I simply love it whenever I take the first bite from a fillet and it goes a crispy crunch to that sudden burst of rich flavour of the meat inside. The method to that extra crisp as I discovered is actually due to the coat of biscuit crumbs on the layer of fillet. What an ingenious idea! Normally, one would consider the use of breadcrumbs but I found them to lack in bite and too fine for my tastebuds. So with that in mind, I thought about the experiment of the century when biscuit crumbs come into play.

Want to try? I know it just goes so well with that chicken or fish fillet of yours.

Ingredients

  • 2 square biscuits (preferably cream crackers or butter crackers)
  • 1 fish fillet
  • 1 egg
  • salt
  • ground black pepper
  • 1 lime
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • oil in pan
  1. Marinate fish fillet with a sprinkle of salt and ground pepper. Rub both sides with the cornstarch.
  2. Beat 1 egg in a bowl and pour onto a plate. Afterwhich, crush the biscuits into small, rough pieces. It really depends on the texture you want to achieve.
  3. Take marinated fish fillet, dip in egg.
  4. Next, roll the fillet onto the crumbed biscuits. Repeat steps 3 and 4 another time to ensure an even spread of biscuit crumbs.
  5. In a pan of hot oil, take coated fillet and fry on each side for 2-3 minutes. Ensure that the sides do not burn and it achieves a beautiful golden brown.
  6. Squeeze the lime over the cooked fillet.
  7. Serve hot with fries or rice.

Bon Appetit! Tell me how it turns out!
