in China, I was surprised to learn that it been used in England since the Middle Ages, and remains popular in Europe as well as in the Americas. There are different methods of preparing the sweet and sour sauce. In China, traditionally the sauces are created from mixing honey or sugar with such white or black vinegar. Other ingredients such as soy sauce and ginger are also used. Unlike our other sweet and sour recipes, Roland has simplified this version of sweet and sour fish so that you’ll find it easier to execute.
