Recipe: great tasting crispy basa fish!

Very good new dish i created!

I used slightly over 1lbs of basa fillet, but polocks would be cheaper and thinner. I haven't tried that yet though.

Bowl #1 - 2 lemons, 3 crushed garlic, some salt, some pepper
Bowl #2 - some olive oil, maybe 2 Chinese soup spoon worth
Bowl #3 - Flower
Bowl #4 - 2 Beaten eggs
Bowl #5 - bread crumbs

preheat over to 450F

1. marinate fish fillet in bowl#1 for 10-15 minutes for good taste,
2. put fish in bowl#2 to soak up some olive oil,
3. put fish in bowl#3 then #4, then #5 for the batter coating.
4. sprinkle some salt and pepper for more taste.
5. put fishes on baking tray with lifted grill so the batter doesn't
stick to the tray as much.
6. bake for 20 minutes.
7. take it out and let it cool off for 10 minutes
8. eat the fish!


done!

Sounds good, looks delicious!

But what is basa fish? I've never heard of it. Is it like any other kind of fish? Or did you mean bass?

Thanks!

basa

Hi!

basa fish is actually a vietnamese cat fish. It's quite good and does not stink when it's raw, unlike polocks which is really fishy smelling!

I also came up with another recipe for basa, it's really fast and easy.
  1. oil a baking dish with olive oil so that it doesn't stick
  2. squish half a lemon in it and put a diced up garlic and 3 pieces of ginger in there
  3. put 1 basa fillet in there
  4. squish the other half of the lemon on the fish
  5. top some olive oil
  6. sprinkle salt and pepper
  7. top with a few pieces of ginger and diced garlic
  8. bake in oven for 20 minutes(pre-heated at 450f)
that's it!

FryBoy, basa is a white fish, and it is a bit like um...tilapia in texture. Very mild flavour so you can do lots with it.

Just made some last night. It is quite a nice fish--white, mild, more firm in texture than flounder (which is a good thing to me--like firmer). I dipped in egg wash and then in instant potato flakes (seasoned a bit). Sauteed in a TBS of butter + a TBS of oil. Beautiful golden crust.
Had some golden fried okra to go with it, corn, and summer tomato!!
