Sa-mak ma-ga-lee ~ Fried Fish
Fried fish is served daily in many homes throughout the UAE.
While some prefer to eat it dry with white boiled steamed rice,
others may make a tomato gravy to serve as an accompaniment.
Personally, I like both.
2lbs (950gms) small to
medium fish - safi, zu-badi, umma, small sha-rie
Wash fish, clean well leaving
on heads, make sure scales
are all removed and fish
degutted. Rub with salt and
bezar. Place on plate, cover
with lemon juice and garlic.
