Fish Fry with Green Masala

Here is one of the simple fish fillet recipes by my mother-in-law. We use kingfish, also called the king mackerel, or seer fish (surmai) for this recipe, since the masala goes very well with fillets. This is a perfect recipe if you are trying your hands on fish for the first time. Just grind a few ingredients to a paste, marinate the fish fillets, and shallow fry.
