Coley’s Tips for Shallow Frying
For snack-able bites, cut fish into 2-3 inch pieces. You can also shallow fry larger strips or fillets.
Heat the pan on high and use 1/2 – 1 inch of olive oil.
Place the breaded Barramundi pieces gently into the pan, away from your body.
Do not overcrowd the pan!
Bonus tip: keep your hands goop-free when breading the barramundi by using one hand to handle dry ingredients (flour, panko) and the other for the egg wash.
- Pour mayonnaise into a small bowl and mix in lemon zest, lemon juice, capers, dill pickles, minced shallots. Mix in half of the parsley.
- Add remaining parsley to the top for garnish.
