Two Super-Easy Yet Delicious Fish Recipes – Flour Fried Perch

Fried flour-coated fish fillets may be one of the easiest fish recipes to prepare. Here, we are using Perch, which is a freshwater fish with more than 600 possible species. These brightly colored fish are found in Britain, South Africa, Europe, Asia, Australia, and the Atlantic Seaboard. Perch is a delicate fish which has a sweet and mild taste. It is rich in phosphorous, manganese, selenium and vitamin B12.

Today we have a cook-off: We give you two versions of flour fried Perch. Both versions are super easy and delicious but, which tastes better? Give each a shot to know which you prefer.

Ingredients:

Both recipes take about 15 minutes to make. Serves 4.

Antonio’s Version

• 4 perch fillets
• 1 cup of white flour
• 1/4 cup of vegetable oil
• lemon slices

Ivo’s Version

• 4 perch fillets
• 1 cup white flour
• 1 clove of garlic, quartered
• 1/2 stick of butter
• lemon slices

Instructions:

Put the white flour in a zip-lock bag. Then add the perch fillets and seal the bag. Shake the bag until all the fillets are fully coated with flour. Shake off any excess flour. Set aside.

For Antonio’s fried perch, heat vegetable oil in a frying pan until it’s nice and hot.
Carefully slide the perch fillets into the pan.
Cook on high heat for about 4 to 5 minutes on each side.
Sprinkle salt over the fish right after flipping.
Transfer cooked fillets to a plate.
Serve with lemon slices on the side.

For Ivo’s fried perch, put butter and garlic in the frying pan.
Let the garlic fry in the butter for no more than 1 minute. You are only infusing the butter with garlic flavor.
Slide the perch fillets into the pan and cook over high heat for about 4 to 5 minutes on each side.
Remove the garlic from the pan after flipping the fillets to prevent burning and giving a bitter taste to your fish.
Transfer fillets to a plate and season with salt.
Serve with lemon slices on the side. Some may want to squeeze lemon on the fish before eating.

Ideas And Tips:

• Butter has a low smoking point thus burns quickly on high heat. White fish is the best choice for frying in butter as it is quick-cooking. It is also not very expensive. Popular kinds are tilapia, cod, bass, grouper, haddock, catfish, and snapper. You may use whatever is available in your local market.

• You may also season your fish with fresh ground black pepper or any of your favorite spices.

• To complete your meal, pair your fish with a healthy side dish.
