Recipe Instructions

Put the lemon juice, onion, garlic, ginger, green chillies, coriander

Wash the fish gently and pat dry with absorbent paper. If you are using

frozen fish, defrost thoroughly and then dry as for fresh fish.

Cut the fish into about 1 1/2" pieces. Put a light coating of the spice

paste on all sides of each piece of fish, cover the container and leave to

marinate in a cool place for one hour or overnight in the fridge. Bring

to room temperature before cooking.

Mix the flour with the salt and chilli powder. Dust each piece of fish

lightly with this, then dip in the beaten egg. Shallow fry a single layer

over a medium heat until brown on both sides (2-3 minutes on each side).

Drain on absorbent paper. Alternatively, deep fry the fish until golden

brown and drain on absorbent paper. Serve immediately.
