Ace of fish
The Food Network show, "The Best Thing I Ever Ate," came to The Ambassador Sunday to film celebrity baker Duff Goldman eating fish.
Binda Singh, who owns the restaurant with his brother, said chef Raman Kanghuta prepared Goa Fish, following a recipe developed by Singh's mother. The dish features a pan-fried fish in a tamarind reduction with garlic, ginger, turmeric and cumin.
"It is very traditional," he said, noting that the dish is common in the Goa region of India.
Except in India, it is made with a type of white fish not commonly found here. The Ambassador uses Rockfish.
Singh is not sure when the episode will air. (He expects to find out in four or five weeks.) But he knows Goldman, the "Ace of Cakes" star who nominated the fish for the show, will give it high praise.
"He loved it," Singh said. "He was just going on and on."
