This is a very quick and simple way to enjoy fresh fish, my dad always used to cook fish this way when he needed to make a quick dinner.
I call it Baja style, but I am sure this is the way a lot of people cook fish, but I like the idea that this recipe comes from where I am from. Anyway, I learned this recipe from my dad and he was from Baja, so there!
- 500 gr of skin on red fish fillets
- 1/2 cup of all purpose flour
- Salt to taste
- Pinch of black ground pepper
- Pinch of oregano
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- Lemon wedges to serve
Cut the fish in medium pieces. Place the flour on a large plate and mix in the salt, pepper and oregano.
Place the pieces of fish on the flour covering them very well with the flour mixture. Then shake the excess off.
Heat the oil on a large nonstick frying pan and once it is hot, place the fish skin down first and fry for 3 min or so, until the fish is crispy. Make sure it does not burn. Then flip all the pieces to fry the other side and fry for 4 min.
