Today I’m sharing with you, one of my favorite dishes. Pescado Frito, this is so simple yet so delicious.  A whole Tilapia, fried to perfection, packed with a lot of flavor, and crisp on the outside and deliciously tender in the inside. Enjoy


Ingredients:
  • 3-4 whole  tilapias
  • 1 tbsp Crushed Red Pepper
  • 1 Tbsp Lemon Pepper seasoning
  • 1 Tbsp Garlic Salt seasoning 
  • 2-3 limes
  • +Canola Oil or Vegetable Oil to Fry 



Rinse the fish with cold water and pat it dry with paper towels

Grab a knife and make some cut along each side of the fish, you will make about 3 cuts on each side, you want them to be about three quarters of an inch deep; deep enough to season the flesh but without cutting the fish completely, this will allow all the seasonings to get inside the flesh of the fish as well

Season the fish the the garlic salt, the lemon pepper and the crushed red pepper, make sure to season well on all sides and also inside the cuts that you made on each fish. Once the fish is well seasoned, now squish the lime juice all over the fish, on both sides as well. And let it marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.

After 30 minutes, preheat plenty of vegetable oil or canola oil, to a temperature of 350ºF, fry the fish for about three to five minutes on each side.

My fish were about 350 grams each, so I fried them for 3 minutes on the first side, then flip it around and continue to fry it on the second side for another 3 more minutes. (if your fish is bigger, it might take about 5 minutes on each side.)

Once the fish is well cooked, remove it from the oil, drain it on paper towels, and continue to fry the rest of the fish until you are done.

Serve with a simple salad and some white rice! Enjoy!
