This recipe of battered fish is surprisingly easy. Any kind of fish – be it a fried, stewed or salted one – is way more healthier than, say, red meat or poultry. So why not to vary your diet with tasty and so simple dish as battered fish!
- 1 kg whitefish (or any other low-fat fish) fillet,
- 2 chicken eggs,
- 1 glass of flour,
- Green onion bunch – 50 gr,
- 3-4 tbs sour cream,
- Turmeric, salt, black pepper, a pinch of white sugar
Cooking time: 20mins
- Spray unfrozen fish fillet with olive oil and set it aside while making a soft dough. You’d better use fillet of whitefish, also it can be tilapia or any kind of fish, though it is better to avoid oily kinds of fish, like salmon, not to make a dish too fatty.
- In a bowl place flour, pour a mixture of eggs and sour cream into a flour, mix it thoroughly to make a smooth batter. Add chopped bunch onion and spices. Your batter should be the consistency of double cream, not too liquid to dripple down from a fillet.
- Slice fish into pieces, each about 2 cm thick. Salt pieces of fish and wait for couple of minutes for salt to be adsorbed by the fillet, before dipping pieces into batter. You can also mince a fish fillet and mix it with dough, instead of frying a whole piece of fillet.
- Pre-heat a frying pan with three spoons of frying oil for a few minutes. Dip the pieces into batter, then put on a frying pan and cook until golden brown on one side, then turn and cook until the fish is browned from the other side.
That’s it! So simple and delicious!
