Portuguese Style Fried Fish Fillets ❦ Filetes de Pescada Fritos

This recipe is extremely popular all over Portugal. You can find in in most restaurantes. Today I used fresh cod, but in Portugal hake is often used. Feel free to use this technique for any firm fleshed fish fillet you like. The marinade is key, and only takes 30 minutes. The coating is delicious! I like to serve these with my tomato rice, aka, arroz de tomate malandrinho, and a garden salad

Enjoy xoxo
