Happy day dear Hivers! Today I join this initiative of the friend @zord189 and I share with you the preparation of my favorite breakfast Arepas grilled with Fried Fish, a very nutritious and delicious breakfast to enjoy as a family 😉
I currently live in Cumana-Venezuela, a city in the eastern part of the country where it is very typical to have breakfast with fried fish, salad and the traditional grilled corn flour arepa. Today we did not have vegetables for the salad at home, but here we go with the ingredients and the preparation of fried fish and arepas.
Preparation: in a bowl add water and salt to taste, mix until integrated and then add the corn flour, we proceed to knead with our hands until we achieve a soft and moldable texture. Now with my hands form balls of dough and flatten, trying to give a round shape, sometimes when I'm in a hurry I don't pay much attention and the arepitas are deformed hahaha. Then place in the aripo or grill and cook over medium heat, once the bottom part is cooked, turn them over to cook the other side. In my family it is customary to know if the arepas are ready: take them with your hands and give them some percussion taps hahaha when the sound is closed they are ready hahaha. Then butter them and reserve.
Preparation: Place the fresh fish in a bowl and add salt. Today at our breakfast we will eat a fish called Cataco (typical in the region), the amount of salt is considerable because it is what accentuates the flavor of the fish. It is important to place the salt on the outside and make small slits to season it on the inside. After this, in a pan with hot oil we proceed to fry, here at home we like fried fish quite toasted so we let it cook for a long time over medium heat. 😉👍
Once our fish is ready and toasted, we serve it accompanied by its respective arepa and a delicious coffee. Now to enjoy an excellent family breakfast, thank God! ❤️
Thank you for reading my publication, for allowing me to participate and share this delicious breakfast with you. God bless you! 😘
