Fried fish Málaga stylee
Going to the Costa del Sol without trying fried fish would be like visiting its beaches without going for a swim!
The best way to eat fish is fried... everybody likes it! Add a splash of lemon and taste the wide variety of fishes from Malaga’s coast. All in just two simple steps!
Fish: fresh anchovies (boquerones vitorianos are the best). Red mullet, squid, cuttlefish... Pick your favourite or whatever’s available
Extra virgin olive oil
Clean the fish and add salt.
Pour a decent amount of olive oil into a frying pan and put it over the heat.
Dust the fish in flour and start frying it in small amounts, always using very hot oil so the flour doesn’t come off.
Remove any excess flour before putting the fish in the pan so it doesn't burn
Try sprinkling fried parsley over the fish
To remove excess oil, put the fried fish on top of a paper towel; remove this before you eat.
And don’t forget that splash of lemon juice!
