Bread crumbs as required
1-2 Egg whites (lightly beaten with 2 tbsp of water)
Oil for deep frying
1. In a food processor, process together fish fillets, garlic, paprika, pepper, mustard, oregano, rice flour Chinese salt, and salt.
2. When the mixture becomes smooth, transfer it onto the flat plate and spread evenly.
3. Place the plate in the microwave for just 1-2 mins. or in a steamer for just 2-3 mins. so that the mixture would get a little harder or stiff.
4. Then cut the mixture into nuggets shape using a knife or using a cookie cutter to give your favorite shape.
