This is a homey dish, my kind of comfort food that I have been craving for a long time. Miss the day that I lived at my parent's home, always have food ready on the dining table when I'm back from school. The dish that never fail to put a smile on my face, this is it. Mom's version was just salt and pepper, deep fried until so crispy that we could munch off the whole fish. Love to dip this in hot chili sauce. Simply palatable!
Instead of using ground ginger in the marinade,
I used GINGEN ginger powder to enhance the flavour.
