  2. Pat dry, and season with some dill, black pepper, and salt if desired.
  3. Coat each cube with a light layer of corn starch and dust the excess off.
  4. Heat up oil to medium high in a pan.
  5. Once oil is hot enough (when you start to see a bit of smoke) slowly place in the fish cubes one by one. This allows the pan to not cool down too fast. Careful not to get that hot oil on your hands!
