Crispy Fried Snapper
Aussies love their fish and one of the most popular way of serving it is as simple as fried or grilled, but one thing I always notice is that when it’s fried everyone is fighting to get to those crispy bits, the edges where everything is crunchy and flavourful. Well if that’s what everyone wants I have a solution for you, the secret of frying your fish the crispy way. To make it crispy the way you want it is to score the fish multiple times with a sharp knife, I usually score them 2 centimetres apart up to the bones, rub them with salt make sure it goes through the crevices and deep fry in enough oil.
Ingredients-Crispy fried Snapper
freshly ground black pepper
lots of oil for deep frying
Soy Sauce Dip
4 tablespoon soy sauce
juice from 1 lemon
2 birds eye chillies, chopped with seeds
1 shallot, finely chopped
1- Score snapper multiple times 2 cm apart on each side. Rub with salt and freshly ground black pepper and make sure season between the scores. Set it aside.
2- In a large wok add enough oil for deep frying fish, once oil is very hot drop the fish one at a time. Maintain heat to medium high.
3- Prepare you sauce ingredients my mixing all Soy Sauce Dip ingredients.
4- Deep fry until both sides of fish is golden brown in colour. You can also notice that the bones that are visible from the scores turn golden brown; once this is achieved you can now remove your fish from the oil and place it in a dripping pan to remove excess oil.
5-Once cooled down, serve with dipping sauce.
