Ingredients Nutrition


  1. First prepare the fish dip sauce. Bring to a boil in a saucepan the water, sugar, and vinegar then let the mixture cool down.
  2. Blend together the chopped garlic, chopped chili pepper, and the fish sauce, then add the lime juice.
  3. Combine both mixtures and blend well.
  4. This gives about 100 ml of the sauce which will keep for about 3 days.
  5. Now prepare the fish.
  6. Sauté the fish fillets in the peanut oil over medium-low heat, about 8-10 minutes on each side. Season with salt & pepper.
  7. Peel the mango and slice it up into thin slices. Dice the apples into julienne strips. Place these in a deep dish and pour the fish dip sauce over.
  8. Place the cooked flounder fillets on top and serve at once.
