Pan Fried Whole Croaker

Ingredients:

  • 2 medium-sized yellow croakers (scaled, cleaned and rinsed)

  • 3 tbsp soju or rice wine

  • 2 tbsp garlic (crushed)

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

  • 4 tbsp flour

  • 1/2 tbsp chapsal (glutinous rice powder)

  • 1 tbsp cornstarch

  • canola oil, for frying


Directions:

  1. Combine your soju, garlic, salt, pepper, and sprinkle onto both yellow croakers. Marinate for about 15 minutes.

  2. Mix flour, rice powder, and cornstarch together in a large bowl.

  3. Dip the fish into the flour mixture, coating both sides evenly.

  4. In a pan, add at least 1/8-inch of cooking oil and heat.

  5. Pan-fry over medium-high heat until both sides are nicely browned. Add extra oil, if necessary. Depending on the size of the fish, it will take about 3-5 minutes per side to cook.

  6. Remove the fish from the pan immediately and drain on a paper towel. Garnish with chopped scallions and serve with white rice. Enjoy!
