  • 2 pounds King Fish
  • Lemon juice or vinegar
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Oil for frying


  • 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.
