Frontier Style Fried Fish
This is a simple recipe meant to highlight the natural flavors of freshwater trout but can be adapted for any type of white fish. It only uses a few ingredients and can be enjoyed with a pot of desi brewed chai on the side.
- 1 ½ pound fish fillet, preferably freshwater trout cleaned and sliced in 4 pieces lengthwise
- 1 tsp salt or to taste
- 2 tsp red chili powder
- 3/4 cup oil or as needed canola, vegetable or sunflower
Pat your fish fillet dry with a paper towel. Generously season it with salt and red chili powder and set aside to marinade for 15 minutes.
In a deep saucepan or wok, heat oil. When hot, carefully place the fish fillet in the wok with a slotted spoon and fry each side for about two minutes or until golden brown.
Drain on paper towels or newspaper.
Serve with naan and lime or lemon wedges.
