Alison Hinds – Italian Breaded Fried Fish


1 pk flying fish fillets

1 pk shark fillets

Salt and Black pepper

Juice of 2 limes

2 tbsp Italian seasoning


1½ cups panko breadcrumbs

1 cup grated Parmesan cheese

2 tsp dried basil

2 tsp dried thyme

2 tsp oregano

2 – 3 cloves garlic, minced

Salt and pepper

3 oz butter melted

Oil for shallow frying


  1. Rinse the flying fish and shark fillets in lime water and pat dry.
  2. Season the fish with the Italian seasoning, salt, black pepper and a little lime juice. Let marinate for approximately ½ hour.
  3. Make the breading. Add the breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, basil, thyme, oregano, garlic, salt and black pepper in a bowl. Mix well.
  4. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium high heat.
  5. Brush the fillets on both sides with melted butter. Dip each fillet in the breading mixture ensuring that the fillet is evenly coated.
  6. Fry in batches in the hot oil, 2 – 3 minutes on each side. The shark will take a little longer based on thickness.
  7. Remove from oil and drain on a paper towel. Serve.
