Happy Friday Fish Sauce

Thanks to my Catholic upbringing, I’ll always associate
Friday with fish (and guilt, but mostly fish). It was usually a piece of fried
haddock, and as far as sauces go, you only had two choices: tartar or cocktail
sauce

Both go well with crispy, deep-fried seafood, but for more
delicate preparations, may I suggest this lovely Tarragon Walnut Brown Butter Sauce we posted back in 2009. I just love this simple sauce, and it couldn’t
be easier. If you haven’t already, I hope you give it a try soon. Enjoy!

Woman’s Weekly cookery editor Sue McMahon suggests cutting the tendons and trimming the fat from the pork before using it. If you want a hotter sauce, add garlic and chillies

  • 1 onion, peeled and cut into wedges, leaves pulled apart
  • 1 red or green pepper, deseeded and cut into chunks
  • Thumb-sized piece of fresh root ginger, peeled and finely sliced
  • 1 cinnamon stick or 1tsp ground cinnamon
  • 227g can pineapple rings in natural syrup (140g drained weight – reserve the syrup), each ring cut into 8 pieces

  • 1tbsp tomato ketchup
  • 1tbsp vinegar, or more, to taste

To serve:

  • 200g (7oz) dried egg noodles
  • 2 small heads pak choi, leaves separated and large ones chopped

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a large pan and fry the pork for about 5 mins until browned on both sides. Take it out of the pan and set aside.
  2. Add the onion, pepper, ginger and cinnamon to the pan and fry for 5 minutes. Add the pineapple, 3tbsp of the pineapple’s syrup, and the tomatoes, ketchup, vinegar, stock cube and 150ml (¼ pint) water. Bring to the boil, and then simmer for 10 mins to let the sauce thicken.
  3. Put the pork back in the pan and simmer for another 5 mins. Mix the flour, or cornflour, with the rest of the syrup to make a paste, add to the pan and stir until thickened. Add the soy sauce, and more vinegar if needed, to taste.
