- Coat the fish fillets in the flour and cook in gently pace in the hot ghee.
- When the fish is golden in colour, then turn over to cook the other side.

Any type of white fish fillets can be used for this recipe. I prefer to use the frozen Hoki fillets as these can be readily available in the freezer.
