LEMONY BUTTERY FISH

This is a classic fish recipe, which is pretty simple but tastes delectable. While making butter sauce, take care of not to burn the butter. It looks golden still tastes nutty. Fish cooked with lemon & butter is yummy and flavorful, very easy to cook.
INGREDIENTS:
1lb 4OZ  Salmon Fillet (may take Tilapia, Bhetki, John Dory or any white fish fillet)
1 parboiled Potato
1 medium Onion
2 tbsps crushed and minced Garlic
2 tsps Ginger juice
1 tsp Black Pepper powder
1&1/2 tsp Paprika flakes/powder
3 tbsps fresh Lemon juice
3 tsps all purpose flour
4 tbsps Olive oil
2 tbsps finely chopped Parsley
150ml warm water
1 tbsp Butter
Salt to taste

METHOD:
Cut fish fillet in cubes, marinate with 1 tbsp minced garlic, ginger juice, 1/2 tsp black pepper powder, 1/2 tsp paprika, 1 tbsp lemon juice, little olive oil and salt. Keep refrigerated for 30 mins to 1 hour.
In the mean time, cut potatoes and onions into thick slices. Set aside.

Dry roast flour for 2-3 minutes, keep stirring, don't burn it. Remove from heat and keep aside. Let it cool.

Heat 3 tbsps olive oil in a non-stick pan. Add fish pieces in it, keep the juice of marination aside. Fry fish pieces till those turn into light brown from both sides. Remove fish pieces from the heat.
Now mix potatoes and onions well with the remaining juice of marination. Add potatoes and onions in hot oil, fry for 3 minutes on high heat, so that potatoes and onions get crisp and flavored with the spices too. Remove potatoes and onions from the pan, leave aside.

Now, heat remaining 1 tbsps olive oil in same pan. Add flour, 1/2 tsp black pepper powder, 1 tsp paprika in it.  Fold well. Add 150ml warm water in it. Stir continuously for 2 minutes, so that no lumps formed within gravy. Put fried fish pieces, parsley, 1 tbsp minced garlic, 2 tbsps lemon juice and butter in it. Add salt to taste. Cook for another 2 minutes on low heat. Dont heat for prolonged time. Once everything mix nicely and gravy is thicken, remove it from heat.
Pour gravy along with fish pieces on the center of a palate and arrange fried potatoes and onions surrounded to it. Serve immediately.
Serve hot with pasta/spaghetti or simply with rice as a side dish.
