Fish Cutlets are nothing but shallow-fried or steamed fish which is minced with spices, combined with potatoes, shaped into cutlets and again deep fried mostly, but can be shallow-fried too.
Fish cutlets are easy-to-make, simple home-made meal. The recipe I have shared today is making it in Indian style and I ended up with a recipe on my second try!! This recipe is for all the fish lover’s 😊
When I said about fish lover, I just love fish and Iam a great fan of fish cutlets, we get from market in my hometown, Thoothukudi. The recipe I have shared almost gives the same taste.
Since there are many varieties in fish, any fish variety which you like can be used to make cutlets. From red salmon, tuna fish to any Indian variety fish can be used.
I have used red salmon to make these cutlets as we get it very common here. Select your own fish variety and either steam or shallow fry it with pepper and salt. The reason for shallow frying is to leave the fish soft and moist. Do not deep fry it hard.
I always wanted to mention about amchur powder/dry mango powder. This powder gives the perfect taste to the recipe but if you couldn’t get it, try to substitute it with lime/lemon. But the best is amchur powder.
These fish cutlets are also called as fish cakes and can be used as patties inbetween the burger buns. This also makes a perfect meal❤
