This sweet and sour fish combines the best of both worlds; the brown sugar fills your sweet tooth and the vinegar, salt and pickling spice hits that sour spot. It’s also super versatile and goes well with salmon, carp or any white fish. Bonus that everything gets cooked together in one pot on the stove giving you more free time and less clean up.   More sweet and sour recipes: Sweet and Sour Onion and Cabbage Stuffed Salami Sweet and Sour Meatballs with Spaghetti Squash Sweet and Sour Chicken

Is it really 45 minutes cooking time? Forty-five minutes seems like a very long time for the fish to poach. Does anyone have any experience with this? Could it be that if I have fewer pieces of fish (the recipe calls for 10-12 pieces), it should cook less?
Thanks

Hi. The recipe is correct – 45 minutes on a low flame… The cook time shouldn’t adjust if you have less fish but you can alway check it after 30 minute of it simmering.

not enough water to cover 10-12 slices of fish
