    How to make basa fish with orange sauce

    A few years ago, I had tasted this dish at a restaurant and liked it immensely.  I would like to know the recipe of this dish.

    I have tried and started to make sauce first of all and then to fish:

    To make sauce:

        Gently heat 2 cloves minced garlic and 1 tbsp minced ginger in one tbsp butter
        Add 1 tbsp brown sugar and stir well to incorporate.

    To that add

        1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
        1 tbsp soy sauce
        1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (use less if you like your sauce less spicy)
        1 cup orange juice
        pinch of salt to taste

    Bring to a boil and then stir well over medium low heat for app ten minutes until it reduces slightly. Mix one additional tbsp orange juice with one tbsp cornstarch in a separate dish. Add to the pot. Heat and stir until thickened.

    Cover and keep on low until ready to serve.

    Now for the fish!

    I began by making a dredge with:

        1/2 cup all purpose flour
        1/2 tsp good quality salt
        1/2 tsp salt free lemon pepper
        1/2 tsp five spice powder
        1 tsp garlic powder

    In another dish I had one beaten egg, and in yet another I had 2 cups of panko breadcrumbs.

    Assembly line style, I placed the filets into the dredge of flour, lightly dusted them off, and then dipped each in one beaten egg, followed by the panko bread crumbs until they were well coated on both sides.

    Next, heat 1 inch of vegetable oil in large, heavy saucepan over medium heat until a fresh bread cube placed in oil browns in 45 seconds (about 365 degrees Fahrenheit). Place fish a few pieces at a time into the pan and fry until golden brown on each side (about 4-5 minutes per side)

    Because my filets were quite thick, I finished them on a baking rack in a 350 oven for fifteen minutes.

    Serve warm with orange ginger dipping sauce on the side and enjoy!
