Salmon Fish Fry
Salmon is my favourite variety of fish it taste delicious when it is fried and also good for health rich in Omega 3. I like the colour of fish, before marriage my amma often cook fried fish for us. But, we get only dam fish in our amma's place if we need to buy sea fish then have to go Fish market. My Hubby was born and raise in Coastal place, but he doesn't like to eat fish. He use to choose the good taste fish for me from our fish market here and sometimes cook fish fry for me but he never tasted even a single bit piece. After marriage only i started to eat and cook the Prawns n Crabs, before that i never seen it in our mom's place. This week is Meen Vaaram (Fish Week) in my house going to cook different fish on daily, today am planning to make Butter fish kulambu first time in my life.
My Hubby brought me different variety of fish for this week, yesterday i cooked the Salmon fish fry tried from my Sister-in-law Sridevi's recipe in her blog and it tasted very good. My Great Chef Hubby and SIL are good in cooking all kinds of foods esp Seafood. Both of them showed interest in cooking from their childhood that time itself they discovered new recipes in their kitchen still it is continuing. I like all the recipes from my SIL's blog esp this Salmon Fish Fry and Rasgulla, don't miss to check out in her space. Here, is the recipe for the Salmon Fish Fry as follows,
1.Salmon steaks - 2 pieces
2.Red Chilli Powder - 3 tsp (I use kashmiri red chilli powder it won't taste too strong, you can use accor to ur preference)
3.Salt as reqd
4.Turmeric powder - 1 tsp
5.Canola Oil - approx 2 tbsp
6.Curry leaves few strings
1.Clean the Salmon Steaks, add the chilli and turmeric powders, curry leaves, salt and 1 tsp oil ( i use little bit of oil while marinating the fish, it helps to stick the masalas to the fish you can also avoid the oil).
2.Leave it to marinate for 1 - 2 hrs and also you can store the marination in air tight box keep it inside the freezer can use it easily for any time.
3.After Marination, heat the 1 tbsp of oil in non-stick small frying pan and fry the marinated Salmon fish on all sides can add the oil if required while frying.(adding curry leaves while frying gives nice flavour and the crispy curry leaves taste good with fish fry)
4.Now the Tender and Succulent Salmon fish Fry is ready to serve hot with hot Rasam rice. The best accompaniment for Fish fry is with Rasam Rice, taste very good i always enjoy fish fry with this combination.
