How to Make Simple Fried Paint:

Put the oil to heat and, to bread the fish, mix the wheat flour with the cornmeal. Pass the seasoned fillets in this mixture and squeeze lightly, to stick the ingredients to the fillets and get a firm crust.

Tip: Cornmeal helps to get a crunchier and more dry breading, so don't forget to use it!

When the oil is very hot, add it frying a few fillets at a time. Let it brown, remove to a plate with absorbent paper, and fry the remaining painted fillets. Do this until all the painted fillets are fried.
