6 shallots
2 cloves of garlic

2. Pat dry the fish with kitchen paper.
3. Blend ginger, garlic and shallots into paste.
4. Season the fish with salt and pepper. Add in the blended ingredients as in (3), chopped coriander leaves and lemon rinds and marinade for at least 1 hour before frying.
5. Beat the egg and season with some salt and pepper. Contain it with a plate instead of a bowl for easy coating.

Season the the fish with salt, pepper (black or white), chopped coriander, shredded lemon rinds, ginger, garlic and shallot paste. Do not discard the marinated ingredients as these are added fiber to a meat dish.

Dab in flour, follow by egg and then coat it again with bread crumbs before frying.
