Clean the fish with lemon, lime or vinegar. Cut in half or smaller pieces if preferred. Rinse and pat dry, squeezing slightly to remove excess water and set aside in a bowl. In a small bowl, mix ingredients for marinade. Stir in marinade with fish, cover and let marinate for at least 1 - 2 hours.
Remove the fish from marinade and shake excess liquid.
Place flour in shallow plate and heat oil in pan.
Once oil is hot, coat fish pieces in flour and gently set coated fish into hot oil and fry 5 minutes on each side until medium golden brown in color. When the fish is evenly golden all over, remove and drain on paper towel.
In a separate pan, heat olive oil; add shallots, garlic, scallion and let cook for about 1 minute. Add lemon juice or vinegar; season to taste with salt and pepper. Add hot sauce if using. Let mixture gently simmer for 2 – 3 minutes. Serve hot with fried fish.
