Chilean Crispy Fried Fish Fillets Recipe

Serves/Makes: 4


  • 4 monkfish (cod or other white fish) fillets (about 6 ounces each and 1-inch-thick), boneless, skinless or 4 whole red snappers (totally about 1 1/2 pounds), ready to cook
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 cups (approximately) vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano (optional)
  • Lemon wedges
How to cook Chilean Crispy Fried Fish Fillets:
  • Rinse the fish and pat dry with paper towels. Season with salt and black pepper on both sides. Place the flour in a shallow bowl and mix in the oregano. Dredge the fish in the flour and shake off the excess.
  • Heat the oil in a large saute pan or wok to 350°F(180°C). Add the fish, in batches, and fry until light brown on both sides, 2 to 3 minutes a side. Keep the oil hot.
  • Drain the fish on paper towels, and dredge once more in the flour, shaking off the excess. Fry the fish, in batches, a second time until crispy and golden brown on both sides, 2 to 3 minutes a side. Drain on paper towels and serve at once. Garnish with lemon wedges.
