My hubby's fishing 'kakis' caught a 2 kilogram threadfin fish and shared with us 3 slices of it. So far I haven't cook freshly caught fish by frying. This time with some fresh green mangoes from my neighbour, I pan fried the fish for a change. Yummy, sweet, sourish mango with fried fish.......um!!! Nice with plain white rice.
