Place a freshly squeezed lemon juice or sprinkle the kingfish steaks with vinegar. Sprinkle salt and pepper over the fish.
Heat about a cup of oil in a frying pan on high heat.
When the oil is hot carefully slip the fish into the pan. You may have to use a flat spatula to keep the fish from breaking.
Fry on each side for about 3 minutes, then turn over and fry for another 3 minutes.
Remove excess oil by draining the fried fish steaks in a paper towel.
Serving Suggestions: Serve as a side dish with boiled potatoes and a good home-cooked meal.
