When you think Barracuda, what comes to your mind ? … ( no not the song by Heart ! ) … the fish – big, long, vicious, sharp teeth, ugly but nice chunky meat, barbecue 🙂 And then you come across Baby Barracuda … small, delicate, kinda cute, soft edible bones, deep fried !!! Yup these little babies can give anchovies a run for their money. Add a couple of spices to flour, toss them in it and deep fry … an instant hit and I promise you , once you start you cannot stop eating these.
- Baby Barracudas
- 100 gms all purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons corriander pd
- 2 tsps red cayenne pd
- 2 tsp dry mango pd
- a teeny weeny pinch of turmeric
- salt to taste
- lemon wedges to serve
- oil for deep frying
Clean and gut the fishes, but leave them whole. Pat them dry. Mix the spices and flour together. Toss the fishes in it and coat them well, making sure you get some of the flour mix in the belly of the fish too. Deep fry in hot oil, till crispy. Drain on kitchen towel, and serve immediately with lemon wedges.
