Nice recipe. Looks very yummy. Can this be done with dry fish also? Can you give few tips on how to clean the dry fish?
Person Dahlia (S.I.R. Author)   (July 15, 2013)
Yes it can be. Wash the dry fish, soak in water for about 15 minutes and then drain it. This removes all the grits, sand and extra salt. After that just cook it.
