Shall we have some delicious battered fish fillets for dinner today? Surely when you finish reading this recipe you will be ready to prepare this simple and healthy dinner for the kids at home.
Nutrition experts recommend that we include fish in our weekly menu at least four or five times. Many children find it difficult to eat fish, that is why we keep giving you ideas and fish recipes. They must get used to eating fish because its nutritional properties are very important for their development and growth.
These battered fish fillets are very juicy and tasty, they also have a soft texture and are boneless, which is why they are so popular among children.
You can use the fish that you like, fillets of sole, rooster, hake, pangasius… today I have found in the fishmonger’s shop neither roosters nor big soles that was what I was looking for, so I have prepared these battered fish fillets with frozen haddock fillets, very economic and not for it, less rich.
Battered fish fillets
- 500 grams of fish fillets (or 1 pound (lb))
- 1 glass of milk
- 3 cloves of garlic
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- 1 tablespoon of chopped parsley
- 2 eggs
- Extra virgin olive oil
Preparation of the battered fish
- Make a paste in a mortar with the garlic cloves, salt, and parsley. Put the fish fillets in a bowl, add the paste and the milk and let it rest for at least 30 minutes. After this time, drain the fish fillets, coat them in flour and then dip them in a beaten egg. Fry in plenty of hot extra virgin olive oil. When they are golden brown, remove and place them on absorbent paper to absorb the excess oil.
- Now, all we have to do is serve, the kids are sure to eat everything, everything, and everything. I have accompanied it with some cherry tomatoes, just as they are…without dressing and without breaking, it is the only way for them to eat it, children’s stuff ;).
