    This was good. I doubled the recipe, however, only used one can of the pineapple but the juice from two cans. The sauce still seemed a little chunky, so I removed a little more than half of the pineapple and whirled it through the food processor and added it back in. I omitted the flour and used corn starch instead as I wanted the sauce to have a more glazed look. I also made my own beer batter for the fish. Everyone enjoyed this very much. Thanks Anna!  -  10 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Was a little leary about sweet and sour fish but this recipe sounded good so i tried it.My family loved it.Not to sweet so it was good with the fish.I used basa fillets which are very bland and the soya sauce made it taste great.Will do this one again.  -  24 Feb 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Ecellent recipe. I was looking for something different than the same chicken, pork or shrimp sweet sour. It was very easy to make. We love this and will be repeated again! Thanks for the recipe.  -  22 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
