Sweet and Sour Fish

The healthier way to prepare the all-time favorite Sweet and Sour Fish - baked and not fried - in order to cut down the amount of oil used.

I use oven-ready breaded fish fillets for this dish. The results are as good as deep-fried fish, without the fat calories. Popping the fish in the oven is also easier and less messy than preparing the deep fryer!

Sweet Sour FishIngredients:

  • 2 Fillets of Breaded White Fish for baking (eg Plaice, Cod, Whiting)
  • 1 Brown Onion, sliced thinly
  • 2 Tbsp Tomato Ketchup*
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce*
  • 1 tsp Light Soy Sauce*
  • 2 Tbsp Sugar
  • 100ml Water
  • 1 tsp Cornflour mixed with 1 Tbsp Water


  1. Bake fish according to package instructions.
  2. Heat a little oil in a saucepan. Stir-fry the onion slices until fragrant and translucent.
  3. Mix the sauce ingredients* together and cook with the onions.
  4. Bring mixture to the boil, add the cornflour mixture and stir to thicken.
  5. Pour over the fish fillets just before serving.
