Fried Fish in Black Sauce

Fish are an excellent source for health. For the most part, fish contain fewer fats than most meats. The fat contained in fish, such as linolenic acid and omega-3 fatty acids, are considered good for the health.   It’s provided protection against heart disease and was also a great food for the brain.  That is why the American Heart Foundation recommended people to eat fish at least twice a week.   Besides, fish are also an excellent source of protein and wide variety of vitamins and minerals that gives great benefits to our body.

For today's recipe, I would like to share one of my family's favorite fish dish.  This recipe is really easy to prepare.  It's won't take you long to get the rich taste and absolutely delicious.
