Notes

  • Please ensure that the fish is totally dry before marinating, else the breadcrumbs will not coat at all.
  • Ensure you let the marinade seep into the fish from both sides.
  • Use a thick bottomed or heavy skillet for frying.
  • Turn the fish only when the fish is cooked on one side.
  • Cook on medium flame once the oil is hot. On a higher flame it'll burn.
  • Be patient. One side of the fish will take about 4 minutes to turn golden.
