Crunchy Fried Siakap With Assam (Sweet and Sour) Sauce - Eastern Crab Restaurant Ampang KL - by Best Restaurant To Eat

Looks can be deceiving. When this dish was served at the dinner table, it did not look very appetizing at all. It was probably because there were not much gravy or sauce that accompanied the fish.

I have eaten siakap mostly the Teochew style steamed version and also steamed assam version but never as a fried version.

Upon tasting the sauce, my perception of the dish has changed. The bell pepper, onion and ladies finger were very crisp (did not over cook) goes very well with the special assam sauce. The fish was crunchy from the outside and the flesh was tender (and most important it does not have the muddy taste of some siakap). Best eaten with plain white rice.
