“Adapted from a reader recipe submitted to a Women's magazine . To make this recipe gluten-free suitable- use a gf flour for dusting the fish (my preference is sorghum flour). The suggested fish was Sea Bass, but you can use any fish fillets of your choice.”
4 fish fillets

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wash the fish and pat it dry with absorbent kitchen paper. Squeeze a few drops of lemon or lime juice on to the flesh.
  2. Place the garlic, onion, spring onion, chilli, coriander and seasoning into a small blender and purée to a paste.
  3. Spread the paste over the fish and leave it to marinate for at least 15 minutes.
  4. Heat some oil in a frying pan.
  5. Put some plain flour in a bowl and dip the fish in it.
  6. Place the fish in the hot oil, without overcrowding the pan. Fry the fish on each side until golden brown.
