Sweet and sour preparations are popular in Filipino cuisine. Pork, chicken, seafood, beef and fish are all prepared with regional variations. Sweet and sour fish is often made with a whole fish or breaded and fried. This Filipino inspired dish steams fish in sauce producing a lighter and lower fat meal. Serve this with rice, quinoa or a side of green vegetables.
