Tandoori Fish


Tandoori Fish

This is a delicious,tangy and mildly spiced fish baked in the oven.You can use any fleshy fish fillet.I used tilapia because it is a delicate fish.Tuna and cat fish also works well for this recipe.This is the best recipe for those who do not like much  of fishy flavor. Tandoori marinade seems to reduce fishy odor but at the same time makes it soft, moist and tasty.


Ingredients
Tilapia fillets-3


For the  marinade
Kashmiri chili powder- 3/4 tsp
Paprika- 3/4 tsp 
Ginger- garlic paste- 1 tsp
Gram flour- 2 tbs 
Garam Masala- 1/2 tsp
Yogurt (hung)- 3 tbs

Kasoori methi powder-a  pinch
Lemon juice- a few drops
Oil 3 tsp




To prepare the marinade heat 2 tsp of oil and add gram flour and roast it in a slow flame for about a minute till you get a nice flavor. Be very careful as it has a tendency to burn. The best way is to bring the pan to heat and then off heat and then again to heat and whisking continuously.Allow this to cool a bit. 
Mix all ingredients listed in the marinade along with the gram flour paste.
Clean fish and make small gashes and coat with the marinade and keep refrigerated for at least two hours . Preheat oven to 450 degree F. Grease baking tray with little oil and layer the fish and place in the oven and allow to cook in high temperature. After three minutes reduce heat to 300 degree F. Cook for 5 minutes and then turn around the fish( gently with a wide spatula.the fish will be  very tender at this stage) for another 5-6 minutes.

Serve with lemon wedges.

Hope you will all enjoy..
