    大黄鱼 1条(约750克) 1 seawater fish (yellow croacker) (about 750 grams or 1065lb)
    番茄酱 150克 150 grams (8tbsp) tomato sauce
     500克(实耗100克) 500 grams (2 cups) cooking oil (only 100 grams or 8tbsp to be actually consumed)
    白 50克 grams (3tbsp) white vinegar
     150克 150 (11.5tbsp) grams sugar
     6克 6 grams (1tsp) salt
     茸2克 2 grams (0.07oz) minced garlic
    味精 2克 2 grams (1/2tsp) MSG
    清汤 100克 100 grams (6tbsp) water
    淀粉 150克 150 grams (3/4 cup) dry cornstarch
    湿淀粉 50克 50 grams (2.7tbsp) mixture of cornstarch and water
    料酒 25克 25 grams (5tsp) cooking wine
Clean the fish and on each side make four horizontal cuts. Marinate the fish with 4 grams (2/3tsp) of salt and the cooking wine.
Dust the fish with dry cornstarch on both sides and then shake off the unnecessary cornstarch that does not stick to the fish.
Heat the oil until about 180-200°C (255-390°F). Put in the fish to deep-dry and then take it out when it is golden brown in color.
 Leave 10 grams (2tsp) of oil in the wok and fry the minced garlic until it releases its aromatic smell. Add the tomato sauce, sugar, 2 grams (1/3tsp) of salt, MSG, water and vinegar. Put in the cornstarch-water mixture to thicken the sauce. Now place the fish on a plate to serve.
