Cajun Pan-Fried Fish with Tomato Salsa



I spotted this in a cafe's menu when we dined in for some cold desserts. It prompted me the idea to prepare the similar meal for the next day's lunch. I'm guessing the ingredients and cooking method via the name of the dish. "Cajun" is what I used to marinate the fish. "Pan-fried" is the method I applied to cook up the fish. And "tomato salsa" is the sauce that I served the fish with. Sounds easy, right?

Cajun Pan-Fried Fish with Tomato Salsa

Ingredients:
2 boneless fish fillets, rubbed with salt and sprinkled with Cajun
cooking oil

Tomato Salsa
1 ripe tomato, cubed
half lemon, juiced
spring onion, chopped
3 garlic, peeled and crashed
sugar and salt to taste

Steps:
1. Mix up all the ingredients for tomato salsa. Set aside.
2. Heat up oil in a pan. Pan-fry the fish on both sides.
3. Rest the fish fillets on kitchen towel to remove excess oil.
4. Transfer it onto a plate. Top with tomato salsa. Serve hot.

I seldom cook fish as I usualy just fry them and sprinkle some soya sauce on top...the mess and smell created by the frying really puts me off from cooking fish. Perhaps this would be a better way to eat fish huh! Not to mention more healthy:)

I love cajun seasoning,it's not something which I use very often, but when I do, I always think why I don't do more Cajun cooking...;)??
