Making fried fish at home is a relatively easy process. Here’s a simple recipe to follow:
4-6 fish fillets (such as cod, haddock, or tilapia)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
1 cup milk
Vegetable oil (for frying)
Fry Fish Recipe in English
In a bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, paprika, and cayenne pepper (if using).
In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk and eggs.
Heat 1-2 inches of vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Dip each fish fillet into the milk and egg mixture, then dredge it in the flour mixture, making sure it’s fully coated.
Once the oil is hot, carefully place the coated fish fillets into the skillet. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden brown and crispy.
Use a slotted spoon or tongs to remove the fish from the skillet and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.
Serve immediately with lemon wedges, tartar sauce, or your favorite dipping sauce.
Enjoy your homemade fried fish!
