Pomfret Recheado (pomfrets Stuffed With Rechaedo Masala)

I have my family over this weekend and we are eating up a storm. Prawns in a spicy marinade and stuffed recheado Pomfrets. Recheado Masala is a Goan staple and a favourite in our family. Rechead means to stuff, as you will see from my recipes, I love to masala and stuff fish and vegetables. I think I might have professed my love for pomfrets a long time ago as well :)
The recipe for this masala yields quite a bit. Put in a glass jar it keeps for at least two months in the fridge because of the vinegar I assume.
Please try this recipe, I hope you like it :)
