Crispy Fried Sutchi Fish Recipe

There’s nothing better than panko breadcrumbs when it comes to frying food as they give that excellent crisp and crunch without it tasting like a heavy crust batter. Check out my other recipes which make good use of panko:

Chicken Katsudon
Crispy Onion Rings
Shark Fillet with Lemon Mustard
Halibut with Pecorino Romano

Panko is just so versatile, you can basically use it with anything that you’re thinking of frying up. I had some beautiful slabs of sutchi fish fillets which I split into 2 meals. Pan-fried one batch and shallow-fried the other. This is the recipe for the shallow-fried one. Serve with some tartar sauce or sweet chilli sauce, it’s really scrumptious! And if you have some fries or chips to go with it, you can easily turn this dish into a hearty fish and chips too. Enjoy!

    Can I enquire where to get this Panko Breadcrumbs ? Is Panko the brand ?

      Hi Nellyn, panko is just a name for Japanese style bread crumbs that are coarse & flaky. It comes in various brands that you can get from any supermarket here. I like the Ottogi brand which is made in Korea and you can get it from NTUC Fairprice or Cold Storage.
