Upon the requests of my favourite readers I am giving the recipe of battered fish. I had a pike perch. You may take your favourite fish. As for me, I always take the white fish for battering. In my recipe batter is very airy and crispy. What is the secret? Let's see.
- Pike perch fillet – 500 g;
- Egg – 1 pc;
- Very cold sparkling water – ½ glass;
- Flour – 4 full tbsp;
- Salt, spices for fish;
- Oil – ½ glass.
Wash out the fish and dry it well with a paper towel.
Cut the fillet from the skin (if there is some).
Cut the fish into small portion pieces. Sprinkle with salt and spices for fish.
Beat an egg into the bowl and mix up with a fork.
Then pour sparkling water.
Then add flour and a pinch of salt.
Mix up with a fork until the flat mass. The dough will be like sour cream.
Coat the fish in the batter from all sides.
Heat well oil on a frying pan and fry the fish. The heat should be quite intense.
Fry 3-4 minutes from each side until the brown colour.
Then place pieces of fish on a plate with paper towel to let the extra oil drop off.
Serve with the tartar sauce.
