Fish is so good for you. It is low in fat, high in protein, and most importantly, high in omega 3 fatty acids. Fish is also low in cholesterol, and this can help to reduce the incidence of heart disease. Health experts say that it is important to eat fish a couple of times a week.
You can’t go past this Middle Eastern Fish for flavour. A wonderful combination of intense, tasty spices with a fresh tomato salsa, inspired by Middle Eastern cuisine. This is a delicious mix of earthy flavours complemented and softened by the fish.
Middle eastern FISH
Place the flour on a dinner plate, whisk the eggs in a wide, shallow bowl (with a dash of water) and place breadcrumb mix on another dinner plate. Coat each piece of fish in flour, dip in egg wash and then the breadcrumb mix. Press down gently to make sure the crumbs stick.
To make a salsa, combine tomato, onion and coriander leaves. Toss together with the juice of half a lime.
Place 1–2 tablespoons of coconut oil in a large frying pan over medium–high heat. Cook fish for 5 minutes on each side or until the crust is crisp and the fish is cooked through.
Serve topped with the salsa and remaining lime cut into wedges.
