1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
2 hot red chillies with seeds finely chopped

1tbsp olive oil
Kikkoman soy sauce to cover
For batter (8 portions)
30ml groundnut oil

To make the sauce mix the sauce ingredients together and use just enough soy sauce to cover them. Allow the flavours to develop by keeping refrigerated for at least 24 hours.
To make the batter whizz the ingredients together in a blender and rest for 30 minutes.
Dredge each fillet in the seasoned flour and then in the batter. Shake off excess and deep-fry in oil (175ºC) for about five minutes until cooked.
