Masala Fried Fish
This spicy and delicious red snapper dish is full of flavor; the fillets are coated with a mixture of spices and then shallow fried.
Prep Time: 15 minutes Cooking Time: 10 minutes Serves: 4
2 lbs. red snapper fillets (or preferred fish steaks), skinned and deboned
2 tsp. red chili powder
2 tsp. ground cumin
2 tsp. ground coriander
1 tsp. ground turmeric
1/2 tsp. garam masala
1/2 tsp. brown sugar
2 Tbsp. fresh lime or lemon juice
1 c. all purpose flour
1/4 c. extra light olive oil for shallow-frying
salt to taste
4 lime wedges
1 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
1. Place fillets on a large cutting board.
2. In a bowl, mix all the ingredients for the marinade. Rub into snapper and marinate for 15 minutes. Note: Besides turmeric’s health benefits, it also acts as a preservative.
3. On a flat plate, spread flour. Gently press both sides of the snapper onto the flour, coating it evenly.
4. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Shallow-fry fish for 10 minutes (about 5 minutes on each side, or until fish is cooked through).
5. Salt to taste. Squirt a few drops of lime juice on the snapper and garnish with cilantro. Serve with raita, rice, or pasta.
