PurelyFresh Fresh Seafood + Deep-Fried Golden Pomfret Recipe

singapore purely fresh online supermarket pomfret recipes
Everyone of us loves a good surprise, don't we? So when I ordered a Golden Pomfret from #PurelyFresh, a Singapore Online Grocery Store, and got two instead, I was over the moon!

I used one to cook this Thai-Style Deep-Fried Golden Pomfret ( 泰式香脆金鲳 ), and my family had such an enjoyable meal.

The Thai chilli sauce skating around the fish delights the eyes as our teeth sink into the crispy and crunchy fish meat! Yum!

A sweet handwritten note on my invoice that says, "Today's pomfrets are a bit small, so enjoy 2 instead!" certainly makes my day. Love the smiley face too! Well, that's the kind of service you will get from PurelyFresh, as they always strive to give customers their best.

I am not so much a fan of fish except for Codfish, but my hubby and son love eating fish. I really don't mind cooking it for them since they enjoy it so much. Besides, it comes with a whole list of health benefits.

What I dislike most is gutting fish; hate the bloody and messy scene! I am so happy to know that PurelyFresh does all the dirty jobs for me. All I need to do is type in my request during my shopping, and my fish will be gutted accordingly. Look how nice and clean my fish is! That's one less job for me in the kitchen!

Since I had two Golden Pomfrets, I used the other one for steaming since the fish is fresh from the market. You can get the recipe from my old post at Tasty Steamed Teochew Pomfret In Foil ( 清蒸斗鲳 ).

I wanted to order White / Silver Pomfret( 白鲳 ), but there were only Golden Pomfret ( 金鲳 ) and Black Pomfret ( 黑鲳 ). It is my first time trying the Golden Pomfret actually. Nonetheless, the results turned out satisfactory. Here's our meal:
  • Steamed Golden Pomfret ( 清蒸金鲳 )
  • Cabbage Soup with Jin Hua Ham ( 金華火腿白菜汤 )
  • Crispy Prawn Paste Chicken Wings ( 脆皮虾酱鸡翅 )
  • Deep-Fried Eggplant with Pork Floss ( 肉松茄子 )

The crispy fish was deep-fried to golden-brown, and my family got hooked after the first bite; the plate was emptied in no time! It was the crunchy meat that got us excited, and the chilli sauce brought the dish to a whole new level! It's yummi-licious!

  1. Gosh. You deep fried your pomfret so beautifully. Some more it can stand!!

    I always requested the fishmongers to clean and gut the fishes for me. I ain't good in doing that.

  35. You really made the most of everything from them shirley! My mother loves deep frying seabass at home and then making a sweet and sour sauce to pour over! I'd love to make a fried fish to stand up like that! I've eaten it outside before have never made it at home! Thai chilli sauce never goes wrong with fried food items! YUM.

  36. Whoa, I've never seen anything like this before in my life! You certainly know what you're doing Shirley :)

  37. Lovely recipe and so beautifully presented. Restaurant style! Gutting fish is a job I hate. Usually get them cleaned at the fishmonger's.

  43. The first picture of the golden pomfret almost made me jump outta my seat, but on the bright side, I'm sure it tasted divine. =P

    It makes me miss eating golden pomfret as they have a limited variety of fish here. =/
