Pan fried fish with Bombay potatoes:

Pan fried fish with Bombay potatoes, doesn’t that sound inviting and flavoursome! Well it is!

If you follow my Instagram and website you would know I am huge fan of pan fried fish, steamed fish, oven baked fish and all sorts of fish dishes and this has become one of my favourites. This Pan fried fish with Bombay potatoes combination has become my absolute favourite one.

On Instagram there are so many talented food bloggers, chefs and I constantly get inspirations from these amazing people. The Bombay Potatoes with fish idea I got from lovely Freda Shafi, do check her great page on instagram, @fredashafi_spiceitup. She made a similar creation and served it with meat and I absolutely loved it, thought of serving it with this fish instead of same old boring mashed potatoes. It’s packed with flavours and goes so well with the texture of the fish.
