SPICY FISH FILLET W/ LEMON BUTTER SAUCE #ManicMonday



This was actually my daughter's homework for her Home Arts class last week, and she liked it so much and requested for me to make it for her every other week (so it's now in rotation along all her other favorites!) It's inexpensive, quick and easy to make- perfect for a Manic Monday! I use Dory, which is accessible to anybody, and marinate for about 20 minutes before dipping in the batter and frying. The entire process only takes about 30 minutes, including the lemon butter sauce. You can serve this with regular rice, or even in between burger buns as a sandwich. Just add some mayo and veggies!

Ingredients (Marinade)

2 fillets cream dory, divided into 6 (Slice once lengthwise and twice crosswise)
2 pcs. calamansi juice
salt and pepper, to taste
Dash of Liquid Seasoning


(Batter)

1 cup flour
1 cup cold water
2 eggs
salt and pepper, to taste
1 tsp Cayenne Pepper

(Lemon Butter Sauce)

1 stick butter
juice of 1/2 lemon
salt and pepper, to taste
1 tsp. Worcestershire Sauce
Sprig of parsley, chopped

How to:

Marinate Fish for twenty minutes

While fish is marinating, Make lemon butter sauce. Add butter to a sauce pan on low heat and wait until melted. Add lemon juice, salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce and stir. Place in a bowl and top of with chopped parsley. Set aside.

Mix all ingredients for batter and dip fish fillets into the batter.
Fry in hot oil until golden brown.
