I was in Australia for about a year and you would see Fish and chips shop in just about in every street of the suburbs. It is a very popular take away dish and is normally batter fried. In India, the crumb fried version of fish is quite popular, especially in Kerala. The Captain got back home yesterday after his sail and his first request to what all he would like to try this time by his "cooking obsessed wife" was Crumb Fried Fish with Tartar Sauce. Wonder from where he suddenly got this craving from but i was only more than pleased to grant his food request. He normally is not fond of fish so i jumped at the opportunity to make him this.
You will need:
Sear Fish Fillets - 500 gms
Pepper Powder - 2 tsp
Salt to taste
Vinegar - 2 tsp
Plain Flour - 4 Tbsp
Water - Just enough to make a paste
Original Flavour Cornflakes Crushed - 1 cup approx
Oil- for shallow frying
Lemon - For Garnish
Marinate the cleaned fish fillets in the paste made of pepper,salt and vinegar.
Keep it aside for atleast 2 hours.
Make a smooth paste with flour and water.
Heat a flat pan with just enough oil to shallow fry it.
Coat the marinated fish in the flour batter and then in the cornflakes mixture.
Fry the fish in the hot oil until its golden brown on both sides.
Just before serving, sprinkle lemon juice on the fried fish and serve hot with Tartar sauce.
