Begin to cook
- We wash the fish carefully, remove the insides and black film.Cut the fins. Pieces of fish are piled into a deep bowl and poured with boiled water, the temperature of which is 80-90 degrees. But don’t use the boiling water!
- We remove all mucus from the fish with a help of the knife.We divide the catfish on the fillet and add a little salt (just a little bit).
- Into the frying pan pour the vegetable oil without smell (a little) and warm it up.
- Fish is bread in flour, the odd part of flour is taken away. Fry literally for two minutes on each side.
- We put the fried fish in a bowl and let it cool down for a while.At this time, we are preparing cheese batter.
- We rub the hard cheese on a small grater and put it into a bowl.
- Take the zest from a lemon and grate it a small grater. Try not to catch a white lemon layer, otherwise the prepared dish will be bitter.
- Mix the cheese with lemon zest.
- Into the same bowl, put finely chopped green parsley, stir thoroughly with the help of a spoon.
- We cover the baking tray with baking paper and grease with vegetable oil.
- On paper lay out the pieces of fillet, on them we lay out the cheese batter. Do not be grudge: it should be very much of it.
- We send the frying tray with fish to the oven, heated to 200 degrees, for seven minutes.
- While the fish is baked, we have to make some sauce. Apples of sweet and sour varieties are peeled and cut into small cubes.
- In order to prevent the apples from darkening, we squeeze juice from half a lemon into them.
- We put mustard and sour cream into apples, mix thoroughly.
- Onto a portioned flat dish put a few spoons of sauce, and a piece of fish above. We decorate with sprigs of parsley. You can serve fish together with a rice side dish.
