Jamaican Fried Fish Recipe
Jamaican Fried Fish Recipe by Kemoy McCurbyn
Fried fish is just one of the many ways that we prepare our fish. And Fish, when
fried, can be had with any side dish. In Jamaican it is famously eaten with
bammy or festival. The snapper by the way, is our preferred choice when it comes to
frying or preparing fish, as this particular fish has a lot of flesh and
has a great taste.
So what is the best fish to fry? It doesn’t really matter much if it is whole
fish or sliced fish, or what species it is, any fish is the same with us,
and we prepare it tasty just the same :-)
So for this recipe, the choice is yours, any type of fish
you prefer can be used.
