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.
This dish, called megadarra, is immensely popular in Egypt and throughout the Arab world. Claudia Roden's aunt presented it regularly to guests, saying, "Excuse this food of the poor." They would reply, "Keep your food of kings and give us megadarra any day!" Delicious, Quick Side Dishes
