Fish Coconut Fry

Fish Coconut Fry

This is a simple and easy fish fry recipe which you can do with any fish fillet.If you are tried of the usual fish fry try adding in fried onions and roasted coconut. It adds a unique flavor and taste which is pleasing to the palette. You can try different versions like adding coconut paste to the marinade and fry/bake the fish. Pairs with plain rice or fried rice.

Ingredients

Fish fillet- 3
( I used tilapia fillet)

1) To marinate the fish
Turmeric powder- 1/3 tsp
Pepper powder- 1/3 tsp
Chilly powder- 1 tsp
Ginger garlic paste- 1 1/2 tsp
Lemon juice- 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Coconut oil for frying

Onion sliced- 1 medium
Green chilly -1 
sliced ginger- 1 tsp
Coconut shredded- 3 tsp
Fennel powder- 1/2 tsp
Coriander leaves- a little

Clean and cut fish into small pieces. Mix all ingredients listed under to marinate the fish into a paste and apply over the fish pieces and set aside for ten minutes. Fry the fish till it is done and drain the excess oil and keep aside. In the pan add two tsps of oil(use the same oil used to fry fish drain off the excess oil) add onions, sliced ginger and green chilly and saute till changes color. Add coconut and continue to fry till onions and coconut turns golden brown. Add fennel powder, a pinch of chilly powder and coriander leaves. Add the fried fish and gently toss till all the fish is coated with the masala. Serve with rice.
