Oh my god! Does this look like a summer meal? Good. Not my fault, the ingredients were in the market. Succulent monk fish cheeks, mangos and red onions. Lunch-able. Turn up the thermostat and pretend.
I don’t really like mangoes but I like them in salsa.
2 mangoes, peeled and cut into cubes
1/2 red onion, chopped
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
Juice of 1 lime
Salt and pepper
1 lb white fish cheeks
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp salt
Peanut oil for frying
Mix together the mango, cilantro, onion, lime juice, salt, pepper and refrigerate.
Beat the milk and egg together and set aside. Mix together the flour, bread crumbs, paprika, salt and pepper.
Dip the fish cheeks in the milk, coat with the flour mixture and fry until golden brown.
