Good quality ready to serve products viz. chilli fish could be prepared from good quality fish by proper modification of the recipe for chilli chicken. It had a high quality shelf life of more than one month at -18oC. It had very low APC after one month storage and noE.coliwasdetected showing the raw material as well as the finished product was free from faecal contamination.
