Breaded Fish with Pineapple Chili Sauce

A different style of breaded fish and the sauce as I used to make. On February 18th 2007, I posted Angsio Kakap Merah (literally translate: breaded red snapper with sweet sour sauce) . Two days ago I still had pollack fillets in my freezer, I decided to make breaded fish with a different style of sauce.

Pollock (also known as Pollack) is the common name used either of the two species of marine fish in the Pollachius genus. Both P. pollachius and P. virens are commonly referred to as pollock.
