Salmon Fish Fry with Indian Spices | Salmon Fry | Fish Fry

Salmon fish fry, an easy and tasty fish fry with indian spices. You can serve this salmon fish fry as starters or as side dish for your rice,either way it has wonderful flavor and taste absolutely delicious.Before marriage, in our home, we had bought mostly vanjaram meen(king fish), the main reason was it doesn't have much pin bones and of course we love the taste of that fish,so generally i hesitate to try any other fish. Here in US, even the fish we got in the name of "King fish" doesn't taste like the one we used to get in India.So after trying various fishes, salmon and red snapper only suit to our taste and this fry is our favorite. You can do this fry with any fish,so far i have tried with red snapper,salmon & tilapia and all turned out very well.Now let's see the procedure for making this yummy fry.

  1. I tried it last night and it came out delicious. I didn't marinate it for two hours but only 15min and it was still good. Thanks for the recipe :)

    1. Thanks Manjusha, Glad you like it and share your feedback here. You're awesome!!!

  2. Nice recipe. Any suggestions on avoiding fish smell during and after cooking? I am planning to cook it first time for my child and my husband can’t stand the smell.

    1. Thanks Jyothi, using good amount of ginger garlic paste,curry leaves and lemon will subside the fishy smell and gives more flavor.Also try to use fresh boneless cut piece, that has less smell.

    1. No, i never used it before, always prefer coconut oil for fish fry because of its flavor.

  4. Tried the recipe today and it was delicious. I used unsalted butter instead of oil and it was really nice.
