Marinated Fried Fish

  • SERVINGS: 6

This fish is first deep-fried, then marinated and chilled. In Egypt, cooks use bream from the Mediterranean, but you can substitute any firm, white fish.

  1. Pure olive oil, for frying
  2. 2 pounds skinless monkfish or cod fillets, cut into 2-inch-long pieces
  3. Kosher salt
  4. All-purpose flour, for dredging
  5. 1 onion, finely chopped
  6. 3/4 cup coarsely chopped cilantro
  7. 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  8. Juice of 1 lemon
  9. 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  10. 1 red or green chile—stemmed, seeded and finely chopped
  1. In a medium saucepan, heat 1 inch of the pure olive oil to 350°. Season the fish with salt, then dredge it in the flour, turning to coat lightly. Working in batches, add the fish to the oil and fry, turning once, until golden, 4 to 5 minutes for monkfish; 3 to 4 minutes for cod. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the fish to paper towels to drain.
  2. In a bowl, combine the onion with the cilantro, extra-virgin olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, chile and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Arrange the fish in a single layer in a shallow glass or ceramic dish, then spoon the marinade over it and turn to coat. Let stand at room temperature for at least 1 hour. Serve immediately or refrigerate and serve cold.
