Flour crumbed fish

Ingredients:

  •  50g plain flour
  • 1 tsp dried mixed herbs
  • 1 tsp hot paprika
  • 4 skinless coley fillets
  • 2 tbsp sunflower oil
  • Watercress, washed, to serve

Mix the flour, dried herbs, hot paprika and a little black pepper in a dish.  Dip the coley fillets in the flour mixture, make sure every bit of the fish gets really well coated. Brush off any excess flour then take 2 tablespoons of sunflower oil, pop this into a large frying pan and get it onto a medium heat. You know when it’s ready because you just take a little bit of the flour mixture and just drop that in and if it sizzles straight away that means its ready.Fry for 3 – 4 minutes then flip the fish over and fry again until cooked through – another few minutes. Once it’s ready take it off the heat and pop it onto a bed of watercress.
