INGREDIENTS
 500 g whole sole
 2 tsp Shaoxing wine
 ¾ tsp salt
 ½ tsp white pepper
 3 tbsp cornstarch
  cup canola oil (160ml)
FOR THE SAUCE
 1 tbsp hot water
 ¼ tsp sugar
 1 ½ tbsp soy sauce
 2 tsp Shaoxing wine
 3 tbsp oil from the oil you used to fry the flounder
 1 scallion (finely julienned)
 1 small handful cilantro (roughly chopped)
1

Pat the fish dry with a paper towel on both sides. Rub Shaoxing wine all over the fish. Salt and pepper the fish and gently massage.

2

Sift the cornstarch before dredging the fish on both sides to get a uniform, light coating.

3

Heat oil over high heat and add the fish in. Cook the fish for at least 5 to 6 minutes. Make sure the side fins, tails and head are fried evenly. Scoop the fish and let it rest.

Next, in a small bowl, mix 2 tablespoons of hot water with sugar, soy sauce and Shaoxing wine. Remove the excess oil and only leaves about 3 tablespoons of oil. Pour the sauce mixture in together and stir it till it comes to a boil. Then turn off the heat.
