How to cook Crispy Fried Herring with Ginger Garlic Sauce
- 1 whole herring (I used fresh-frozen), about 1 pound
- 4 tablespoons Panko bread crumbs
- Salt to taste
- 1 Egg beaten
- Vegetable oil for frying
- For Ginger Garlic Sauce:
- 3 ounces sour cream (or yogurt)
- Hot chili pepper to taste
- 1/2 clove garlic
- 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
- 1-2 tablespoons chopped greens (dill, cilantro, parsley)
- 1/2 teaspoon honey
- Salt to taste
- Lemon juice to taste
- Gut the whole fish, cut off the head and tail; fillet and debone it. Rinse the fish fillets well with cold water.
- Remove the skin from the fillets (it is very easy, it is removed as a stocking, flat and smooth).
- Season the fillets with salt, then dip in beaten egg and roll over Panko bread crumbs.
- Dredge both sides of the fish fillets in the bread crumbs and press with finger tips well so crumbs adhere to the fillets.
- Grind the grated ginger, chili and garlic to a paste, using a mortar and pestle.
- Add sour cream (or yogurt), salt, honey, chopped greens, and a few drops of lemon juice if desired; stir. Taste, add salt as needed.
- Place in the refrigerator while you fry the fish.
- Fry the breaded herring fillets on a well-heated frying pan with vegetable oil for about 1-2 minutes on each side.
- Served the fried herring fillets with ginger garlic sauce aside.
