ENO Fried Fish Fillet

Yes,you hear it right!!. ENO. My mom taught me to use ENO as salt to seasoning the fish fillet.It's taste more crunchy and the fish look much better after frying.Eno contains Sodium Bicarbonate and Citric Acid.If you don't have ENO,don't worried ,just use baking powder as substitution.Hence baking powder indeed rise more than Eno. Ingredients;

3 pc fish fillet (cut small)

1/2 tsp Eno

1/2 tsp black pepper

1/2 tsp sugar

1 cup flour

1/2 cup corn flour

1 egg for coating

1/4 cup milk for coating

2 cup oil for frying


1:Heat oil in a fryer at 350F or at high heat.Seasoning fish fillet with Eno ,sugar,black pepper for 10 minutes.
2:Prepare all dry flour in a flat tray or plate,sprinkle some ENO into it.Prepare egg,whisk with milk in another bowl.Coat fish fillet in dry flour and then coat with egg wash .Repeat the same procedure twice.
3:Reduce the heat to medium and add in the coated fillet.Fry the fillet until golden brown.Serve warm with Tartar sauce .

Mishu love this fried fish,so does Eliot.Usually the regular fried fish will get soggy after sitting for an hour but not this ENO fried Fish!!.It's a ideal meal for party or snack especially for children.
