Salmon Fish - TADKA

       Recently i noticed that we rarely buy Salmon. Once there was a time when Salmon was the only fish we used to buy, as if it was the only one fish which we were known to.  And i always kept it a point to keep  trying out different recipes so that we don't get DONE with that particular fish.
Now we buy fresh catfish from the market and make a regular Kerala Style Fish Fry , it is way little Adya loves to have her fish, and yea also to mention she is a HUGE fan of Shrimp / Prawns.

Before Adya was born or may be until she started on her asking food on her taste , it was either Chicken or Mutton at home on weekends. Now we mostly have a request by the little lady.
Knowing about the healthy reasons of Salmon , i wasn't so keen on leaving it behind. So , this time it was Salmon again.


I had been keeping hold of a recipe that i happened to read in a popular malayalam magazine. I have been eyeing on that for so long , and  had to give it a try. Its pretty simple preparing this , frying and then tossing it in the masala. I served it with a Simple Dal Fry , and Green Chutney
