Directions 11 steps | 50 Minutes

Step 1

Measure and prep all ingredients.

Step 2

Prepare the potatoes. In a pot, add the diced potatoes and fill the pot with cold water until the potatoes are covered. Bring the pot to a boil and then turn it down to a simmer. Cook potatoes until softened about 30-45 minutes. 

Step 3

While the potatoes are boiling, prepare the red snapper filet. Season the red snapper with salt on both sides. In a non-stick pan, sear the red snapper on both sides until golden brown and fully cooked. 

Step 4

Shred the red snapper filet. Set aside. 

Step 5

Form the red snapper bites. Once the potatoes are done, drain them and transfer them to a large bowl. Add the shredded red snapper, diced red bell peppers, chopped chives and ½ cup of bread crumbs. 

Step 6

Mix until well combined and roll the mixture into small tight dense balls. 

Step 7

Prepare to dredge the red snapper bites. In one shallow bowl, add the all-purpose flour. In a second shallow bowl, crack the eggs and whisk until well combined. In a third shallow bowl, add the remaining one cup of breadcrumbs. 

Step 8

Dredge the red snapper bites by rolling the balls in the all-purpose flour.

Step 9

Then dip the balls into the eggs.

Step 10

Finish by coating the balls in the breadcrumbs. 

Step 11

Preheat the deep fryer or a heavy-bottomed pot with 3-4 inches of oil to 350°F. Fry the dredged red snapper bites for 5-8 minutes or until golden brown. Serve and enjoy!
