F2: Sweet and Sour Fish

Welcome again to Friday's Feast1. Today I'll be sharing one of my mother's recipies.

Participants in this weeks Feast are as follows:

One of the first recipes I asked my mother for was one for Sweet and Sour Fish. I remember calling her from a friends house while I was making it to make sure I had it correct. This is one of those recipes that is real easy to make and does not require a lot of real cooking. Making the sauce is one that you may have to adjust since I don't have exact measurements.

With inspirations from Mom

Sweet and Sour Fish:
1 box of Battered Fish (usually Cod).
1/2 t Corn Starch
1/4 C Water
1/4 C Sugar
1 Clove Garlic
1 Lemon
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°.
    or follow the recipe on the box.
  2. Place the fish in the oven and bake for the amount of time indicated on the box.
  3. In a small bowl, mix the corn starch and water together to make a slurry.
  4. In a frying pan or saucier pan, add the slurry and sugar.
  5. Juice the lemon into a small bowl.
  6. Crush the garlic.
  7. Add the garlic and lemon juice to the pan.
  8. Heat all over medium heat stirring as you go.
  9. Once thickened, remove the pan from the heat.
  10. Serve with the sauce on top of the fish, or on the side.
  11. Enjoy.

This months theme is Moms and cooking. One of the things we all have in common is that we have a mom. Many of us even have fond memories of our mothers and even memories of her cooking or cooking with her. So what I'm looking for is anything that includes your mother and food.

If you don't want to disappoint your mother, be sure to leave a comment and include the URL so I can include you in an upcoming feast. Don't think that you have to come up with a post right away either. If you have already posted on this topic in the past— your links are always welcome.

If you want to join in on the feast— be sure to leave a comment and include the URL to your post so I and others can know of your contribution. Also, if you want to see a particular topic— feel free to suggest it as well (I'm always looking for new inspirations).

I love cod and this sounds very interesting. I'll let you know if I adjust the slurry ingredients, but they sound great. I love the topic this month.
