flexcook's picture
This spicy and delicious red snapper dish is full of flavor; the fillets are coated with a mixture of spices and then shallow fried.
  Red snapper fillets 2 Pound, skinned and deboned (Preferred Fish Steaks)
  Red chili powder 2 Teaspoon
  Ground cumin 2 Teaspoon
  Ground coriander 2 Teaspoon
  Turmeric 1 Teaspoon
  Garam masala 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Brown sugar 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Lime juice/Lemon juice 2 Tablespoon
  All purpose flour 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Extra light olive oil 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs) (For Shallow Frying)
  Salt To Taste
  Lime wedges 4
  Chopped cilantro 1 Tablespoon

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.
