Seeing I stocked two cans of pineapples last time for my sweet and sour pork and have some remaining capsicum sitting idly in the fridge, I thought I’d be resourceful and make use of the other can by experimenting with air-fried sweet and sour fish this time. Batter the hoki fillets up with bread crumbs, stick it in the fryer for 10 minutes at 180 degrees celsius, then mix it in with the sweet and sour sauce. Simple.
- Slice of hoki fillet (large palm size) cut into 1-2 inch cubes
- 1 small can pineapples in syrup
- 1/2 red and 1/2 yellow capsicum, sliced into cubes
- 1/3 cup bread crumbs
- 1 shallot, wedged
- 1/3 cup ketchup
- 1/6 cup apple cider sauce
- 1 tablespoon of sugar
1) Cut capsicum and shallot into wedges.
2) Wash and pat dry fish fillet. Cut fish into slices.
3) Rub white pepper and salt over fish. Batter fish with bread crumbs mixed in with 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Stick in air fryer for 10 minutes at 180 degrees celsius.
4) Heat saucepan on medium heat. Add oil, capsicum and shallots. Fry until lightly brown.
5) Make sauce. Pour in apple cider vinegar, ketchup and sugar in saucepan. Heat until boiling. Pour mixture into saucepan with the vegetables and stir together.
6) Cover fish with the sauce. Transfer to plate and serve.
