Prep time: quarter-hour
Cook dinner time: 10 minutes
2 skinless, boneless white fish fillets, approx. 140g/5oz every (any white fish will do, however I like to make use of cod loins)

½ teaspoon paprika
ghee, for deep-frying
1 teaspoon psyllium husk powder
salt flakes, salt and floor white pepper
small handful of recent flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped, to garnish
lemon wedges, to serve
70g (2½oz) mayonnaise
15g (½oz) small capers, finely chopped

Working rapidly, dip the fish into the batter and permit any extra batter to run off.
Rigorously decrease the fish into the ghee.
Spoon the recent ghee excessive of the fish as it’s deep-frying, then gently flip the fish over.
Frying fish like this gained’t take very lengthy (roughly two to 3 minutes, however thicker items could require barely longer cooking instances).
As soon as the fish is golden on all sides, take away with a slotted spoon and place on the paper-towel-lined plate.
Serve instantly to make sure the batter stays crispy, seasoned with salt flakes.
Scatter over some chopped parsley and serve with lemon wedges and the tartare sauce.
