How to Properly Cook a Fillet

Fish fillet is a good source of protein. Kids and everyone love fillet because you don’t need to separate the fish bone from the fish meat while eating. It’s ready to eat anywhere even if you’re blindfolded.


Meat of fish cleaned and deboned is fillet. The family of Yellow Fin Tuna is good for fillet, as the Blue Marlin or milk fish from the Philippines make good fillet recipes.


Here are tips how to properly cook fish fillet:


1. Wash the fish.
2. Put salt or pepper or the herbs you desire. It depends on what recipe you’ll be cooking. Some fillet recipes are marinated for a night or for some hours before cooking. Some can be cooked immediately. It depends on the recipe.
3. Beat 2 eggs. Set aside.
4. Prepare flour in a wide bowl or tray. Quantity depends how much fish you are cooking.
5. Get another big plate or tray.
6. Dip fillet in beaten eggs.
7. Roll in flour.
8. Lay coated fillet in one big plate.


Note: So it depends on the recipe you’re cooking. You can fry the fillet in hot oil. After frying you set it aside to cook another recipe with sauce like soy fish steak, sweet and sour, or fillet in tomato sauce.


If fried, you can dip fillet in mayonnaise, catsup, or a dressing of your choice. Fried fish fillet recipes are good to eat with fries.


You can also make fish fillet sandwich with lots of vegetables. This can be eaten with pasta or salad.


If you choose to cook fish fillet in sauce, let it simmer for a few minutes in the sauce and it will be luscious to the tongue. The egg is the secret there. So it’s the egg first before the flour. You can also mix flour with cornstarch.


Flour is okay. Cornstarch makes it crispy. Ready- mix crumbs like Japanese mixes for frying can be used for fillets.


Fillet in Sweet Sour Sauce:

After coating the fillet as shown above,

Mix vinegar, sugar, 1 cup water, 1 cup soup stock, and some cornstarch in a bowl. Heat slowly. Put sliced onions, ginger, and bell peppers (optional: or canned pineapple). Mix with the sauce as to desired sweetness. Pour in the fried fillet. Cook slowly in fire until fillet gets soft. Don’t overcook vegetables. Yum! You have your Fish Fillet in Sweet and Sour Sauce.


Option: You can buy ready sweet and sour sauce mix in supermarkets. You can just add the vegetables and the fillet to the sauce mix.


Happy cooking!
