Stuffed Pomfret

On the weekend I like to go to the market to see what my fisher lady has. Today, she didn't disappoint! Beautiful pomfrets were waiting for me as I walked past and I couldn't help but buy them. They cost a pretty penny let me tell you, but it was certainly worth it. Just look at that picture, does it not make your mouth water!?!? Yumm!!!!
So, as I enjoy my Saturday feast with my family, I hope you are eating something yummy and awesome as well. Please go buy some lovely fish and try out this recipe! It will be worth it!

The Happy Cook's Secret Indian Recipe !

Preparation Time: 
20 Minutes
Cooking Time: 
20 Minutes


1 Lovely Pomfret, slit for stuffing
2 large Onions, chopped into medium dice
1 Large Tomato, medium dice
2 Green Chillies, chopped fine
10 cloves of Garlic, chopped
a small piece Ginger, Chopped
1/2 tsp Chilly Powder
1/2 tsp of Turmeric powder (Haldi)
Salt to taste
Oil for frying
Make shallow slits on the pomfret on both sides. I had my fisher monger slit it for stuffing. Wash and apply a pinch of salt.
Now fry all the ingredients till they make a fragrant masala. Remember to season it with salt.
Let this masala cool, the stuff the pomfret. If there is any stuffing left over I like to rub it on the outsides as well.
Fry it in a pan on medium heat. Let the skin get a lovely golden before turning it over.
Serve hot with lime wedges and Enjoy!
