Dory Fish with Potato and Mushroom & Cookware Giveaway!


This was supposed to be fish & chips, but the chips was substituted with cold potato salad and brown mushrooms. Instead of deep-frying the battered fish, I shallow-fry crumbed fish followed by oven-baked. Doesn't it sound lighter and healthier in this way? That's our so called healthy balanced diet, hehe...

By the way, I'll be hosting a FREE cookware giveaway soon. If you don't want to miss it, subscribe to my blog to get the latest updates!

i never like the taste of Dory fish.

tigerfish said...

Shallow-fry then oven can give such gorgeous fish! So good! :D

J2Kfm said...

Dory fish usually have that muddy taste, but of course, there are different species of Dory, hence not all are bad.

Anyway, a squeeze of lemon juice would be miles better than a lime, definitely.

I've never even heard of Dory fish. Sounds delicious though and shallow-frying is the way to go. Very nice post!

foodbin, I will choose frozen Dory than frozen snapper which need "air tupai" to clean.

tigerfish, thanks. Shallow-frying is a better method. I like it.

J2Kfm, the calamansi is sfor photography purpose, hehe...

Anncoo, thanks. :)

daphne, yea although frozen fish is used, but it still sounds healthy, right?
