When the man comes home with fresh fish, this is my favourite way of cooking it! If you’re not big on fishing yourself, a quick trip to the fish market will set you up for a delicious meal of shallow fried fish with a stack of good oils!
- 1 whole pan-sized snapper (or bream, or any fish for that matter)
- 1/3 cup coconut flour
- 1/4 cup almond flour
- animal fat or coconut oil
- salt & pepper to taste
Wash the fish and pat dry. Cut in half.
Combine coconut and almond flour with seasoning in a plastic bag. Add fish and shake to coat in flour entirely.
Heat pan with enough fat/oil to cover the entire pan to a depth of 3-4mm. The fat/oil needs to be very hot to seal the fish properly.
Shallow fry fish until crispy and golden on both sides.
Serve for example on a bed of cauliflower rice topped with red curry sauce. Garnish with mint & coriander.
This same cooking method works a treat with kingfish as well.
