 Chitra Pal Fish Sticks

Marinated Fish in Sauce


  • Cut two fillets into bite size pieces (approx. 6-7 pieces)
  • Marinate them into zip lock bag or plastic container from 4-24 hrs and keep it aside in fridge (preferred overnight)
  • Take out the fish 20 minutes before cooking to allow them to come in room temperature.
  • In the mean time grate the bread slices into fresh bread crumbs and take them out in separate bowl or tray.
  • Heat oil in a non stick pan/skillet.
  • Take out the fish and roll it over bread crumbs until they are all coated with it.
  • When the pan has turned hot turn down the heat to medium and put the fish piece one by one. Turning heat to medium will not smoke into your kitchen.
  • Do not flip the fish until it has been cooked to 5 mins. Or the breaded fish has turned golden brown each side.
  • Take another small pan and pour the marinating sauce into it and reduce it till it turns thick.

When the fish is cooked sprinkle fresh cilantro/dhaniya and lemon juice over it and place it over the marinating sauce. Serve hot.
