Firm, fan-finned fish that is the base of many a Goan recipe. Almost always found flash-frozen.

Dude, yes: deep-fried would be so good. The only ways I've had it are stuffed with coriander chutney (or any other spice mix of your choice), and then pan-fried. Served whole, one fish per person, and preferably without utensils.

hmmmm Black Pomfret!!!!!!!!

Love it!
first had it while working at a Thai resto
love it grilled with lemongrass and lime

or deep-fried crisp and dressed with lime, Lao herbs, fried garlic and chilis

or steamed with fermented black beans (chili-garlic sauce on side for me!)

wow..I need to grab a couple this week and try it with my latest batch of Jamaican jerk paste

Huzzah! I found frozen, whole (heads-on, guts-in) black pomfret at my new favourite store. Haven't bought any yet, though, so how *good* the pomfret is will wait for another day.
