Fried Fish Island Style

In the Pacific islands where I have lived fried fish is often cooked without coating the fish with flour or batter. If the fish is whole, 3 or 4 diagonal cuts are made on each side of the fish. Then the fish is rubbed with salt and sometimes other seasonings before being cooked. I remember that when I first saw fish cooked like this I thought it would not be very good. I was wrong it was very tasty and now I often cook fish like this today.

How to Make Fried Fish Island Style

Step-by-Step

  1. Season fish with salt, pepper, and onion powder then refrigerate overnight or at least for a few hours.
  2. Pour oil in skillet (about midway) and heat to 375°. Be sure your oil is hot before adding the fish. Fry fish for about 5 minutes on each side or until golden brown and crispy.
  3. Remove to a platter lined with paper towels to absorb any excess oil.
  4. Serve with some fresh lemon or lime to squeeze on the fish before eating. Enjoy!
