Flying fish is a fish found in the Caribbean waters. It’s rather like a herring.

Scale, bone and fillet it, season down between the flesh with minced onion, hot pepper, salt and pepper and parsley.

Dip in egg and breadcrumbs and fry quickly on both sides till cooked; do not over fry.

Grease a casserole or open dish; arrange half of the fish in this, followed by a layer of onion, tomato and hard boiled egg.

Repeat another layer of everything.

Make a brown gravy and pour over this.

Top with fluffed potato.

Bake in oven 350º-400º for 30 – 40 minutes.
