3 eggs

4 lemon wedges

vegetable oil for frying


  1. Preheat the oil in a deep pot to 350°F (180ºC), or medium high (you may know it’s ready when you throw inside a piece of bread and it floats and bubbles, it shouldn’t sink or burn too fast).
  2. Mix cornmeal, flour, salt, lemon pepper and white pepper.
  3. Break the eggs in a bowl and mix them.
  4. Place the flour in another bowl.
  5. Cut the fillets in thick stripes, and dip each in the flour, then in the eggs and lastly in the cornmeal mix.
  6. Fry each one until golden brown on each side.
  7. Serve with lemon.
