Spicy Pan Fried Pompano
Buttery mild white pompano spiced with turmeric, red chili powder, ginger, garlic, coated with rice flour and pan fried to make the flavor packed fried fish.
- 1 large Pompano cut into 1 inch steaks
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
- 1/2 tablespoon ginger grated
- 1/2 tablespoon garlic grated
- 1/2 tablespoon red chili powder medium hot
- 1/4 teaspoon garam masala
- 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
- 1/2 cup rice flour
- 1 tablespoon cooking oil
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
Wash the pompano steaks thoroughly and drain all the water. Apply lime juice evenly and set aside for 5 mins. Drain all the lime water out. Lime water will help take away any fishy smell.
Mix together ginger, garlic, red chili powder, turmeric and salt. Apply it evenly to the fish steaks.
Add a pinch of salt, turmeric, red chill powder and garam masala to the rice flour and mix well.
Heat a medium grilling pan and spread half tbsp of oil evenly. Roll the fish steaks individually in the rice flour, shake off any excess flour and arrange the fish on the pan. Apply the rest of the oil on top side of the fish using a brush. Cook each side uncovered on medium heat for 3-4 mins or until the fish looks golden brown and crispy.
Serve with lime wedges.
