How to cook Fried Alaska Pollock in Brandy Batter
- 1 pound Alaska pollock or cod or haddock fillets (I used frozen)
- Olive oil for frying
- Chopped green onions to garnish
- 6 leaves lettuce to garnish
- For Brandy Batter:
- 1/2 cup flour
- 2 ounces milk
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 tablespoons sour cream
- 1-2 tablespoons soy sauce (I used Kikkoman soy sauce)
- 1 egg white
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 1/2 tablespoons brandy
- For Marinade:
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 ounces lemon juice
- Salt and freshly grated black pepper (I used allspice) to taste
- Finely chopped parsley
- For Dill Sauce:
- 3 ounces cream (30%)
- 1 ounces lemon juice
- Chopped dill
- Rinse the fish fillets under running cold water and pat dry with paper towels. Cut into serving size pieces.
- To prepare marinade mix olive oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper and finely chopped parsley.
- Add the fish, place in the refrigerator and allow to marinate for at least 20 minutes.
- Meanwhile, prepare brandy batter. Combine flour, warm milk, olive oil, sour cream, soy sauce, egg yolk, and brandy.
- Mix to make a rather thin batter with the consistency of pancake batter. You may need to add more flour or milk to get the right consistency. Let stand aside for 10-15 minutes.
- Place egg whites into a large bowl, add a pinch of salt and whip, using the whisk, until soft peaks form.
- Add to batter and gently fold them together, using a spatula (do not whip!).
- Dip each piece of marinated fish fillets in the batter and fry in hot olive oil until nicely golden brown on both sides.
- Place the fried fish on kitchen paper towels to remove excess oil.
- For dill sauce, combine the cream and lemon juice, whisk and add the finely chopped dill.
- Lay the lettuce leaves on a serving plate, place on top the fried fish and garnish with chopped green onions.
- Serve immediately with dill sauce, baked or boiled potatoes, fresh tomatoes, and lemon slices.
- Bon appetit!
