  • Step 1

    Start by cooking the rice according to package instructions, while the rice is cooking move onto the next step.

  • Step 2

    While the rice is cooking, prepare the sweet and sour sauce mixture. In a bowl, combine the sweet & sour sauce with 60 ml of water per person and set aside.

  • Step 3

    In another bowl, lightly coat the chopped Nile perch with corn flour. This will help thicken the sauce later and give the fish a slightly crispy texture when fried.

  • Step 4

    Heat vegetable oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add the coated Nile perch to the pan and fry until golden and cooked through, about 3-4 minutes per side. Remove the fish from the pan and set aside.

  • Step 5

    In the same pan, add a bit more oil if needed, and sauté the red onion, garlic, carrot, and red capsicum for about 2-3 minutes, or until they start to soften. Add the chopped pineapple and cook for an additional minute.

  • Step 6

    Pour the sweet and sour sauce mixture over the vegetables in the pan. Bring to a simmer and let cook for 2-3 minutes, allowing the sauce to thicken slightly.

  • Step 7

    Return the cooked Nile perch to the pan, gently mixing it into the sauce and vegetables. Cook for another 2 minutes to ensure the fish is heated through and coated in the sauce.

  • Step 8

    Serve the sweet and sour fish hot over the cooked rice, garnished with sliced spring onion. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper to taste.
