Salmon Fry / Meen Varuval | Easy Indian Fish Recipes

This is a simple and easy recipe for a south indian style fish fry. The ingredients are those which are readily available in the pantry. A little planning and preparation for marination the previous day or earlier the same day is all the effort that is needed for this tasty fish fry. Back home grandma used to make this with king fish. I tried making the same rub for salmon. Salmon tastes great without much masala or spices. It was after making tandoori salmon once that I realised that salmon would be excellent with Indian spices.
Ingredients:
Serves - 2
Salmon - 12 oz ~ 350 gms
Chilli powder - 1 tsp (I used 1-1/2 tsp of Kashmiri chilli powder)
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp
Salt - to taste
Oil - 1/2 tsp
Method:
Mix all the ingredients for marination in a bowl / ziploc bag. Add the salmon and mix until well coated. Keep covered in an airtight bowl for a minimum of 6 hours in the refrigerator. Heat oil in a shallow pan and add the salmon piece. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side. Serve.
