Grilled fish - Can you name this fish?


Isn't it a cute fish? We got a bagful of these from the nearby fisherman's market during this weekend. Does anyone know its name? It tasted very good in both as fish curry and fry.

We also grilled it in the following way. What we have is a Sharp Carousel double grill convention microwave oven. We marinated the fish pieces using the fish fry recipe mentioned before. The recipe is here. On top and bottom grills, cook the fishes on lower rack for 7 minutes. Turn over the fish pieces and lightly brush eash side with very little oil. Cook it further for 7-8 minutes on bottom grill. And here is the end-result. Try it out. It came out very delicious.

I dont know if i am correct only after coming to US i started buying fishes till then only my mom used to go to the market. so i am really bad with fishes. Red snapper is the only fish i get really fresh here and its tastes good in both curry and fry.
