    UmmBinat's Note:

    This is a tasty fried fish which we like served with rice and Kuwaiti Tomato Sauce (Dukkous Al-Tamat). I have made this with whole deboned light skinned fish as well increasing the coating as needed based on fish size. No need to remove the heads! I always make our version gluten free using double the amount of white rice flour and half the amount sweet rice flour & tapioca starch, though it fries OK I can see it would work better with regular flour.

      Excellent simple fish recipe! I made it gluten free with gluten free flour mix (rice flour and arrowroot starch) and it worked very well. Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe!

      This is excellent. I really like that it makes a thin coating of flavor and isn't heavily battered. This way you taste the fish and spices without adding a lot of unnecessary calories. Used northern pike as it's what I have at the moment. Would certainly make this again with a smile. Made for Ramadan Tag in North Arrica/Middle East forum.
