Although i am happy that i get to see my siblings, relatives especially cousins who i seldom see when i was staying in Malaysia, and friends but it is so sad to see my mom, who is 84 and not well. She is in the hospital with tubes and drips, all attached to her and i know she is in good care. My mom has gone through alot bringing up 7 children and she has never requested or demanded anything from her children. Even now, in this situation, she will try to visit the restroom without asking for help. When we were young, mom had to feed us with limited resources and frying fish and just sprinkling on soya sauce was the staple.
Fish - cleaned and rub with salt
Oil for shallow frying
Heat wok/skillet (if it is teflon coated - do not heat), add oil and when oil is shimmering, slowly lower fish into oil. Fry until brown before flipping over to brown the other side. If fish should resist to dislodge, sprinkle a little salt oil into the oil and this will help. Fish getting stuck is due to putting in the fry before the oil is hot enough. Use medium heat to fry fish if the fish is big and thick.
When fish is browned on both sides, remove to serving plate and sprinkle a tablespoon or two of soya sauce.
Serve warm or room temperature with white rice.
