We (me and my lil munchkin ) therefore dress up and head out for some grocery shopping at Buehler's down the street. At the entrance I see a huge line of shopping carts and a few carts with toy cars attached and I think to myself that my little one might be better engaged riding that than a normal shopping cart. So for the first time I tried it out and it was a remarkable success, as Mia was having the time of her life behind the steering wheel. Every now and then, just to boost her spirits I would bow down to her level and say "Vrooom Vroooom"...which made her smile big time and turn the steering even more furiously :))
Both Mamma and Mia were having a great time and the best thing that happened was that we found some really good,fresh fillet of Swordfish, Cod and Smelt that just came in from Boston,that too, for a great price. My Mojo is already back up and we wrap up our shopping and head back home with a smile. On the way back driving ,I was pondering as to what I could prepare with such good fish and the answer was simple : I decided to make one my grandma's favorite recipes- fish crumb fry :))
1 lb - White meat fish fillet
1 Tbsp - Black or yellow mustard seeds
2 Tbsp - Vinegar
1 Tsp - Black pepper4 cloves - Garlic
For Bread Crumb Coating
3 slices - Bread
1 - Egg
A pinch of Black pepperSalt
- Add Black Mustard seeds, Vinegar, Black pepper, Garlic and Salt in a blender and grind to make a coarse paste.
- Marinate the Swordfish with the above mixture and leave aside for 30 mins.
- Beat egg in a bowl. Add salt and pepper.
- Add bread slices in the blender and pulse a few times. Transfer the bread crumbs to a flat dish or plate.
- Discard the excess marinade and immerse each piece of fish into the egg and then coat it with the bread crumbs.
- Heat oil in a non-stick frying pan and shallow fry the bread-coated fish fillets until golden brown. Serve with Tartar sauce or Ketchup.
Notes & Tips:
- You can bake the fish in the oven at 350F to avoid frying.Make sure you spray oil generously over the fish before you bake it.
- You can use any white meat fish in place of Swordfish.
