CRAVINGS RAVINGS //SPICY FISH FRY

If you're not an Indian or someone from Asia and can't handle a bit of spice this isn't for you. Orrrrrr....mayyyyyy-be you've been waiting for this recipe all your life to change your opinion on spicy food. I'd just read the other day that eating spicy food triggers endorphins in our system. Is that true? I don't really care. I've only got proof of one thing.

This right here is ah-mayyy-zing.

And don't worry, if you're really all that concerned of steam escaping from your ears then you could tone down the heat. For Indians, this is our regular spicy. I live amidst a sea of Arabs and a lot of my pals just cannot handle even a tiny bit of heat and before they finish even a bite, rush to the basin to gargle it all out.

I mean, c'mon. This shouldn't be spicier than hot buffalo wings though if you're into that sort of thing. Everyone is, right, right?! Enough droning on and on at the intro now. Let's dive into it! :D
Quick and Easy Spicy Fish Fillet: Crusty outside and juicy inside by Craft A Doodle Doo #food #easy #seafood #recipes

Growing up, mum made this hundreds of times on popular demand. Always with a side of tomato chutney and white rice. Bread works wonderfully as well and I prefer mine with bread. Dad and I love ours with freshy squeezed lemon on top of the fish's crusty exterior. Yum. You'll want to make sure you have good quality fish fillet for this otherwise it would ruin the whole experience. That's always the case with fish, isn't it?This dish would be made exclusively on Fridays at our place. I think that made it more special. Heck, I could eat this non-ceremoniously past bedtime and it would still feel special. Want to be made felt special? Here's how:
