Illegally imported fish destroyed

November 15, 2022 11:05 am

BHARATPUR, Nov 15: Two thousand kilograms of illegally imported fish has been destroyed in Bharatpur. The farmers took a vehicle (Lu 3 Cha 3336) headed for Kathmandu from Bardaghat of Nawalparasi under control and destroyed the illegally imported fish it was carrying.

Cooking fish at a low temperature in a covered pot is a nearly foolproof way to achieve perfectly cooked fish, since the heavy Dutch oven holds in moisture and allows the fish to cook through gently and evenly. This method is also a wonderful way to concentrate flavor, meaning that a minimum of ingredients can make a big impact. We started by browning sliced garlic in oil, which mellowed its flavor and infused the dish with warm aromatic notes.

A brief stovetop braise is the perfect way to cook delicate white fish like cod, since it keeps the fish moist and silky while creating a sauce at the same time. To give the mild fillets a boost of flavor, we paired them with a Spanish-style peperonata, a combination of cooked bell peppers and onions, to which we added tomatoes, wine, paprika, and fresh thyme for depth of flavor.

DHADING, Feb 6: Eateries in Malekhu are becoming increasingly dependent on fish supplies of fish from different tarai districts as well as India as local sources of fish dry up.

Not so big fish in a big pond

March 23, 2018 09:53 am

Krishna Prasad Sigdel’s book reads like a primer on Nepal’s foreign policy and international affairs. It also deals with the country’s political, social and economic situation and environmental issues, sometimes going into considerable detail. As the author states in the preface, the book is an effort to give the reader a proper idea of Nepal’s place in the South Asian region and in the world.  It comes at a time when, as the author rightly observes, the center of gravity in world affairs seems to be shifting back toward Asia after several centuries of Western predominance.
