Fish is a good source of protein that helps repair body tissues. This dish also contains niacin that promotes normal digestion and healthy skin.

Chef`s Tip

Thinly coat the fish with flour to keep it from sticking to the pan as you fry. It also will give a thin crispy crust which will keep it from getting soggy in the sauce later on.
