Flavorful Crispy Shark Fillet


by: simply beautiful and healthy living

Whenever I go back to my hometown in Ayer Tawar, Sitiawan, Perak, I would usually buy some shark fillets back to KL. It's cheap and no hassle of cleaning the fish! The fishmonger would remove the leathery skin and you don't need to have headache struggling to remove the skin. Once, I bought the whole shark fish at the local market in KL. Unfortunately, the fishmonger refused to remove the skin for me! At the end, while struggling to remove the leathery skin which is quite tough, instead of getting the fillet, it ended up as fish paste! Hahaha... So, since then, no more buying shark fish in KL. So when craving for fried shark fillet but couldn't get any shark fish, I usually substitute it with Dory fish or any white fish fillet. Just popped over to your nearby supermarket to get it. It's so easy and hassle free!
