Dry any excess water from the fish with paper towels.

Beat the eggs well. Doing only a few pieces at a time, coat the fish in flour. Dip each piece of fish into the egg and turn to coat all over. Remove with a fork and place into medium-hot oil to fry. Cook until browned, turning the fish over halfway through.

Remove from the oil with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Repeat until all the fish is cooked. Serve with potato chips, long-stem broccoli and lemon slices.

Tip of the day

Baobab leaves
African cooks use leaves from the massive baobab tree to thicken their stews. Like okra, the leaves give the dish a congealing texture that's characteristic of West African stews. Okra will give a similar effect if you can't find baobab leaves.
