Crispy Bites

Fish is an essential part of everyday Bengali cuisine and there are times when you are just so tired of making the same old gravy style dishes. Bhetki is one such fish that is enjoyed in my household both by my husband and surprising also my four yr old son and what better way to cook it but the crispy way.The recipe of "Crumb fried Bhetki" that i have here is super simple and the end result simply superb!!

Ingredients :

Bhetki fillets - 8 -10 pieces
Ground pepper - 1 tbsp
Parsley (chopped or i used the dried version ) - 1 tbsp
Lemon juice - 3 tbsp
Salt - to taste
Ginger paste - 1 tbsp
Egg - 2 nos
Bread crumbs - 1 cup ( I just grind rusks or toasts into a powder)
Refined oil - for frying

Method :

Wash and clean the fish fillets and pat them dry.

Marinate the fillets with lime juice,salt,pepper,parsley,ginger paste.Mix well and keep aside for half an hour.

Beat the eggs in one flat dish, season with salt and pepper.

Spread the bread crumbs on a plate. Dip the marinated bhetki fillets in the egg mixture, roll in the bread crumbs.

Pan fry the fillets on low flame till the fillets gets golden colour on each side.

Serve hot with kashundi ( Bengali version of the mustard sauce ) and fresh salad of cucumber and onions.

This fish will just melt in your mouth - trust me !
