The Simple Fish Fry

In the coastal areas, fish is a very popular item in meals. Not just fresh fish but dry fish also is a favorite along the Andhra coast. A lot of people have an aversion for its smell though.

In this post I will give you the recipe to a simple fish fry. This is the easiest recipe ever. My mom-in-law once made this for me and when you make it you will also know why I just love it.

Preperation time: 10 mins

Marination time: 45 mins

Cooking: 20 mins

Serves: 2

You will need:

Fish cut into 1 inch pieces – 4 to 5 pieces (I used pomfret)
Ginger Garlic paste – ¾ tbspn
Chilli powder – 1 tspn (If u want it spicier add a little more)
Salt – to taste
Lemon and Coriander leaves for garnishing.

Rub the salt and ginger garlic paste well to the fish pieces and leave them covered to marinate for about 45 minutes.


Shallow fry the fish pieces, in a non-stick pan with the lid, for 5 minutes on each side.
Sprinkle coriander and a few drops of lemon and serve hot. You can serve it with chilli sauce or mint chutney.

You must be thinking I forgot to add some more ingredients in the recipe. Well, that’s what I thought when my mom-in-law first told me how to make it. But it is as simple as it sounds. Now you know why I call it ‘The Simple Fish Fry.’

Note: Cook it on slow flame to make sure the fish does not burn.
If you want you can also deep fry the fish pieces instead of shallow frying.
