  • Longspine fillets, skin on
  • 1 lemon 
  • ½ cup flour
  • ¼ cup bread crumbs

  • Chili powder
  • Paprika
  • Cumin
  • Garlic graduals
  • Spices (any that you like! Lemon pepper, onion graduals, cayenne)  
  • Olive oil (for frying)


  1. Prepare the spiced fish fry coating – mix flour, bread crumbs with spices, roughly 50:50 adding a fair amount of chili powder/paprika/salt. Depend on how hot you like it be sparingly on the cayenne.
  2. Rinse fish and pat dry, coat both sides of fish in the spiced mixture.
  3. Preheat oil to mid-high in heavy bottomed pan (cast iron works best).
  4. Skin side down, add the fish to the oil and cook for 2 minutes, turn over cook for 2  more minutes. These fish tend to curl when you cook them. They are great for adding to pasta or rice dishes or fish tacos.
