For a jazzed up fish Friday try this easy Bangladeshi dish from Dina Begum's Brick Lane Cookbook.
The dish is inspired by Gram Bangla and Banglar Mukh, a couple of the smaller Bangladeshi eateries on Brick Lane which specialise in home-style cooking. These restaurants tend to have only a few meat or chicken dishes, but when it comes to fish you’re spoilt for choice with a vast selection of dishes where it is fried, curried and/or made into dumplings.
"This fish recipe is crispy and fragrant and so good with simple steamed rice. Best of all it’s on your plate in about ten minutes."
