I avoid frying food in my kitchen. I feel it’s a waste of oil and the smell always spreads across our small apartment. But since one of our guest requested to have fried fish to go with the nasi lemak, I decided to break the rule this time. Perhaps I didn’t buy the ideal fish for frying as it turned out a little soft. But other than that, the taste was fine.
2-3 catfish, grouper or mullet fillets
2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp of oil
1. Marinate fish with turmeric powder, salt and lemon juice for 1 hour or more.
2. Heat up the oil in a frying pan or wok at medium heat.
3. Add the fillet and fry till brown.
