  3. Into the frying pan pour the vegetable oil without smell (a little) and warm it up.
  4. Fish is bread in flour, the odd part of flour is taken away. Fry literally for two minutes on each side.
  5. We put the fried fish in a bowl and let it cool down for a while.At this time, we are preparing cheese batter.
