My first taste of cream dory (also called Pangasius) was during over lunch at Italianni's. I read that they're using the said fish on their Parmesan Crusted Fish Fillet. At that time, I was yearning to cook using cream dory but was having a hard time looking for one in the market so I'm always buying another fish fillet called labahita, a good alternative too I should say. But good thing it's much easier now to find frozen packets of cream dory fillets thus more reason for me to experiment with different recipes.
|Cream Dory with Lemon and Butter|
4 Fillets of Cream Dory
Lemon (I used 5 pieces of kalamansi as alternative)
salt and white pepper
garlic, crushed and sliced
2 eggs, beaten
Japanese Bread Crumbs
cayenne pepper (optional)
1. Marinate cream dory into calamansi, garlic, salt and white pepper for at least 10-15 minutes.
2. Remove calamansi seeds and garlic on the fish before covering it with flour. Dip into beaten eggs and cover lastly with breadcrumbs.
3. Heat oil in non stick pan. Pan fry with butter until golden brown. (cooking the fish only takes about 2-3 minutes on each side, relatively faster than our usual fried fish)
