Pan Fried Whole Croaker


  • 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


  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!
