Cashew Fish Breading Ingredients:

  • 1 ¼ cups salted cashews
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • ¾ teaspoon salt (or to taste)

  • ¾ teaspoon white pepper (or to taste)

Fish Fry Ingredients:

  • Fish fillets
  • All-purpose flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • ½ cup of liquid (water, beer, white wine, milk, cream or evaporated milk)

Directions:


  1. To make breading, combine all cashew fish breading ingredients in a food processor fitted with a steel knife. Process until nuts are finely pulverized.

  2. Shake fish fillets in a bag containing all-purpose flour. Remove fish from bag and shake off any excess flour.
  3. Dip fish fillets into a mixture of 2 beaten eggs, a pinch of salt and ½ cup of liquid.
  4. Then dredge or shake the fillets in the cashew breading.
  5. Place breaded fillets on a pan or plate and set aside until you're ready to fry them.
