The Black Pomfret is a great source of protein while low in fat, perfect for a filling yet light dinner. It is high in Vitamin D and essential minerals like Iron, Zinc, Iodine and Selenium, important for bone strength, healthy blood cells and balanced hormone levels. Black Pomfret is also a good source of heart-healthy Omega-3 fatty acids.

The Black Pomfret can be cooked in many ways, its flesh holds well together when steamed, boiled or pan-fried but breaks away easily on the plate. Black Pomfret is amazing when marinated and then deep-fried. Try serving with a spicy chilli sauce and lemon wedge. This fish goes well with dry or medium-dry white wines, such as German Riesling.
