This Sauce is EXTREAMLY HOT, please read recipe and adjust to your Heat Tolerance.

You will also need a Deep Fryer or alternatively you can Shallow Fry

I cook my rice in the microwave whilst I am preparing the Chilli Sauce and my husband cooks the fish in the Deep Fryer at the same time.

If you are cooking this Recipe by yourself I would Deep Fry the Fish once the Chilli Sauce has finished cooking and reheat the Chilli Sauce in the Thermomix 2-3 minutes/90˚C/speed 2
