Spanish Mackerel or Thora Maalu is a very expensive fish in Sri Lanka. Its always served for special occasions or when some one is sick or breast feeding. If I say it s a kind of a special luxury thats correct. You cant use it every day due to the high price .
People believe that its very good for those who are sick as its easy to digest. Spanish mackerel is always very nice when you cook it as a white curry than red curry with chilli powder. The white flesh and the thick coconut milk gives it a very nice flavour once it is cooked this way. There are other methods of cooking this fish and I will upload them soon.
