This is a easy fish fry with the usual Indian spices shallow fried to perfection. Snook is the smaller version of the Barracuda. It has one center bone running through to its tail with small bones on either sides of the finger.The local supermarkets have fish filleted but the choice of fish is limited. We bought this fish at a local fish store in Findon and below is a recipe for the same
Fish : 500 gm Snook Sliced (Or you could use any fish)
Turmeric: 1/2 tsp
Red Chilli powder : 3/4 tsp
Kashmiri chilli powder : 1/2 tsp (optional)
Coriander powder : 1/2 tsp
Tamarind pulp : 3 tsp
Curry leaves : few
Salt to taste
Oil : 1/2 cup for shallow frying
Marinate the cleaned fish with the above spice powders, curry leaves and tamarind pulp with salt
Keep aside for 30-45 mins
Heat oil in a pan , shallow fry the fish pieces on low medium for about 2-3 mins on each side.
Fish must be cooked through to have a soft texture.If you cook the fish longer it will taste rubbery and lose the texture.
