Cereal Fish - 麦片鱼

What’s better than cereal prawns? Cereal FISH of course! And for this dish we used barramundi belly, this premium cut of fish fits three criterias.

Firstly, it comes with delicious melt-in-your-mouth fats. Secondly, the flesh is chunky and tender and lastly, it is even boneless!

So we say “mai tu liao” (don’t wait anymore), coat it with a crispy batter and toss it in aromatic cereal flakes for a delicious family dinner!
