Kerala style fish dishes are the most flavourful and delicious.One of the best things about having grown up in Kerala is that almost every other day I had enjoyed fish dishes, either as fried or as fish curry, that too catch of the day. We have an abundance of fish as we are surrounded by Indian Ocean and almost all non-veggies are die hard fans of fish. Our fish dishes are spicy, tangy and flavorful. You are guaranteed to lick the finger at the end of the meal. After having such flavourful sea food dishes for many years, I found the fish that are served in North American restaurants to be pretty bland. It took a while for me to get used to that. Well, honesty I am still not used to it and I seldom order fish. Usually in Kerala, fishes are either fried or they are added into curries and are served with rice, rotis, we have it with pretty much everything. There is yet another way of cooking whole fish, by slightly pan frying the fish, combining it with spicy coconut sauce and then wrapping it in a banana leaf, followed by slow cooking or steaming it. And Before i start want to tell u about this fish. Red snapper is a low-calorie, lean source of protein that is rich in selenium, vitamin A, potassium and omega-3 fatty acids. A diet that regularly incorporates these nutrients may significantly benefit your health by preventing serious medical conditions. Despite the potential health benefits, red snapper may contain mercury levels that make it unsafe for pregnant women and young children to eat more than a few times a month. Another surprising thing is the fish was caught by my husband. He is just found of this fish. So, Today i am sharing a recipe of Chemballi or Red snapper fish.
