Recipe Ingredients for Sweet and Sour Fish

1/4 cup rye or whole-wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
1 pound firm-fleshed white fish, such as catfish or tilapia
4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 medium sweet onion, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced
3/4 cup distilled white vinegar
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons sugar
8 whole black peppercorns
1/4 cup berries (3 whole allspice berries)
1 gram bay leaf (about 1/2 leaf)

Recipe Directions for Sweet and Sour Fish

  1. Combine flour, 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper in a wide shallow bowl or pie pan. Dip fish in the mixture to coat, shaking off the excess.

  2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat; add the fish and cook, in batches if necessary, carefully turning once, until opaque in the center and golden on the outside, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a shallow glass dish large enough to fit the fillets in a single layer. Top with onion slices.

  3. Combine vinegar, water, sugar, peppercorns, allspice berries, bay leaf and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt in a small saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Immediately pour over the fish. Remove the bay leaf. Let marinate for at least 15 minutes at room temperature or cover, refrigerate and marinate for up to 3 days.

  4. Remove the fish and onions from the marinade. Serve warm or chilled.
