It is a simple fish fry but it tastes awesome. The taste of this dish depends on the fish you use. Use kingfish for best taste. You can also use any white flesh fish. You can also pan fry it with 2 to 3 tbsp oil. If you are a health conscious person, then try this pan-fried method. And also add some chopped curry leaves while stir-frying, because it enhances the flavor to this dish.
Furthermore, I would like to share some of my suggestions for making perfect kingfish fry. Firstly, clean the fish with lemon and salt water because this step helps to get rid of the fish smell. Then heat the oil over medium heat otherwise the fish will not cook properly. Finally, if you have any leftover marinade, then store it in the ziplock bag in the freezer for another meal.
