Jamaican Brown Stew Fish

There's a restaurant near here in South Florida that serves this dish, and they make it soooo good. It has a slightly sweet/tangy flavor that goes really well with the snapper. I decided to try making it myself, but after looking in Recipezaar, I couldn't find the sweet version. I finally found it somewhere else on the web and tweaked it to perfection. Serve with a little salad and rice and peas. For the rice and peas, I recommend recipe # 97745. Hope you like it.

  • Rub salt and pepper all over the fish.
  • Fill a frying pan with about 1 1/2 inches of oil and fry fish on both sides till brown.
  • Remove fish and place in a paper towel lined plate so some of the oil drains. Set aside.

  • Add flour and cook till brown.
  • Add water, soy sauce, ketchup, sweet and sour sauce and vinegar.

  • Add pepper to taste and, if needed, salt.
