Karemeen fry


Although we would visit kerala once in 2 years, each visit reminded me of great food we would have. It usually would be 2 month summer vacation visiting grandparents , uncles , aunts and a lot of cousins, and our routine was of visiting some relative every other day.

Mallus are very hospitable people and love to make a table full of recipes to welcome guests, so did my relatives.


Along with all the other delicacies karemeen fry was a must, growing up we didn't have chance to have a lot of karemeen so whenever we were in kerala Karemeen was always on top of the list.
Now settling here in US, although being so far from home , by the advance in overseas export karemeen is so easily accessible :) best part all cleaned ready to go.

I still remember when my hubby had come to see me for the first time, bride-hunting and was asked if I know to cook, my mom smartly replied she sure does only doesn't like to clean fish!!

In response my father in law replied 'oh don't worry in US u will get fish all cleaned up' :)


so here is my recipe.


what u need:
karemeen ; 4-6
turmeric: 1 teaspoon
chilly pwd: 1 teaspoonb
black pepper pwd: 1 teaspoon
lemon juice: 1 tablespoon
oil: 2 tablespoons
salt to taste

mix all the pwd elements to a thick paste , make cuts on the fish and apply the paste to the fish.
marinate for 1 hr.
Heat a pan with 2 tablespoons of oil, fry the fish well each side ,till crispy and done.

Serve with hot rice.
