Fried Asuhos

Fried Asuhos
Fried Asuhos. Most of the times asuhos has been mistaken as dilis, they are probably in the same family of fish. I usually make kinilaw with asuhos they are more convenient to prepare compared to their smaller cousin. I have not actually made a post on kinilaw na asuhos for the reason that most of the fish sold at the market here are frozen should I manage to find fresh asuhos I will definitely post a kinilaw. I do have the paksiw na asuhos on the archive. I wanted to have a crispy fried asuhos, I have made a similar post with this recipe using dilis. Click here.

The recipe is basically the same except that I use more coating on each fish for the reason that I wanted the fish crisp on the outside and succulent in the inside. It was good especially with a vinegar, garlic and chili dip. Here is the recipe it is straight forward try it and enjoy.


1 kilo big size asuhos
1/4 c. kalamansi juice
1 cup corn starch
salt and pepper
cooking oil

Cooking procedure:
