Deep Fried Selar Kuning (Yellow Banded Scad) Fish with Tamarind (Assam Jawa) Recipe

The fish above might look a litte burn but they are very tasty. It is normal for fish marinated with sugar and assam jawa (tamarind) to have this dark colour when deep fried.
My kids were getting a little bored with plain fried fish so I decided to marinade these Selar Kuning  fish with assam jawa before frying them.
This fish go along well with nasi lemak (coconut milk rice).

Selar Kuning Fish (Yellow Banded Scad), 10 pcs
Tamrind, 2 table spoons
Sugar, 1 tablespoon
Salt to taste
Oil for deep frying

Marinade the fish with tamarind and salt for around 10 minutes. Heat up wok and put in the vegetable oil. When oil is hot, slowly put in the fish one by one. Deep fry for around 20 minutes under medium heat. Serve with nasi lemak (coconut milk rice) while fish is still hot.

Oooo...I love this! And I love them fried this way - the way the Malays do it. The Chinese here will just rub salt and fry - not nice, all depending on the taste of the fish.

I like this fish the most, deep fried. Err... which taman you say you stay in? I've better start looking for a house next (or in front or behind) to yours. Neighbours help each other, right?
