Vermicelli coated fried fish

Today’s post is about a Singaporean fish item , vermicelli coated fried fish . Very crispy from outside and inside so tender . I really loved the combo!!! Singapore being a land of mixed races and culture , has so many fusion dishes . This vermicelli coated fried fish is one of my favorites among those . Very easy recipe yet so tasty .


2 medium fillet of any fish , I took Basa fillet
1 beaten egg
2 tbl spoon of flour/ maida , heaped
salt to taste
Black pepper, crushed , less than half a teaspoon
Nutmeg/ jaifol powder a pinch ( don’t skip, it enhances the taste)
Vermicelli/ shemai enough to coat, broken
Food color , a tip of the finger ( optional)
Oil for frying


1. Wash the fillets and pat dry very well with a kitchen towel or tissue .

2. Make the batter with one beaten egg, maida , salt, crushed black pepper and nutmeg powder . It will be a thick batter . You may add a little food color in the batter too .. 🙂

3. Put the fillets into the batter and keep aside for at least half n hour .

4. Coat with vermicelli and fry both side very well on medium low heat . don’t deep fry .

Ready …
