Fish Fry - Meen Fry

Serves 2 -3
  It was really nice to read all your comments about your family member's take on blogging.Thanks a ton guys :)When I told it to hubby he was very happy to know that there were many men out there who were in the same plight as him :)  
  Fish is something that I love right from childhood.My mom's from a coastal town so we almost had fish on every other day.In Germany fresh fish is a little on the expensive side.I love small fishes like Chala(Sardines),they taste simply awesome on frying.But we don't find small fishes here,we only find big ones.And the small ones that we find aren't even close in taste to the ones we find in India. Lachs(Salmon) is one variety that I love here,they are very fleshy and boneless.When my mom visited us,she liked it so much that she named them as 'Fish Cakes' :) One very good thing about Lachs is that it's full of omega 3 fatty acids,which is good for kids.As it's boneless I was able to give it to my little girl right from when she was 7 months old.This is a simple Fry that I prepare often,tastes yummy with rice & sambar ......

You'll Need:
Fish (Salmon) - 150g
Red Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Coriander powder - 3/4 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Cumin powder - 1/4 tsp
Fennel Powder - 1/4 tsp
Lemon Juice - 2 tsp
oil - 4 -5 tsp
Salt - as needed

-Clean the fish and chop into pieces. 
-Mix all the ingredients except the oil together to make a thick paste.
-Add the fish slices and mix them well so that they are well coated with the masala.
-Heat a pan and add the oil,when it heats up place the pieces of fish on the pan so that they don't overlap each other.
-On low to medium heat let them cook for 5 minutes,then turn them over and cook for another 5 minutes.Done !

Thanks for stopping by ! Happy Cooking !


  1. Love this fish fry, looks very very tempting and mouthwatering. love the bright color, perfect and yummy.

  2. The fish fry looks so inviting Reni :) They seem perfect!

  3. Ahh Reni pl pass me the fish cakes so I could have my lunch happily :))
    Cumin and fennel for fish fry is new to me but I guess my herd would like a variation from the regulars.

  4. perfectly fried the way you presented

  5. I ate too much of Salmon when I was in Norway and Denmark and when I came back we took a break from eating it. I also like the fish very much because its so easy to be cooked, in fact the fish by itself is flavorful and does not smell. Its expensive over here and I buy it once a while. Sardines are really cheap and I usually depend on our local catch.

    I did buy a piece few days ago and its sitting in the fridge. Will try out your recipe in this week. My other half eats fish all the time so I have to crack my head on what to do with it. Lovely Indian spicy flavors and one which will be hit with my other half.
