Default Balinese Fried Fish Recipe

This is really good with catfish nuggets! Sweet, spicy and slightly salty...
I serve it over Jasmine rice.

1 1/2 pound firm white fish fillets or nuggets
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Oil, for shallow frying
4 shallots, finely sliced lengthways
1 inch piece lemon grass (white part), finely chopped
2 red chilies, finely chopped (I like more!)
2 cm (3/4 cm) piece fresh ginger, grated
1/2 teaspoon shrimp paste
1/2 cup (125 ml) water
2 tablespoons kecap manis (Indonesian soy sauce, thicker, sweeter)
1 tablespoon grated palm sugar or soft brown sugar
2 teaspoons lime juice
3 spring onions, fine chopped

Preheat the oven to warm. Cut the fish into bite-sized pieces; sprinkle with the salt and pepper. In a deep frying pan, heat about 3/4 an inch of oil to about 375 degrees. Add the fish 3 or 4 pieces at a time, and fry over moderately high heat, turning the pieces over, until they are a light golden brown. Drain the fish on paper towels and place in the oven to keep warm.

In a small pan, heat 2 tablespoons of the fish frying oil; add the shallots, lemon grass, chili, ginger and shrimp paste and cook for 3 minutes over low heat, stirring occasionally. Add the water, kecap manis and sugar, and stir until the sauce boils and thickens. Stir in the lime juice and spring onion. Drizzle the sauce over the fish and serve immediately.
