We usually include a good amount of fish in our family diet. You can browse through popular seafood recipes like ‘Indian Salmon Salad’, ‘Tarli Fry’ or ‘Prawns Pulao’. We like fried fish, but too much of it is not good for health. So I make fish curry which is healthy. Also even though the fish pieces get eaten quickly the curry can be used for subsequent meals. My dogs help with finishing the curry, but they too prefer fried fish. 😉
Fried fish can be made crispy by applying semolina, rice flour or white flour. I have used corn flour in this recipe. These fish are shallow fried, yet they are very tasty and as crispy as deep fried ones.
Here I have used Indian Salmon but you can use King Fish or Mackerel. Serve these fried pieces with Rassam Rice.
Equipment and Utensils
Nonstick Frying Pan
Flat wooden spoon
4 absorbent papers
300 grams (2 medium) Indian Salmon (Ravas) Fish clean and cut into pieces
3 tablespoons Vegetable Oil
2 tablespoons Corn Flour
3 teaspoons Kashmiri Red Chili Powder
1 teaspoon Ginger Garlic Paste
1 teaspoon Salt
2 teaspoons Garam Masala Powder
1 teaspoon Turmeric Powder
Juice of 2 Lemons
Put all ingredients mentioned under ‘To Marinate’ label in a large bowl.
Mix well to form a thick paste; use 2 teaspoons of water to form the paste.
If lemons are very juicy then there’s no need to add extra water.
Now add fish pieces to this paste mix.
Mix well so that all pieces are coated well with the paste.
Keep them for marinating for a minimum of 20 minutes.
Now add oil in a frying pan and keep it on medium high heat.
When oil is hot, arrange all fish pieces properly.
Fry from one side until that side is properly cooked.
It will take 2 to 3 minutes.
Now flip the pieces and fry the other side.
Then remove the fried fish pieces and keep them carefully on absorbent papers.
Serve hot with this quick recipe of Sambar Rice.
