Fried Fish [Tuar Seh]

This type of fish comes in various sizes and of course the prices also varies. The smallest size cost about RM 2.00 per 600 gm [Penang wet market] and the bigger ones the price ranges from RM3.60 to RM 8.00 per 600 gm. I usually will buy the smallest size [as per picture] @ RM 2.00 [about 10 - 12 pieces]. I prefer this size because it can be easily fried till crispy.


600 gm fish [Tuar seh]
salt to taste
oil for frying

  1. Scale fish with a metal spoon. Cut of the head and snip the end and sides with a scissor. Wash and drain in colander. Marinate fish pieces with salt for awhile.
  2. Heat oil in wok on medium heat and fry fish pieces a few at one time to enable fish pieces to be firm [does not stick together] and crispy faster and not much oil needed.
  3. Turn over fish pieces only when it is cooked and brown. Flip over to fry the other side till golden and crisp.
  4. Dish out to serve with plain porridge or may be nasi lemak with sambal.

Note: Tuar Seh is the name of the fish in Hokkien dialect. I do not know what it is called in English and if it is available in other areas.
