  4. Make 4 verticle straight cuts, stopping at the skin layer of the fillet.
  5. Season barramundi with salt and pepper.

  7. Heat sufficient oil in a wok.
  8. Holding the two ends of the fillet, lower the fillet into the oil, forming a "U" shape so that it flowers up. Hold on to the fillet and slowly let go once the shape is fixed.
  9. Deep-fry barramundi till golden brown. Drain and set aside.
  10. Heat oil in a wok and add minced garlic, minced ginger and bell peppers. Stir-fry till fragrant.
  11. Add tomato ketchup, oyster sauce, and lychee syrup. Mix well and season with salt and white pepper.
  12. Once the sauce thickens, add 6 lychees.
  13. Mix well and drizzle over the fried barramundi.
