Ingredients

  • 1 large onion
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup white rice, uncooked

Helpful hints

  • Choose any white fish for this recipe.
  • Cumin is a spice known to aid digestion but can be strong if one is not accustomed to consuming it. Adjust amount to your taste
  • If desired, accents to the Fish Fry with Seasoned Rice include: white onion soaked in vinegar with black pepper or tahini sauce (2 tablespoons tahini with 1–2 teaspoons white vinegar, black pepper and cumin).
  • For a lower protein diet divide fish into 6 portions instead of 4; protein is reduced to 17 grams for the meal.
