Sutchi fish is one of my preferred white fish as it has a mild flavour and doesn’t have a fishy or muddy smell despite it being a freshwater fish. Besides being really affordable and cheap, the sutchi fish with a firm texture is very suitable for pan-frying, baking or even stir-frying.
Here are a few other recipes that I had experimented with the sutchi fish and they all turned out pretty well.

Salmon & Sutchi Fish Cakes
Oven-Baked Crispy Fish Fingers
This time I just wanted to keep things simple and hence I pan-fried the sutchi fillets in some butter & olive oil. Loved the soft and flaky meat and of course the buttery flavour too. Enjoy!
