Fried Salmon With Green Masala

fried salmon with green masala

This is another of those salmon experiments we liked. Recently we started buying Salmon from Costco. It is quite cheaper there compared to Whole Foods (where we do all our grocery shopping). I buy a big piece, cut into smaller pieces and freeze them into individual bags. Some days I just make this dish and a salad for dinner.

Aayi prepares this green fish using Mackerel (bangda) or king fish (Ishwan/Visonu/Surmai) or some other fish available in India. I add a little bit of mint if I have it on hand. This is Ishaan’s favorite fish dish.

Ingredients:
1 lb salmon
6-7 strands of coriander leaves
7-8 leaves of mint (optional)
2 green chillies
1 tea spn chopped ginger
1 tea spn chopped garlic
2 tbl spns lemon juice
Oil
2 tbl spn rice flour
1 tbl spn sooji
Salt

Method:
Cut Salmon in 2 x 2 inch pieces.  Make a smooth paste of coriander leaves(you can also include a handful of mint leaves), green chillies, ginger, garlic, lemon juice, salt. Apply the paste to fish pieces and leave it refrigerator for few hours.
Heat a tava and spread some oil. On a plate, mix rice flour and sooji. Roll the fish pieces in rice flour-sooji mixture. Shallow fry on hot tava till the fish is cooked through.
Serve hot with lemon wedges.

Serves: 2-3
Preparation time : 20mins

I want to try this for my kids so bought a small fillet of Salmon from Whole Foods.

But the fillet has skin on one side. Did you buy a skinless fillet or did you take out the skin before making the bite size pieces?

Nice recipe. I would encourage you to check the label on fish and avoid farm raised salmon and tilapia. The diet fed to these fish produce harmful ratios of omega 6 to omega 3 fatty acids. Stores like Costco and Sams club do not tell the country of origin of farm raised fish. Avoid farm raised fish from China. Google “farm raised fish harmful
effects”.
