The ready made sauce that I used for the fish was a product from Mas Food. It is called Kam Heong Chilli All Purpose Paste. It is made of blended red chilli with dried shrimps, shallots, garlic and lemon grass. I guess I should try the same when I am done with my supply.
I used red snapper, it was about 800gm. You can also use sea bass, tilapia
