Recipe - Undercover Cod

Tue May 4 22:12:59 2010

Fried fish with a twist.

My fillets

OK, I lied a bit, I won't be cooking cod, but basa fish; I just couldn't resist the cop/cod wordplay. Besides, for this dish, most fish will do.


Spiced breadcrumbs

  • About 680g of fish fillets
  • 20 table spoons of bread crumbs, spiced
  • 10 table spoons of lemon juice
  • half a table spoon of salt
  • 2 eggs
  • About 100g of butter
  • Two handfuls of white flour


Breadcrumb "cover"

Frying the fish

First of all, if you don't have spiced breadcrumbs, just add spice to taste.

Pour lemon juice onto a plate, add salt and stir until all salt disolves. Add spiced breadcrumbs and the eggs. Mix until the mixture is uniform (yes, it does look a bit gross)

Make sure your fish is fully thawed, it wouldn't hurt to cut it to about the size of a slice of bread (I cut my fillets in half).

Dump fish fillets in flour to ensure complete coverage. Then on one side spread a thin layer of our breadcrumb mixture. This will be a "cover" under which our fish will be :)

Melt all the butter in a frying pan and fry the fish on medium heat until light-golden brown. Fry the non-breadcrumbed side first.

Final Product

That's all there is to it. Serve with a side of your choice. Tonight, I'll have my fish with fried potatoes. I can't say this about all of my recipes, but this fish is delish!
