15 minutes.

Put 2 fishes in the pan. Fry for 5 minutes and then take out one and turn the other one. Also put in the third fish. Now fry for 5 minutes. The fish that you turned must be ready now so take it off while turning the other one. Also put in the fish which was fried from one side only in the pan. Fry them for 5 minutes and all the three fishes are fried now.
