Crispy Fried Fish

Prep:30 mins Cook:15 mins Total:45 mins Servings:4 Yield:4 Servings


  • 2 haddock fillet (or fish of your choice)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ½ teaspoon cochineal pepper powder+ To prepare the dough:
  • 1 cup self-raising flour
  • 2 tablespoons cornmeal (load in cornmeal for extra crunchy mixture)
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • salt for seasoning
  • 250 ml of bloodless soda or bloodless beer – approx
  • frying oil

Directions :

  • We prepare the fish by marinating it in the spices, cook the lid and the mixture and set aside.
  • Time In a mixing bowl we load the ingredients for the dry mixture. Add salt and whisk together.
  • Make a hollow inside the center by introducing the liquid, use a hand mixer or stir with a fork to form a thick mixture, wait five minutes for the oil to heat up and fry, and when the oil is hot enough, you can start frying.
  • The oil should be specially heated to 190°C, and soak the marinated fish in the mixture for three to four minutes, until soft and cool, or until crispy and golden brown, place on a paper tray, repeat with the last part of the fish.
  • If you’re frying a lot of fish, I recommend heating the oil between each portion of fish, enjoying French fries, potato wedges, or salads, and if you’re like me, dip them in hot sauce.
