Frying Pomfret Fish

I recently bought fresh pomfret fish from the market.

I'm not new in cooking pomfret; however, it is my first to fry them.

If you're wondering how to cook or what pomfret fish tastes like, read on to find out.

I didn't know what to do with my pomfret fish when I bought them. I just thought it would be fun at home to try a new dish. It's a good thing too since pomfret fish tastes good. The flesh is soft to eat. However when you cook them, your neighbors would know that you are cooking fish!

I first tried cooking pomfret fish in sour broth. That recipe turned out well. I will do that again. Now, I'd like to try and fry them for a change. Fried fish goes very well with my mung bean soup recipe, anyway. I'll cook that one too for our dinner tonight.

Let's begin!

Ingredients in frying pomfret fish:
- pomfret fish, seasoned with salt
- ginger, crushed

Some fish have stronger stench than others. I find that pomfret fish has a rather strong fish odor. Ginger, in this case is a great odor eliminator. Try this next time you're cooking fish with strong fish-y smell. I promise you it works!
- cooking oil

1. Heat up the pan.
