Fried Fish with Potato Sides

This is a great dinner menu meal. It consists of your favorite fish either cat fish, salmon, whiting whatever you prefer coated in spicy bread crumbs deep fried to give it that exotic crunchy taste. With a side dish of potatos, fried in black pepper, oregano, salt, and turmeric topped with your favorite ketchup or sauce's. I prepared this meal over the weekend, and my hubby got a kick out of it. Hope you will too.

Ingredients serves 4-6
prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 20 min

Oil for frying (preferably vegetable oil)
2 pds fish (salmon,catfish cod etc) washed, and cut into pieces long wise
1 tbs salt
1 tbs red chili pepper
1/2 cup vinegar
1 tbs ginger garlic paste
For the Coating
1 cup bread crumbs
1 cup white all purpose flour
1 tbs salt
1 tbs chili pepper
1 tbs turmeric
For the fried potato sides
4 potato's
1 tbs oregano
1 tbs black pepper
1 tbs salt
2 tbs oil
1/4 (water so they don't stick)

Add wash, and cut pieces of fish to a bowl, and add vinegar, salt, pepper, ginger garlic paste
Mix well with hands so spices get all around the fish, and sit aside in refrigerator for 25-30 min
Heat oil in pan on med flame. Start coating fish
Add bread crumbs, and flour in a bowl add salt,pepper, and turmeric mix well
Start dipping the fish one at a time in the coating, then place in the pan with oil and fry until fish becomes nice and golden brown
Place on cookie sheet or napkin to absorb access oil.

In a pan add oil
Add cut potatoes,black pepper, oregano, turmeric, salt, and  fry keep mixing for about 2-3 min
Cover and cook on low flame for 10 min
Now add  a little bit of water to avoid sticking and cover again and cook for another 5-10 min.
Once potatoes are nice and soft remove from heat.
Serve with tartar sauce, and ketchup
And Enjoy your yummy meal...
Tip: To give your fish an even more crunchier taste once you dip it in the bread crumb coating, put it in a strainer, and sprinkle with some water, so the fish get wet, and start dipping in the coating again, this will give you a double dip fish coating, which is way more crunchier.
