This Fish Chilli Dry is different! I grilled the fish instead of the usual deep frying. It was delicious!You may deep fry the fish pieces if you like but I would suggest you try this grilled version. It is low on oil & the sesame oil adds a lot of flavor too. Fish Chilli Dry is an excellent finger snack with drinks & can be served on the side with noodles or rice. Enjoy! J
