I am a seafood lover. I love fishes of all varieties, with bones or without bones, doesn’t matter. I have the enormous patience to remove each bone from the fish and relish it to the core. Prawns and crabs are my all time favorites. I have never cooked prawns or crabs so far, but I thoroughly love eating them. On my recent trip to Goa, I had a great time digging into some awesome Goan Prawn Curry, crab masala, squids. Heavenly!

My exposure to eating fish dates back to my childhood days in Asansol where our neighbors would make fish everyday for their meal. Hop into to anyone’s house, and you will find fish being fried in mustard oil. Its nostalgic! I acquired my fish eating skills from then.

At home, everybody prefers the non bones variety of fishes as its the easiest to eat. Cooking any type of seafood is the easiest. It takes less than 10-15 mins to cook unlike meat.

This recipe is very easy and tastes fantastic.


1/2 kg fish, cut, cleaned and drained (I have used Black Pomfret)

Dry Spice Rub:

1 tsp cumin,
3 tsp whole coriander,
1 tbsp pepper corns,
1- 2 cloves,
1 cinnamon sticks,
1 tsp turmeric powder,
Salt as per taste

Wet Spice Rub:
2-3 green chillies,
1 inch ginger,
6 garlic pods,

1/2 lemon juice


  1. Dry roast all the dry ingredients. Once cooled, grind it into a fine powder.
  2. Grind all the wet ingredients and set it aside.
  3. Marinate the fish by using the wet ingredients and about 2-3 tbsp of the dry spice rub. Add salt as per taste and leave it for about 2 hours.
  4. Shallow fry on a non-stick pan until cooked. 
  5. Serve hot.
I serve this as a starter. You could pair this up with a fish gravy dish served along with steamed rice.
