Easy Lightly Fried Fish - Thyme and Spices - Mediterranean

Recipe by Mivashel
READY IN: 30mins




  • thaw the fish if frozen - rinse it under water and pat dry if you wish.
  • preheat about an inch of oil in a pan.
  • cut the fillets into smaller pieces if you want.
  • crack the egg into a shallow bowl and beat - add a pinch of salt and pepper.
  • prepare the spiced fish fry coating - mix roughly 50:50 flour:spices. I suggest adding a fair amount of salt and pepper, and also chili powder if you like it hot. ANY COMBO OF SPICES WORK, be liberal. MIX UNTIL HOMOGENOUS.
  • dip the fish in egg - let the extra egg drip off (tap against the side of bowl).
  • coat both sides of the egged up fish in the frying coating.
  • carefully (hot oil is dangerous!) fry both sides of the fish in the oil until golden brown on both sides, and the inside of the fish is flaky and white.
  • dry on paper towels lined with a bed of thyme.
  • garnish with lemon wedges and thyme sprigs (optional).
