Fish Recheado Masala Recipe

Fish Recheado is a popular Goan dish in which fresh fish is stuffed with a masala paste and fried. Since Goan cuisine has been influenced by the Portuguese, ‘Recheado’ is the Portuguese word for stuffed.

The masala that the fish is stuffed with gets its taste from toddy and a combination of whole spices.

Serve this fish with bread or steamed rice for a main course.
