Easy and Simple Pan fried Tarakihi

Tarakihi is not expensive at the moment and the flesh is as nice as snapper’s in my opinion. For 2 persons, you will need:

400 grams Tarakihi fillets
Salt & Pepper
¼ cup cornmeal
1 teaspoon Paprika
Oil for frying
A knob of butter

Mix cornmeal and paprika together in a deep dish of plastic bag. Season Tarakihi fillets with salt and pepper on both sides. Heat a little bit of oil in a frying pan on medium high heat, dredge the fillets in cornmeal mixture (or shake to coat in plastic bag) and fry until firm– add butter to the pan- fry a bit further and flip. Fry until golden on both sides.

You can have the fish with chips and tartar sauce or potato salad or with lemon butter sauce and boiled potatoes.
