Lusog Notes

This Cashew Crusted Fish With Sautéed Spinach recipe is high in vitamin A which helps protect one from infections and promotes normal growth and development.

Chef's Tip

Oil that is too hot will burn the crust instantly with the fish still raw, while oil that is still cold will make the crusted fish oily and soggy. To check if the oil is hot enough, drop a pinch of bread crumbs into the oil. Bubbles should form around the bread crumbs. If no bubbles appear, the oil is too cold. On the other hand, if there is furious bubbling and oil starts to smoke, the oil is too hot.
