Sea Bass in Spicy Indian Batter

Sea Bass in Spicy Indian Batter

This fish dish was created by me a few days ago and is really easy, like all the other recipes, and
it tasted absolutely delicious. Give it a go and let me know how you got on.


4 sea bass fillets with skin on
1 tblesp garlic & ginger paste
1 dried red chilli
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp salt
2 tblesp gram flour
a little water
oil for frying


In a pestal and mortar, smash up the chilli
add the garlic and ginger paste, paprika, salt and mix
add the gram flour and about 2 tblesp water, mix to a thin consistency, a bit like normal fish batter.
taste the mixture to make sure the seasoning is correct, if you want it hotter add a little chilli powder.

Put the fillets on a chopping board, skin side down, rub the mixture on to the flesh side of the fish, making sure all the flesh has an even coating.

Leave to marinade for about 10-20mins

Heat the oil in a frying pan
add the fish, with the batter side down first and fry for about 4 mins or until the coating is crisp.
turn the fish over and fry the skin side for about 3mins.

serve with a nice tomato and rocket salad with a lemon wedge

Lovely and enjoy
