In an earlier article (Part 1), we mentioned about an untapped fishing spot in Chennai’s ECR Road that has diverse collection of fish. We had also covered about basic fishing techniques.
In this article, we will visually walk you through on two aspects – the HUGE size of fishes we caught, and also the experience of frying fishes on shore.
We were thoroughly surprised by the size of fish we could catch. See below pictures and compare the fish size with the person holding it.
The people who come here regularly to fish stay here for longer hours. They cook some of the fishes they caught right on the sea shore and celebrate it like a party.
If you are planning to fry the fish on the shore, take all possible items needed for cooking – utensils, knife, wooden logs, barbecue kit (if you like), aluminium foil paper, mineral water and other fish masala ingredients.
We cut the fish and washed it clean using mineral water (in multiple rounds).
Then, the prepared masala is applied on the fish.
Every fish is then surrounded with an individual aluminium foil – so that fishes don’t stick to each other while frying. Then the foil-wrapped fishes are cooked in fire for more than 10 minutes.
We used our vehicle petrol for lighting up the fire with help of small wooden logs and paper. We used a small stick to move the foil-wrapped fishes on all directions to ensure the entire fish is well cooked.
Alternatively, you can also bring a barbecue kit for easing the cooking process.
Once the fish is consumed, collect all the left out materials and throw it at garbage bin – do not litter the place.
We could barely eat one fish per person, and we took all remaining fish to home by putting them in an ice box.
