"It is worth selling your everything for a taste of Ilish" or Hilsa -so the saying goes. The best ones are seasonal and riverine now restricted by weight ,they appear in the market for a small sliver of time and is snapped up. Frozen?- nope - it has to be fresh caught.

Packed with ground mustard, green chillies , mustard oil and turmeric - then steamed - it is spicy and brilliant.
