Fish Fillet

Fish Fillet

Inspired by Ainsley Harriot, I came up with this way to prepare fish. He made it in his food show “meals in minutes”. I usually fry fish with just plain flour, after seeing the show, Ainsley gave a good idea. A different twist on the conventional way of frying fish. He served it with chips, therefore he called it fish and chips. But I had mine with plain rice.

So what’s the twist? I really enjoyed doing this as I watched the chemical reaction of baking soda and lemon!

I am not quite sure of his proportion coz I’m not taking down notes, so I made a wild guess and it worked.

Here’s how:

2 fish fillet
Oil for frying

½ cup plain flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ cup lemon juice
1/3 cup water
Salt and pepper


In a mixing bowl, place flour and baking soda; add water and mix vigorously with a wire whisk. Add lemon juice, salt and pepper. Dip fish fillet into the batter to coat and fry until golden brown.
