Crispy Smelt aka Sha Zui Fish 香脆沙嘴鱼(沙尖)

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. 

Ingredients: 材料

8 Sha Zui Fish (220g) 沙嘴鱼 8条,大概 220克

Tempura flour/ Corn Flour 天妇罗炸粉/玉米粉/粟粉 适量

Cooking Oil 油 适量

Seasoning: 调味料

1/4 tsp Ground Ginger/ Gingen Ginger Powder 姜粉 1/4 小匙

1/2 tsp Garlic Powder 蒜粉 1/2小匙

1/4 tsp Salt 盐 1/4 小匙
