Salt and Vinegar Crumbed Fish

Salt & Vinegar Chip Crumbed Fish

You need to add a packet of salt and vinegar chips to your shopping list this week so you can make this fish, it is crunchy and super tasty and perfect for fussy fish eaters.

It is a great alternative to traditional bread crumbs as it adds more crunch and flavour to the fish.

A squirt of fresh lemon and you shouldn’t hear any complaints about eating this fish.

A local fisherman told this idea to my hubby and I knew I had to share it with you.

6. Eat a 1 layer of oil in a frypan to a medium high heat. Place the crumbed fish fillet into the oil and cook for 1 minute on each side.  Be careful as the chip crumb does burn easily so don’t cook it in oil that is too hot.

Place into a paper towel to drain off any excess oil.

You know when fish is cooked as it bounces back when you press down on the flesh.

Make a complete meal by adding chips and a salad.
