Cut the fish into 5 pieces. Cover with salt and pepper. Peel and crush the garlic.
In a plastic bag, add the flour and fish and shake until thinly coated.
In a pan, fry olive oil and garlic over low heat. When the garlic is golden, take it out.
Place the fish skin down on the pan and cook on medium heat until the skin is crispy. Cook the other side the same way.
Transfer to a serving plate and add garlic on top. Pour lemon juice and enjoy.
Story Behind this Recipe
I had some leftover fish, so I made this.
You cook the fish into small pieces before cooking it, so it cooks surprisingly quickly. Avoid overcooking it. While cooking, add thyme or rosemary for a twist. I also cooked potatoes in the empty space of the pan.
