Whole Fried Fish in a Tomato Peanut Butter Sauce

There is just something special about crispy whole fried fish that is soaked in a sauce. It is comfort food on another level. I love having my fried fish in a tomato peanut butter sauce. The sweetness and tanginess from the sauce is nicely soaked up by the marinated and fried fish.
