A Dauce Egre (Sweet and Sour Fish)Submitted by: WEYRCAT
IntroductionSalmon in a sweet and sour sauce Salmon in a sweet and sour sauce
* Fresh fish, either whole or in fillets (see note below), enough to feed 3-4 people
* olive oil
* 2 cups red wine vinegar
* 1/3 cup sugar (approx.)
* 1 medium sized onion, minced
* 1/2 tsp. each mace & cloves (If you can't find mace, use cinnamon)
* 1 tsp. ground cubeb or black pepper
This is a VERY STRONG sauce.
Poach the fish until just done; remove from water and allow to drain well. In a sauce pan, combine the red wine vinegar, sugar, onions & spices. Taste for sweetness and flavor and adjust accordingly - you are making a sweet and sour sauce, so try to attain a proper balance between vinegar & sugar. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium. Continue cooking until the onions are thoroughly soft. In a frying pan, heat a little olive oil. Fry the fish on both sides in the hot oil until a crispy light brown. Remove from the oil and drain. Place the fish in a serving platter and ladle the sauce on top.
The fish needs to be fresh and either whole (but cleaned & gutted), in fillets, or in "steaks."
Haddock will almost certainly be easier for most to people to find than "luces or tenches," but feel free to use any fish available to you.
