These crispy, golden, pan-fried salmon fillets, wrapped with aromatic spices, could be the most satisfying and healthy dinner choice for anyone who fancies a light meal. A couple of slices of garlic bread, and an assortment of steamed veggies rolled on a blob of butter could add extra flavours as well as nutrition value to this meal.
It’s amazing that this combination of spices adds a real fusion to the fish and also by wrapping the fish fillets on crushed cornflakes has taken a very rebellious turn compared to the usual – mild, just-salt-and-pepper with a dash of the lemon version of frying the same fish.
While the fish are sizzling on the pan, the juices will run out and the aroma will fill the kitchen, tempting you to grab a little piece from a side and pop it straight into your mouth! Seriously, do not burn your fingers! It will be ready in minutes!
Oh, remember to scrape the juices and toss on the fillets before taking them out of the pan. They will taste heavenly!
