This is a simple fish fry recipe and takes me back to my childhood – as my mother use to make fish this way.
Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 15 min
Things you need:
Garlic pods—chopped … 4-7
Ginger—chopped … 1inch piece
Lemon or lime juice … 1/2 to 1. Also could use tamarind juice to bring the tangy-sour flavor
Cooking oil … few tbsp
Corn/Semonlina flour …cup
Garam masala, Salt, Chili powder … as per taste
1. Take the chopped ginger and garlic in a pestle and mortar and grind it into a paste. I prefer to do it this way, rather than a blender as the blender makes it too smooth and it looses its chunks and personality. Also, the paste retains its ginger/garlic flavor, rather than the flavor getting drained in the juices.
2. Cut the fish (in my case, I have used Salmon) into think strips. I have also used other white fish such as tilapia, panga, Sea bass, etc and the results were great. Then mix the ginger garlic paste + squeezed lemon along with salt and masala/chili and let the fish marinate for some time.
3. Once the fish is marinated. Please take the flour in a plate. Dip the fish in the flour so as to coat it overall and fry it in a grill pan. As it is a fish, you wont need more than 10-15 mins to cook it. I usually serve this with steamed rice.
