Spicy Pan Fried Fish


Smoked spices and fish

Fish cooked with smoked spices

This is an easy recipe that can be made in minutes. I do like to marinate the fish for an hour or two but this is not necessary. Twenty minutes in the marinade should do just fine.

As you can see from the picture, I served this in a pan fried chapati with salad, raita and hot sauce. It was fantastic. for ease, you could just serve the fish on its own with a little rice or French bread.

This is the perfect after work meal.
