Complexity: Easy

Ingredients:

  • 4 – 6 (4-oz) salmon fillets, skinless cut in large chunks
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp green seasoning
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp pepper sauce or ¼ tsp cayenne pepper

  • 1½ cups flour
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 2 cups panko breadcrumbs
  • Salt and black pepper
  • Dried herb of choice eg parsley, chive, thyme
  • Oil for frying

Directions:

  1. Place the salmon in a bowl. Season with salt, pepper, green seasoning, paprika and pepper sauce. Let marinate for at least half hour. This can be refrigerated up to overnight.
  2. Mix lime juice into the salmon,
  3. Place the flour, eggs and breadcrumbs in separate bowls. Season the flour and the breadcrumbs with a little salt and black pepper. Mix in the dried herbs into the breadcrumbs.
  4. Bread the salmon chunks, a few at a time first coating lightly with flour, then eggs and finally the seasoned breadcrumbs. Ensure the salmon is well coated at each stage.
  5. Heat a large frying pan with at least 1-inch thickness of oil over medium high heat. Add the salmon a few at a time, not crowding the pan. Cook on one side for a few minutes until golden brown and then finish cooking on the other. The length of cooking will depend on the size of the chunks.
