What to Do:
Cut fish into bite size pieces, deep fry until slightly golden. Boil together sugar and coconut milk until it turns into rich caramel color; add soy sauce, ketchup and about 1 cup of coconut juice.

***Because my vegetarian dishes are prepared with “Buddhist Laws” in mind; besides not using meats and animal products, I do not use garlic, onions, leeks, chives, or any type of alcohol. However, if your main goal in being vegan cooking is to just avoid meats, feel free to add the any of the mentioned above to spice up you dishes.***
