Meen puttu is one of the popular dish in Tamil Nadu. Sura meen(shark fish) puttu is the healthy recipe for all the lactating mothers. “My grandma” often do with shark fish, but I have replaced with salmon fish.
Here we steam the fish, remove all the skin and bones. Shred the fish using fork or hands and sear the fish with spices to enhance the flavor.
