My family loves eating fish. We try to eat fish at least once a week. Eating fish once or twice a week may also reduce the risk of stroke, depression, Alzheimer’s disease, and other chronic conditions. Fish is filled with omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins such as D and B2 (riboflavin). Fish is rich in calcium and phosphorus and a great source of minerals, such as iron, zinc, iodine, magnesium, and potassium. The American Heart Association recommends eating fish at least two times per week as part of a healthy diet.


This recipe works for any fish.

I usually buy a whole fish from an asian market near by. They clean and cut the fish for you. But you can also use this recipe for a fresh caught fish like trout.

Pomfret fish has white meat and only the spinal bone. No small bones. It tastes delicious, buttery and flakey. This is one of our favorite fish to fry.


  • Fish
  • Salt
  • Flour
  • Oil for frying.


  1. Once the fish is all cleaned and dried.
  2. Salt inside and outside slightly.
  3. Drench in flour.
  4. Fry for about 8 minutes per side depending on the size of the pieces. The smaller they are the fast they will cook.

Serve right away. We eat just fish, but you can also serve with mashed potatoes or a big green salad.
