Quick Broccoli and Fish in Sweet and Spicy Sauce : Mouthwatering recipe to please your sweet-spicy tastebuds. Restaurant style but made at the comfort of your home.
This is my super quick recipe when I need a meal ready in 20 minutes and it’s also one of the comfort food recipes, we have grown up eating in Delhi.
I mean whenever you say ‘Chinese food + fish’ in Delhi, your options are either fried fish / chili fish or sweet-spicy fish (aka. Quick Broccoli and Fish in Sweet and Spicy Sauce ) and this particular version is available in India or the neighboring countries.
It’s also a great choice when you end up buying 3 pounds of broccoli and 3 pounds of fish from your local convenience store …. cause you just can’t help but let go those super savers 😉
Yes, that happened to us this week and I realized ‘WHAT‘ exactly I had done, when we were trying to store everything in our already overflowing fridge! So guess what our brunch menu might look like … Bazinga!
Now, I have been making this recipe since I was 17, and no, I’m not telling you how many years it has been until – (Ha Ha) and I can probably cook this even in my sleep.
The beautiful orange color you’re seeing is from the chili-garlic schezwan sauce (recipe here) that I’ve used and the broccoli is lightly sauteed with the mix, once the sauce n fish is ready.
The taste comes from the shallow fried fish which has been marinated in a spicy batter and you can go a notch up or down depending on your spice level. This recipe is a perfect combination of sweet and spicy with delicious flavors.
This is usually served with plain rice or you can do a light stir-fry rice or serve it with any other side like quinoa/noodles and even bread (I’ve had it with baguette once…as I was super lazy to cook anything more than this).
Try this Quick Broccoli and Fish in Sweet and Spicy Sauce soon and kick-start your weekend or weekday meal.
What are your weekend plans? Are you visiting someplace new or just chilling with friends/family at home? I’ve not yet decided but I’m definitely not buying any more products for this week for sure 😉
