Goan Fried Fish In Sour Hot Sauce

We love our fried fish in Goa. As I've said before, we need a little something extra with every meal, preferably fried :) This fried fish recipe meets all the requirements of an awesome fried dish. It is hot and sour and used to marinate a nice thick steak of Surmai, Yum Yum Yum!
Please give this a try if you have some fish to fry and want to try something new. The recipe makes a little extra sauce, so you can freeze it for another day.
