Fish fry is one of our favorite items. A lot of people like it as an evening snack. However we treat ourselves with fish-fry and salads as an early dinner. This works great with our goal of limiting or avoiding carbs at dinner.
When I had just started blogging I posted my recipe for Bengali style fish fry at http://www.bongcook.com/2008/10/fish-fry-bangali-style.html. At that time I used to hunt for Bhetki in US and in absence use other alternatives like Sole, Sear and Salmon. Now I almost always use Cod. It tastes almost as good as Bhetki.
