Fried Fish (Blue Fish)

Do you like fish? I loves fried fish or any type of fish dearly..I miss having fresh sea water and fresh water fish.If you are fish lover I guarantee you,you will love fresh fish just fish out from the water and to your dinner table.You can feel and taste the different between fresh and frozen fish..Years ago I used to fish at the lake in New York Upstate reservoir and beaches at Long Island .Too bad since having my daughter I stop fishing.Maybe when my Mishu is older we might go back to fish again..Well,I bought a big chuck of mackerel at the fish market in the city,thought I can use it to make curry fish but realise it's not mackerel,it's blue fish!! How you prepare blue fish? For me, I coated the fish with some salt and rice flour before pan-fried until crisp and golden brown.This fried fish is suitable pairing with tartar sauce or mayo and lemon!!


2 sliced bluefish
2 tbsp rice flour or all purpose flour
1 tsp sea salt
1/4 cup oil
1 lemon
tartar sauce


1:Heat aluminum skillet or pan with oil at medium heat.Coat fish with salt and flour.When temperature is about 375 F,slowly place the fish on the skillet.
2:Fry fish both side for 5-10 minutes or until golden brown.Remove fried fish from skillet to paper towel to absorb excess oil.
3:Serve fish with warm tartar sauce and lemon.

Rice flour is more suitable to use for frying bcos it's stay crunchy and crispy longer than all purpose flour

Oh yes!! love fired fish!! Thanks for dropping by ☺

Thanks ☺

oh yes!! I also used sambal belacan wt know the one use fresh chili and roast belanca only then mix wt limau kasturi on!! just thinking make me` want to eat now!!

if you worried about your house smoky or smelly after fried fish,use my MIL method..she let her pan hot first then drizzle oil on a pan with fish,then just shove the whole pan in the oven for it to cook.No open air frying or pan fry but oven fried,less smelly and sticky during winter!!
