How to Prepare Yam Fries and Grilled Fish using Symplinatural Recipes.

Wash croaker fish thoroughly with tap water. Don’t forget to remove the scales and clean out the head of the fish.Pat dry with paper towel;  set aside.

Heat up oven at 180 °C

Add tomato, fresh red chilli pepper, onion and garlic in a food processor or blender. Blitz for 30 seconds on medium speed till a not-so-smooth purée is formed. Place content in a mixing bowl, and add all other ingredients. Mix thoroughly with a spoon to combine.

Place croaker fish on a chopping board and make three deep incisions on each side of the fish to allow for easy penetration of the marinade mixture. Generously coat the fish with the marinade on the both sides. Reserve a little marinade for basting.

Place fish on the middle rack of the pre-heated oven. After 20 minutes, baste the fish with the reserve marinade and a tablespoon of olive oil. Leave to grill for another 15-20 minutes.

Heat up 475mL vegetable oil in a frying pan.

In a mixing bowl, add Sympli Yam Fries and salt to taste; mix thoroughly to combine.

Using a cooking tong, gently drop yam fries piece after piece into the hot oil, being careful not to overcrowd the pan. Fry for 5-7 minutes, until crispy.

CAUTION: The oil may bubble and pop out of the fryer. Place only one piece at a time into the hot oil. Fry only moderate amounts of frozen food at a time, making sure to remove freezer burn or any excess ice before cooking. If frozen pieces get stuck together, they should be allowed to defrost slightly and then broken up before inserting into hot oil. DO NOT LEAVE UNATTENDED WHEN FRYING.

Serve Sympli Yam Fries and grilled spicy fish on a platter with sweet chilli sauce or ketchup.
