Hilsa or Ilish is the most popular fish for Bengalis. This is the national fish of Bangladesh. Bengalis wait throughout the year and look forward to the rainy season for Ilish. I think Hilsa is most popular for its aroma and taste and also very easy to cook. Nowadays Hilsa is not so pocket friendly but the positive thing is that this fish is very light weight. Bhapa Ilish or steamed hilsa is one of the most popular hilsa dish in Bengal.
