|Basa Fish in Soya Sauce|
For me cooking or baking are stress busters. Apart from these two diversions, retail therapy diverts my mind from other nagging priorities. So, on this day I went to Garuda Mall for window shopping. At Garuda mall, I noticed that Westside has opened a super market division. While I moved inside the frozen meat section, I noticed a unique food packed, with the label - Basa Fish.
First time I heard about Basa fish is at 'Barbecue Nation', grill hotel at Indira Nagar. It was my brother's treat for getting a new job, and we devoured fish and prawns girll at Barbecue Nation. While having fish at this grill joint, the chef came to our take and answered few our our queries. He told us that they use Basa fish for grill..
Now at Westside, I checked for the price of this fish from Vietnam. It's Rs 220/- for half kg packet.
On an impulse I took one packed of Basa Fish in my shopping cart and proceed to the counter. Another delight waited here and it was in the form of credit points in my credit card. I swiped my credit card happily and purchased BASA fish for FREE.
The same evening, I had a train to catch to Hyderabad and I got into the fast act of preparing a simple dish. At first I grilled the fish for 10 minutes. Next I put onion, green chilies, herbs and spices and then shallow fried in a pan with soya sauce.
After the preparation, me and my partner both devoured the entire half kilo in less that a hour. I'm happy to try out something new, and more happy with the result.
