Stir-Fried Tom Yum Vegetarian Fish

This is real simple to cook. The vegetarian fish slices can be deep fried or pan fried, if desired. Sugar and light soy sauce are omitted unless you want to add these. Squeeze some lime juice if you prefer it to be a little tangier. Few pineapple cubes or slices of star fruit can be added.

° 1 tablespoon vegetarian tom yum paste
° 50ml water
° ½ fresh red chilli (optional) , finely shredded
