Nigerian Fish rolls ingredients:
 For the Fish rolls dough/pastry:*350 grams Flour*100 grams margarine*1 raw egg

    just tried this, it was really nice but i found that the salt in the dough was too much, and i didn't use all the half tablespoon, is it possible you made a mistake and wrote table spoon instead of teaspoon…… apart from that it was really yummy. reminded me of primary school days when i buy this outside…..thanks

      Thanks for your feedback dearie.As for the salt, mine wasn't salty, but since all salts are not made the same way, I bet I'll have to reduce the one in the recipe to suit most palate.Thanks for the insight.

      You can spice it up by marinating with your spice of choice before frying the fish.

      i was thinking you may not need to spice up the fish, cos somehow over spiced fish may just make you get tired of eating it….but a lil salt and pepper on is ok though

      If the fish is going to be used for this fish roll recipe, she can marinate it with mashed seasoning cube without over spicing.
