I would like to encourage you to take a look at my new YouTube channel where I've been posting recipe and lifestyle videos including a video of today's recipe.

Fried fish is one of the most classic examples of North African fare. And with the Mediterranean sea right in the doorstep why wouldn't it be? Fish is an important component of the North African/Algerian diet, especially in coastal cities like where I live. In non-coastal areas, you can find fresh fish of all varieties being sold on the streets and ports. And fish such as sardines also pose as an economical way to enjoy fish. A pure delight for all ! Freshly caught white fish such a bream, haddock, cod and red snapper are ideal for this recipe. But when not available frozen can also be used.

Begin by cleaning the fish, removing the gulls, eyes or even the whole head if desired. Clean out the stomach and wash well.

Place the spices, flour and cornmeal in a large bag or bowl. Coat the fish with the breading well. 

Fry the fish on each side in hot oil. Cooking time depends on the type and size of fish.

This fish would go lovely with some salad, and  freshly baked bread!
