Fishball with Sweet & Sour Sauce

Share to Your Friends!

This is a different take on the simple street food we know as fishballs.  It is usually fried, and then dipped in sauce as it is eaten.  In this instance we cook the fishballs with the sauce.  This results in a more flavourful dish.  Best of all, you avoid double-dipping!

Fishball with Sweet & Sour Sauce Recipe


  • Fishballs, sliced into 2 (the fishballs here look similar to squid balls)
  • sesame seeds
  • sweet and sour sauce
  • cooking oil
  • chilli flakes (optional)

Cooking Instructions:

  1. Heat up some cooking oil on a frying pan, then cook the fishballs, mixing occasionally, until lightly browned.
  2. Toss some sesame seeds and mix for a minute.
  3. Finally, pour in the sweet and sour sauce and mix.  Warning: the sauce will spatter.  Just pour in enough sauce to coat the fishballs.  Toss in some chilli flakes if desired.
  4. Serve immediately.  Great with beer!
