Pan fried fish

Sharing is caring!

Pan Fried Fish- Grandma Type is a scrumptious way to consume fish, like the grandma utilised to make it. No preservatives, or other weird components. Scrumptious!

Pan Fried Fish- Grandma Style

Grandma Elisabeta, my mother’s mom, was a excellent cook. She loved bringing us collectively about her dining table every Sunday and cook delicious meals for all of us . Her pies have been wonderful.

Her pilaf with chicken was to die for and her sour soups, a extremely conventional Romanian way to cook soups, had been remarkable.

I miss her at times. I wish she would be nonetheless close to to display me her secrets in the kitchen.

This recipe of pan fried fish is, once more, a really effortless and tasty one. Grandma utilised to make fried fish extremely often, especially in the summer, in her tiny back yard summer time kitchen.

Practically nothing fancy in the kitchen, feel me…

I heard numerous folks saying that if they would have a bigger kitchen with plenty of modern day utensils and big ovens, they would be able to make much better meals.

My grandma had a small gas stove with gasoline tanks, and a small table, couple of pots and pans and lots of talent to make a wonderful meal out of straightforward substances.

In my recipe, I utilized cod. Cod, at least in my humble view, has a great texture and doesn’t fall apart like tilapia, for illustration.

Any type of fish would work even though. Aside from the fish, you will require some flour and vegetable oil for frying. That’s it!

Some people might prefer a mixture of flour and corn meal. My grandmother employed that one as well.

I guess it is just a matter of preference and any approaches are fine. The combination of corn meal and flour will make the crust crunchier, the flour will make it smoother.

Each are delicious.


Ahead of you start off frying the fish, make certain it is totally dry. Extra moisture lowers the temperature of the oil. Also, when you put water in hot oil, it generates splashes and you may possibly effortlessly get burns. Oil burns are nasty, so be cautious.

Put together a plate or a bowl with flour. Season the flour with salt and pepper. Be generous. Also, do not use any herbs, they burn up in the oil and change the taste of the fish.

Get pieces of fish and toss them in flour. Make confident the fish is covered completely.

Spot a massive skillet on the stove, on medium heat, and pour vegetable oil in it, about 2 inches deep.

Grandma’s tip for checking if the oil is hot ample for frying:

If you insert a wooden spoon into the oil, the oil will bubble all around the stick when it’s ready for frying. If you have a thermometer, the temperature need to be in between 300-325F, and you should aim to keep it that way.

When the oil is sizzling, gently place coated fish in the skillet and fry for about five minutes on every single side until golden brown.

Don’t crowd the pieces of fish:

Frying in big batches will cause the temperature of the oil to drop as well minimal, resulting in a significantly less crispy (and much less tasty) completed product.

Between batches, hold your oil clean by scooping out any pieces of fish left behind.

Drain the fried fish on a paper towel-lined plate the paper towels will soak up far more oil than draining the fish on a wire rack.

Serve it with lemon wedges. It goes nicely with French Fries(created from scratch)

Voila! You just created fried fish, my grandma’s type.

I hope you enjoy it the very same way I enjoyed it while developing up!

It’s so effortless to purchase tomatillo salsa verde in a jar, but it’s SO significantly better when you make it fresh yourself. This is my go-to green salsa verde recipe. It’s fresh, it’s tangy, and a minor bit spicy. I preserve it on hand to jazz up any meal from breakfast, lunch, dinner and a lot more.

  1. Very first, get some tomatillos! I normally uncover them near the jalapeo peppers at the grocery retailer. They’re like little green tomatoes wrapped in paper husks. In the summertime, I get them at the farmers market place.

  2. Eliminate the husks from the tomatillos and rinse below amazing water to eliminate the stickiness.

  3. Roast the tomatillos, onion, garlic, and jalapeo for 15 minutes or right up until the tomatillos are soft.

  4. Pulse in a meals processor with one to 2 tablespoons water.

  5. Season to taste & serve!

Alternatively, you can char the tomatillos every little thing on the grill. I like to use this grill pan on the grill for veggies.

Aloo gobi (potatoes & cauliflower) is a popular Indian dish in which potatoes and cauliflower are cooked with onions, tomatoes and spices. This dish can be manufactured in several methods, you can make it with only onions or only tomatoes or use no onion-tomato at all. I also make it in diverse approaches dependent on what substances I have on hand, the aloo gobi recipe that I am sharing today is one particular of my preferred versions.

1 common issue with aloo gobi is that when you cook it, the cauliflower becomes actually soggy and you don’t want that. You want the veggies to be cooked and tender but not soggy, that kind of spoils the taste and texture of this dish. Couple of ideas can assist avoid this:

one. Half cook the cauliflower and potatoes prior to adding it to the onion-tomato masala. You can parboil the potatoes and cauliflower or do what I did – fry them in little oil till they are half cooked. This assists in retaining the form and texture.

2. Don’t cover and cook the cauliflower, you can cover towards the end and cook on minimal flame only.

three. Include salt towards the finish when the dish is practically accomplished.

I have produced problems in the previous the place my cauliflower was all soggy and I didn’t like it at all and that’s how I learnt my lessons. If you follow the over tips, the texture ought to be ideal.

This recipe is vegan just like so many other Indian recipes. I had never heard the term “vegan” until about two many years ago and now when I consider about it, I virtually grew up eating vegan all the time. India has many vegetarian recipes that I grew up eating. We eat basic lentils, rice and veggies daily and nearly all of it is vegan. So enjoy this spicy potatoes and cauliflower vegan recipe from India and I hope you like it.


Heat 2 teaspoon of oil in a pan on medium heat. Include cauliflower florets and fry for 2-3 minutes and then include the sliced potatoes.

Fry on medium-reduced flame for 7-eight minutes until potatoes and cauliflower have some brown spots on them.

Drain on a tissue paper and set aside.

In the same pan heat one.5 teaspoon of oil on medium heat and add cumin seeds and let them crackle.

Add the onions and cook for two minutes or until onion is translucent.

Include the ginger-garlic paste.

Cook for an additional two minutes or till the raw smell of ginger and garlic goes away.

Include the chopped tomatoes.

Cook for 2 minutes until tomatoes are minor soft.

When the tomatoes are little soft, include turmeric powder, red chilli powder, coriander powder and amchur (mango powder). Cover the pan and allow the masala cook for two-three minutes.

Now include the potatoes and cauliflower to it and mix.

Add chopped coriander leaves and give a great combine.

Include some garam masala and cook the potato and cauliflower on medium-low heat for five-6 minutes.

Add salt and cover the pan and cook for extra six-7 minutes on reduced flame or till the potato and cauliflower are tender but not soggy. If you come to feel the masala is sticking, you may add some water. Include 1 tablespoon at a time and only add enough to cook the veggies. I did not add any water in mine.

Garnish with some much more coriander leaves.

Serve aloo gobi with naan, paratha or roti.
