Chinese New Year Whole Fish With Sweet and Sour Vegetables

Make and share this Chinese New Year Whole Fish With Sweet and Sour Vegetables recipe from enjoyed this! I reduced the sauce too much so just added a cup of water and it was fine (pineapple juice would be good too!) - I plan to use this yummy sauce as THE sweet and sour for use with all meats, tofu and veg! Thank you!We made this last night with a fish my kids caught, and it was wonderful. There wasn't a drop of fish or vegetables left over. We grilled the fish outside on the BBQ instead of in the oven, and I put a whole sprig of rosemany inside the fish, which also gave it a nice flavor.Great combination of broiled whole fish and sweet & sour veggies. I have used gilthead sea bream and the flavours worked very well together. It is simple to made and delcious as Wendy promised it. I follwoed the recipe exactyl, except that I broiled my fish 2 minutes longer on each side until its was done.Thank you for sharing.
