Masala Pomfret - PAN Fried Fish

This is a simple Pomfret Fish recipe which is tasty but healthy

Preparation Time: - 20 min
Cooking Time: - 8~10 min
Servings: - 2 persons

  1. 400 gm Pomfret fish (2 in no.)
  2. 2 tsp Ginger Garlic Paste
  3. 1 tbsp Lemon juice
  4. 1 tsp Turmeric Powder
  5. 3~4 black pepper corns
  6. 2 tsp Kashmiri Red Chili powder
  7. ½ tsp Coriander powder
  8. 2 tsp Fennel powder
  9. ½ tbsp. Garam Masala
  10. Few coriander leaves for garnishing
  11. 2 whole green chili for garnishing
  12. 3 tbsp vegetable oil ( I used Mustard oil as I am Bengali and I preferred)
  13. Salt to taste.

  1. Wash and clean the fish thoroughly, pat dry them.
  2. Take a bowl and mix Ginger garlic paste, salt, turmeric powder and lemon juice. Make a paste and rub thoroughly on the pieces of fish on both sides.
  3. Keep it marinated about 15 minutes.
  4. Take coriander powder, red chili powder, salt, fennel powder and garam masala. Mix them and apply on the fish.
  5. Take a non-stick pan and heat oil by turning the burner on high.
  6. When the oil starts smoking put the pieces of Pomfret one by one. Reduce the heat by turning the burner to medium.
  7. Fry both sides by flipping till the color changes to brownish.
  8. Crush the pepper corns and sprinkle them.
  9. Pour little bit of lemon juice on the fried fish.
  10. Garnish with coriander leaves and green chili. You can use lemon slices also.

Serve this starter with the sauce of your choice or mayonnaise.

Please note the following:-

  • You can use molten butter instead of oil. The aroma will be better and the dish will be healthier.
  • The oil needs to be really hot before you put the fish in it. Otherwise they will stick to the frying pan.
  • Fry the Fish with caution. Since this is a delicate fish you may burn or over fry. Flip immediately once one side is done.
As always please feel free to comment, criticize and seek if any help is required. I am all ears.
