Fried fish with lemon – A tasty and crunchy chinese fish recipe that is served as a starter.
Wondering what the role of lemon is in this recipe. Not much…it is just used at the end just like any other indian fried fish dishes (simple fish fry/meen varuval). I do not know why it is named like that. However, taste was very good. You should be careful while adding the sauce and vinegar as it may turn sour and salty. So be careful while adding them. The outer layer would be crispy enough and you can just have this dish as an appetizer or with noodles and fried rice (egg soyabean sprouts fried rice).
