Pla Rad Prik

1 whole fish, 1 lb. cleaned
1 Tablespoon white rice wine
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
4 cups oil for deep frying

3 Tablespoons oil
6 garlic cloves, crushed
1/4 cup sliced green pepper
1/4 cup sliced red bell pepper
1/4 cup sliced onions
1/8 cup cilantro leaves
1/4 cup fish sauce (nam pla)
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 cup sweet basil leaves

Cut three slashes to bone on each side of fish, then sprinkle it with rice wine. Flour fish on all sides

Heat oil to 350' F. and carefully immerse fish in hot oil. Deep fry fish until done (about 6 minutes on each side).

While fish is cooking, heat a skillet over medium heat, add oil and all sauce ingredients except basil. Cook mixture for 5 minutes on medium-high heat. Add basil and mix. Place fish on a serving dish and pour sauce over fish.
