Potato baked wedges and fried fish is a delicious way to eat fish.
This recipe is delicious and very easy to make,nothing fancy other than a few ingredients.

FRIED FISH
I have noticed that a lot of fish recipes from outside Africa use skinless fish.Here in Zambia fishes with skins are the most popular types of fish,in fact I have never been to a restaurant had ever offered me skinless fish.
I have been to Nigeria, Tanzania and Ghana and these are the types of fish popular.
Use whatever type of fish you prefer,your fish will be as delicious as any type of fish.

HOW TO COOK FRIED FISH

Step 1

Remove the fish's scales using a fish scaler.I have seen comments on my other fish recipe,the commenters said that they buy already cleaned fish.I buy fish in a box from a fisheries company, I'm not sure if they actually sale already cleaned fish but I'll consult the next time I go there.


STEP 2
Make sure the fish is completely dry before you start frying as excess moisture can lower the temperature of cooking oil.

HOW TO COOK FISH PERFECTLY
Use a heavy pan.
Make sure you heat the pan before adding oil,do not move the fish til it naturally releases or the fish will be dry.

HOW TO KNOW THE OIL IS HOT ENOUGH.
Insert a wooden spoon into the oil,if the oil is hot it will bubble around the stick.

TIP.
Use a paper towel lined plate to drain the fish as it will absorb more oil compared to a wire rank.

Serve with potato baked wedges.

These baked potato wedges are seasoned with mixed herbs and butter then they are grilled til a bit crispy.

I fry potato wedges a lot so this time I decided to have them baked.these baked potato wedges complimented the fried fish.

HOW TO CUT POTATOES INTO WEDGES?

First wash your potatoes.peel the potatoes then cut them in half,and another half from every half to make them quarters,then slice those quarters into fours.

HOW TO MAKE POTATO WEDGES

After you have sliced all your potatoes, it's time to add them in a pot of water,add salt and garlic then cook on low heat.
When your potatoes are ready,drain the water.add butter and mixed herbs then grill til a bit crispy on top

TIP
You can use any seasoning to spice things up a bit
