I am confused with the name of this dish. I got the recipe from Vanitha magazine. They have named it Greek fish. I never had Greek food, so don't know if there is any similarity. Somehow I cant bring myself to call it “Greek fish fry”. When I gave it to my husband, he asked me whether its fish fingers, I said I was not sure. I've posted a recipe for fish fingers before and its so different from this. Though there was a confusion with regards to the name, there wasn't any confusion about its taste. It has a unique taste, whether its Greek or Latin.
After all what's in a name :) I thought I would just call it fish fry, after all its fish & its fried too ;)
Here is the recipe…
- 1/2 kg Fish pieces (I cut in finger shapes)
- 1/2 – 1 tbsp Ginger
- 2 Green chili
- 1/2 – 1 tsp Pepper
- 1/2 – 1 tbsp Garlic
- Lemon juice – juice of a half lemon
- 2 tbsp Plain flour
- 1/2 tsp Pepper powder
- 1 Egg
- 3/4 – 1 cup Bread crumbs
- Clean the fish and drain the water. Grind together ginger, green chilli, pepper and garlic, along with lemon juice & salt. Marinate the cleaned fish peices with the ground paste and keep it for 1 hour. Strain together plain flour, salt & pepper powder. Sprinkle the flour mixture over the fish pieces. Dip the fish pieces coated with flour in egg and roll it in bread crumbs. Heat oil in a pan and deep fry the fish pieces till it becomes golden brown or till the fish is cooked. Serve hot with sweet chili sauce.
