How to Make Indian Salmon Fish Fry with Indian Spices:
Wash and clean fish pieces. Drain out water completely. Wipe each fish piece carefully with a soft kitchen towel.
In a wide bowl, mix red chilli powder, pepper powder, turmeric powder and salt. Sprinkle 1 tbsp lemon juice or vinegar and make a thick paste. Do not add water.
Apply this paste evenly on both the sides of each fish piece. Cover and keep aside for one hour.
Heat 1 tbsp oil in a non-stick frying pan (tawa). Reduce the heat to medium. Arrange marinated fish pieces (4 or 8 fish pieces at a time, depending on the size of the frying pan) and shallow fry till golden brown on both the sides.
Sprinkle remaining 1 tbsp oil when turning them over. Approximate frying time for each side is 10 minutes on medium to low heat.
Gently remove fried fish pieces with a flat spatula. Drain on paper towels to absorb extra oil.
Serve with rice / boiled tapioca. Decorate with lemon wedges, onion rings and tomato wedges (optional).
