Scales removed or Skin-out as appropriate. Fish is cut with part of the head intact, meat is cleaned, but not cut in to smaller pieces. Pan-ready and readied to be fried as a whole in case of medium size fish
The local name for this fish is ‘udupoori’ indicating that the fish needs to be de-skinned before consuming. Amazingly tasty though once you process after removing the skin – very meaty & tasty. We de-skin this fish when cleaning it.
