I love fried fishWhile it make my tummy rumble in ecstasy, my blood vessels are shuttering with fear of all that cholesterol. 😛

We usually have the batter made out of white flour, or maybe cornflour (hello, sky-high insulin), and then deep-fried in some vat of polyunsaturated fat that has been used over and over, creating a huge batch of trans-fat laden ooze that your fish is swimming in before it reaches your plate, all to wreck havoc on your health. Okay, so maybe now you don’t love fried fish so much? Sorry to ruin it for ya! But here’s my healthy, and lip-smacking alternative!!

 This is one of those delicious and clean eating recipes where I often ask myself, “why don’t I make this more often?”It’s an easy way to cook flaky fish like Salmon. It’s simple to put together and packs a good deal of flavor as well.

In this Salmon Fish Fry recipe I have used Salmon fish which cook well of the bone. You can experiment with other fish. Meatier fish like tilapia fish, Sole and halibut work very well too.Salmon fish tastes the best when marinated with spices and fried. I had this salmon fish fry with the roasted veggies and such a treat it was…. the perfect delicious clean eating meal.

    Excellent recipe! I made the Salmon Fish today but, would you believe, I forgot the chickpea flour.. It still turned out crispy and delicious. I discovered the measured out chickpea flour on the cupboard after I put the fish in the pan, yikes!
    anyways, Thanks for the recipe.
