Kingfish (Visvon or Surmai) is marinated with spices and herbs for few minutes and then coated with semolina, after which they are shallow fried to crisp.
Fish and me have a unique bonding. You may say, I cannot live without fish, even for a day. They say like mom like son, my son too gets his appetite when there’s at least a piece of some fish in his Thali(Plate).
For past few days, I am constantly looking for kingfish here in my local fish market and couldn’t find any, and today to my surprise, got one . Must say, fish prices are soaring up day by day but I just can’t help it when I see some fresh fish . Normally I fry my fish in Goan style, but few days back, I received Mexican Chili Chipotle spice from Sprig just to try and had prepared Chicken Chipotle Pulav which turned out really good.
Pretty happy with this spice and ever since, trying it out in my daily recipes.
Normally I shallow fry kingfish in Goan style, but just for change, tried out Mexican Chili Chipotle Masala in my fish fry. Added just a teaspoon of this spice along with other masalas(Spices) and it did marvellous job. This is one of the easiest recipes of fish without any mess and also the tasty one.
So, try it out !!! 🙂

Coat the marinated fish pieces well with semolina on both the sides and place them on the skillet apart from each other.
Keep the heat on medium. Drizzle a tablespoon of oil more over the fish and let the fish fry for about 5 minutes.
