Crispy fried snapper serve with Indonesian sambal Terasi

Fried fish is always paying an extra treatment to our lunch and it’s more attractive if it goes together with my Indonesian style sambal terasi.
Picked up a medium size snapper in the local fresh market yesterday was totally unplanned as sale was going on that day. They were nicely array as the peddler expected all the fish are sold out, seeing as the rains have not stopped downpours from the skies.

what a comic story, after I got it on sale then
I have to crispy-fried
poor fellow..
Seems pretty out-standing if I twist to a luscious steam fish with gingery aromatic and sprinkle with sesame oil, it was my plan! Since we both craved for an Indonesian sambal go along with it unfortunately the plan other wise changed.

“Crispy fried those beggars then dip it with the famous Indonesian sambal terasi, ha ha…” it would be brilliant idea whichever fulfilled our hunger-craved.

**although not to worry since we don’t care presented a whole snapper freak out on our dining table, had it, even as the bones are pretty irritated, ha!

The oil should cover half of the fish-it would sufficient to make the fish crisp enough.
