Surmai (Kingfish) Pan Fried

Surmai (Kingfish) – 1 kg
Turmeric powder – 1/2 tsp
Chilli powder – 2 ½ tsp
Black Pepper corns – 1tsp
Garlic Cloves – 4-5
Onion – 1 big
Olive Oil or any Refined Oil – 4 tbsp
Salt as required
Mint Leaves or herbs – Only if you like

Clean the fish and sprinkle a pinch of turmeric powder and salt over it. Blend onion, garlic cloves, black pepper corns, turmeric powder, chilli powder and salt. Prepare a fine paste. Rub it all over the fish and keep side for around 10-15 mins.

In a deep fried pan pour refined/olive oil. Layered the fish into this and cover it with a lid. Cook in medium flames for around 10 min. Turn the fish in frequent intervals to get that brown color.

Place the fish into a plate with some layered paper napkins to remove any excess oil.  Move the fish into your serving plate and decorate with sliced tomato, green chilly, onions and coriander leaves.

Enjoy this with hot rice.
