Flavorful Crispy Shark Fillet

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!

- 800gm shark fillet (cut into bite size or your preferred size and marinated for 1 hour)
- oil for deep or shallow fry (I prefer shallow fry)

For the marinate: (to taste)
- 1 egg white
- 1 tbsps lemon juice
- 1/2 tbsp Dijon mustard
- 1 tsp salt
- a dash of  pepper
- 1/2 tbsp sesame oil

Batter : (Mixed)
- 2 eggs
- 1.5 tsp baking powder
- 3 tbsp oil
- 1 tsp salt
- 1.5 tbsp corn flour
- 8 tbsp plain flour
- 6 tbsp water

Methods :
1) Mix all the marinade and marinate the fish fillets for 1 hour.
2) Meanwhile, prepare the batter.

3) Heat oil in a wok or pan for deep fry. I prefer shallow fry.
4) Coat the fillets with batter and shallow fry until both sides are golden brown.
5) Dish and drain.
6) Serve with chili sauce or mayonnaise.

This simple fried shark fillet is very flavorful.  Give this a try and those children who normally don't like fish would gobble it up in no time! 
The meat is juicy and soft
Do have a wonderful week ahead and smile always :)
