When I went back home (Mauritius) last month, I told my mom that I wanted to eat salted fish (poisson sale). I love salty foods and one of my favorite Mauritian food recipes is Rougaille Poisson Sale. I had it at least twice during my stay in home with rotis (indian bread)! LOVED IT!
There was also one other salted fish recipe my mom made, which I never had before. My mom always likes to make up recipes. I particularly love her chocolate cakes, panda cakes, chinese fish with black bean, and oh so many other recipes. Anyway, this salted fish recipe is a sweet and sour one. It’s very easy to make, so if you are in a hurry, you can have it for a quick and easy dinner or lunch dish. Little note I have to point out: there is no need to add salt as we are using salted fish. Otherwise you might end up with an over-salty dish!
