I love this Chunky Fried Fish! At our house we normally put the effort into the side dishes and the salads, because we usually fry a piece of meat, fish or chicken. In the summertime staying in Spain we do the same using a Weber gas barbecue. That’s why I love to figure out a new favourite food like I did with these chunky pieces of fish.
I can be very fickle when I am visiting the fishmonger. I don’t know what to buy. This time I bought a salmon fillet and a haddock fillet. Salmon is a great source of both omega 3 and vitamin D, and it is fat! Mackerel would do fine as well because of the high fat. It could have been hake or cod as well. Unfornately I only fancy mackerel when cold and smoked.
For this dish I just fried the chunky pieces in flavourless coconut oil and had the cabbalicious cabbage as a side. So easy! Recipe below.
How to prepare the chunky fried fish
400 g fillets of at least two different kinds of fish, salmon is good due to the fat!
Panko and/or Pofiber which serves as breadcrumbs
Coconut oil for frying
Cut the fish into even-sized pieces like 2 x 2 inches, and toss them in the Panko/Pofiber mix.
Heat up a frying pan with 5-6 tablespoons of flavourless coconut oil
When the coconut oil is very hot, put the fish in the oil and fry for 2-3 minutes.
Turn the pieces around when they got a nice colour
Season with sea salt and freshly ground pepper
Drizzle with chopped fresh coriander and lemon juice
We had the Cabbalicious Cabbage and a watercress salad as well. You could also have the grilled vegetables and especially the mayonnaise would be fantastic if your choice of fish was the less fat ones. Enjoy!
