I love it when hubby surprises me with food stuffs, yeah, after getting married I’m surprised at the gifts I get excited about. Raw fish! The gift was timely because it had been a while since we had eaten fish. I wanted to prepare something quick that would not require a lot of handling. I had no intentions of posting this recipe and thus I didn’t take proper photos, but after posting a photo of the meal on my facebook page, I thought otherwise.
I eyeballed the ingredients (I didn’t measure), however, I will try and estimate the quantities.
1 fish fillet
3 tablespoons of bread crumbs
2 rosemary twigs, leaves finely chopped
1 tablespoon of dried parsley leaves (optional)
1 tablespoon of fish masala
1/4 teaspoon of black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
It takes barely two minutes to prepare so start by heating your skillet then add the vegetable oil.
As the oil is heating, prepare the fish. In a large shallow bowl mix all the ingredients, well except the fish.
Generously coat the fish with the dry ingredient mixture. Ensure you pat the mixture on, so that it sort of sticks. Do that for both sides.
Finally gently and I mean gently place the fish fillet on the skillet. You can even add the excess mixture on the top side.
Cook for about four minutes or until browned. Gently flip it over and cook the other side. Ensure you don’t break the fish apart. Presentation is key here.
Serve on a large plate and garnish with lemon quarters.
You can serve this with either rice, ugali, potatoes or just eat it as it is like I did. Like I said, I had missed eating fish. Don’t believe me? Check out the last photo 😀
