Chillo Frito (Red Snapper) Dried oregano Salt and black pepper Garlic powder Adobo seasoning Lemon All-purpose flour Cornstarch Vegetable oil

Season the fish with oregano, salt, pepper, garlic, adobo, and lemon (or vinegar). Make sure that the marinade penetrates inside the fish. 

Sprinkle the flour and corn starch lightly over the fillets to coat them evenly on both sides. 

Add enough oil to coat the bottom and heat over medium-high in a frying pan. Once the oil is hot, add the fish fillets and cook, flipping once until they are browned all over.

When the fillets are golden brown and well cooked, remove them from the frying pan and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain the excess oil.

The fried fish can be served with fresh salad, fried green plantains, yucca, rice, etc.
