    What is it? 

    A distinct taste of minced meat made out of Sura Meen or Shark fish is widely consumed along coastal areas is considered as one of the alluring side dishes for seafood lovers. I’m guessing most people are unaware of a dish made from shark, restaurants do carry and are popular. Unlike other fish, this has a unique smell and taste that supersedes the flavors of its supporting ingredients. Though fish puttu can be made from all the fish, I always pick the ones which has less bone which is easy to make puttu as well as eating and not worrying to swallow it. In general sura meen puttu is made with onions, green chilies and other ingredients, a small portion of fish (Shark/Sura) steak can serve many people, taking less time to cook.

    What it taste like? 

    A mild spicy of green chilies blended with sharks own flavor

    Though taste of fish is hard to explain here, with my experience of trying different fish/seafood, Shark is medium flavored and can be easily determined by its color. White colored meat for less flavor to dark colored for more flavor profile. With mild flavor from minced sura meen puttu and light spicy from green chillies is a perfect combination for seafood main course. Here I don’t bring up spicy level much as this soft flavored meat is enough to lingerie my tongue but it’s up to one’s preference to level up the spiciness.  The steak I get from the store has a center bone not involving too much of debone for cooking is easy to portion it by steaming. 

    Sura Meen Puttu

    Goes well with?

    Rice with Fish Curry or Rasam, Dosa, Chapati, Tacos

    This minced sura meen puttu is a savory side dish for any of the seafood courses. While I prefer eating this with fish curry or rasam, any leftovers can be carried over for breakfast like dosa or chapati. My personal habit is when having seafood I don’t mix it with other non vegetarian dishes as in general fish has it own flavor that will suppress other dishes. A variation to sura meen puttu is think of your favorite fish and you can make it. Shark is seasonal where I live though I continue to make it with any other fish that is available locally. As I’m a big fan of tacos, I stuff shark puttu with other veggies and sauces like hot chili pepper or habanero with tacos and it tastes absolutely good.
