A traditional Bengali (East Indian) dish. It is easy to make and usually prepared using hilsa fish. However salmon or cod can be used instead.

INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):


  • Place the mustard seed and chile peppers in a bowl, and mash together to create a fine paste.
  • Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat, and cook the onions until golden. Mix in mustard and chile paste, chili powder, turmeric, and salt. Stir in water. Place salmon in the skillet. Reduce heat to low, and cook until most of the liquid has evaporated and fish is easily flaked with a fork.
