Sarawakian Local Delights : Deep Fried River Fish with Sauce

Image may contain: food

River fish is bony and not many people like bony fish.

However to get around the bones of the fish one has to deep fry the whole fish until very crispy,or until "the bones can be crushed by the teeth and eaten as well"!!

This is the way to do the bony river fish, which can be a mengalan, a tengadak or a tilang. A nice sauce made from soy sauce, Al Sauce, tomato sauce with onions and garlic would be nice. Otherwise if served plain, a dipping sauce is good enough.

Enjoy!!
