Pan-fired Turmeric Red Mullet, Pla Kra Bok Tod Kamin
Red Mullet, my mom favorite fish. She always comes up with delicious recipe with this yummy fish, and this is one of hers that becomes my favorite fish dish ever. It is also another delicious recipe using turmeric powder. You need to add more turmeric to your diet, people. The research shows it helps prevent Alzheimer
I got two Red Mullets for $2.60 from fish store in Chinatown. The fish was very fresh with clear eyes and red gills, and when thing is fresh, it tastes SOoo good.
- 2 tbsp. turmeric powder
- 5 cloves of garlic
- 15 seeds black pepper
- 2 tsp. salt
- fresh red Mullet, cleaned and scored
Make the rub and fry
1. using mortar and pestle to crush garlic and black pepper together until it becomes paste then mix in turmeric power and salt.
2. * wear gloves, otherwise your hands will be yellow stained for two weeks* rub the paste all over the fish. If there are any paste lump left, try to put them inside the fish stomach so they will not get burn when frying.
3. Fry them in hot oil and serve.
Warning : Be prepare for the delicious smell that comes out from these garlic, black pepper and turmeric rub, it'll make your stomach groans so bad.
They are golden delicious indeed.
