Surmai or King Fish is the tastiest and meatiest of all fish. Since, they have less or no bones, it has become our recent favourite of fish. Also, they do not have that typical fish smell which most fishes have. The recipe below is for 4 fish steaks marinated with curry leaves (the secret to the taste and aroma of this recipe) and cooked with 2 tsp of olive added at the time of marination.
What You Need:
Surmai Steaks 4
Oil 2 tsp
Turmeric Powder 1 tsp
Coriander Powder 1 tbsp
Red Chili Powder 1 tbsp
Sambhar Powder 1 tbsp
Salt To Taste
Curry Leaves 9-10 finely chopped
Water 1-2 tbsp
Lemon Juice 1 big
Ginger Garlic Paste 1 tbsp
Steps To Make:
Take a flat plate and put all the ingredients together.
Mix everything with fingers except fish to a smooth paste.
Wash fish steaks in water 2-3 times.
Rub the marinate on both sides of the fish.
Marinate for 30 minutes.
Heat a non-stick pan.
Once pan is hot, lower the flame and put the stakes on flat pan to cook.
Cook each side for 8-9 minutes.
Do not increase the flame.
Serve with lime juice and onions.
Enjoy with loads of lemon wedges and onions !!!
