This BBQ sauce is suitable for any fried fish, chicken or meat. Adding some thinly sliced onions, carrots and cabbage is a good combination of proteins and fibre.
The sauce is savoury sweet and tasty spread over steaming hot rice. Simple yet delicious.
The original recipe uses whole Garoupa fish [about 800 gm] and deep frying it. I just pan fried the fish slices.
Recipe adapted from Yum Yum Magazine No. 60 [slightly modified]
[serves 3-4]
3 pieces Spanish Mackerel blocks 
1 big onion – peeled and thinly shredded
1 small carrot – peeled and shredded
2 tbsp shredded ginger
BBQ Sauce [combine]
3 tbsp tomato sauce
2 tbsp Worchester sauce
1 tbsp each chilli sauce, HP Sauce and sugar
150 -200 ml water
1 tsp cornstarch
  1. Soak shredded onions and carrots in ice cold water for 1-2 minutes. Drain in a colander. Place them on serving platter.
  2. Pan fry fish slices until golden brown and cooked through. Dish up and place over shredded ingredients.
  3. Remove excess oil from pan. Using the same pan, sauté ginger for several seconds or until aromatic.
  4. Pour in the BBQ sauce, bring to a rolling boil for a while, stirring until sauce has thickened.
  5. Pour sauce over fried fish, top with some onions and carrots.
  6. Serve immediately.

I have never tried Mackerel in BBQ sauce, i usually grill them in a dry spiced rub! This looks delicious!

Hi HGourmet Foodie, there are many ways of cooking mackerel slices which I have tried. It can be fried and served with various sauces and in curries too. This BBQ sauce is good for fried fish fillets, chicken or pork. I like the sauce with fresh vegetables, too.

Kimmy, this dish sounds good especially the BBQ sauce. I love the idea of raw onions in the dish. It gives a special kick!

what is HP sauce ?

Kimmy said...

Hi Phong Hong, this sauce is quite versatile and it is suitable for fried meats and chicken too. I like it with lots of fresh salad leaves, onions and carrots.

Kimmy said...

Hi Joyce, this kind of sauce is good spread over rice. Extra tasty.

Hi Lynn, HP sauce is like brown sauce and available at most supermarkets at the sauce section. Since the quantity here is small, you can substitute with Worchester sauce. I tried that before and it is good too.
