How to Make Garlic-Lime Marinated Fried Red Snapper Fingers


  1. Cut fish filets into thing strips. Mix together the garlic, lime juice, nutmeg and 1/2 tsp. of olive oil. Allow fish to marinate for at least 2 hours.
  2. Beat the egg and water in a shallow bowl. Dip the filets in the beaten egg mixture and then coat with the flour. Did fish in the egg mixture again and coat with the cracker crumbs - make sure they are covered well.
  3. Heat the oil in a saute pan and saute the fish quickly. Don't over-crowd the pan and turn down the heat if oil gets too hot - being careful not to burn the fish as the fish strips will cook very quickly.
  4. Garnish the fish fingers with parsley and serve with lime slices and if preferred, tartar sauce.
