Coley’s Tips for Shallow Frying

Step 1
For snack-able bites, cut fish into 2-3 inch pieces. You can also shallow fry larger strips or fillets.

Step 2
Heat the pan on high and use 1/2 – 1 inch of olive oil.

Step 3
Place the breaded Barramundi pieces gently into the pan, away from your body.

Step 4
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.

Sauce Instructions

  1. Pour mayonnaise into a small bowl and mix in lemon zest, lemon juice, capers, dill pickles, minced shallots. Mix in half of the parsley.
  2. Add remaining parsley to the top for garnish.
