Soy bean paste deep fried fish

This is another my own way of cooking fish, use one of the part from the big fish that I bought earlier (deep fried sweet and sour fish). I like fish to cook this way with soy bean paste, and usually I will add some curry leaves to enhance the taste.

looks so succulent..and this is a new recipe totally worth trying.

I do agree that bean paste with fish goes well together especially if it's fried fish. I sometimes use bean paste fried with some garlice and slice chilli and use the marinade to steam fish. Also delicious.
