Sweet and chilli flavored food is always welcomed on fests and occasions. For many of us, appetizers are the favorite part of the Christmas feast. Isn’t it? And on top of that tangy-spicy appetizer is something you can’t resist. So, I decided to prepare tangy fish. Yummzz! Hope you liked my recipe, grilled fish (cod), it is Cristiano Ronaldo’s all time fav. I am very fond of varieties of fish especially pomfret as it is rich in vitamin A, vitamin B3 and vitamin E. It also helps in fighting wrinkles and skin redness. It adds moisture to your skin.
Soy sauce is an awesome ingredient to flavor recipes. It’s the most common in Asian cuisine. Most dishes don’t specify the type of soy sauce that we use, but they vary wildly as per flavor, texture and appearance. I have used a strong one here to imbibe the Asian flavors. I have used homemade green chilli sauce here to add-on extra spice to the recipe. Tomato Sauce that is a bit sweet is recommended.

1 cubed Capsicum,
1 teaspoon Honey,
3 tablespoons Flour,
Olive Oil for deep frying,
