Use a little fish sauce instead of salt.
Chilly powder. Add to taste. :-)
Use corn starch for the batter. I prefer corn starch for frying as it gives you a light crispy coating on the food.
Option- use a pre made fish fry mix from the Vietnamese grocery store.
Clean the fish and dry it with a paper towel.
Mix the chilly powder, fish sauce, pepper and let it sit for 30 min.
Put the fish in a zip-lock bag, add corn starch, and shake well - make sure fish is lightly coated with the corn starch.
Fry the fish in hot oil until it is golden brown and floats to the top.
