India/ Kerrela/Malabar fish fry

You can do this with any fish, but we used tuna steaks- yum!

For four people:

  • 4 tuna steaks
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1-2 tsp of chilli
  • 1/3 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 lime
  • 2 tbsp heaped coconut oil
  • 2 sprigs of curry leaves

Heat the coconut oil in a pan, when hot add the sprigs of curry leaves. Expect sizzling and spitting oil! Add the marinaded steaks, lower the heat and close the lid and lower the heat. Cool for 10mins , then turn and leave for another 10mins until ready to serve. In Kerrela the fish is served crispy, but if you like your tuna a bit raw cook for a lot less time!
