In my never ending quest for healthy eating I have knocked on many doors, one such door was grilled fish. I tried it with minimum seasonings like lime, salt, pepper and a few dry herbs the way firangs make it… didn’t like it. But I liked the fact it was easily made and healthy. So what I did, the next time I bought some salmon fillets and marinated it using normal fish fry masala and grilled it … jackpot…it was yummy.
Enough introduction now over to the recipe…
Salmon Fillets – 2
Chilly powder – 2 tsp
Turmeric powder – 1/2 tsp
Ginger and garlic paste – 1 tsp
Fenugreek powder – 1/4 tsp
Lemon juice – 1 full
Salt – to taste
Fish Sauce/Oyster sauce – 1 tblsp (optional – unhealthy but yummy)
Water – as reqd
Make a paste with all the ingredients except the fish fillets and marinate it for a minimum of 1/2 an hour. Bake in an oven at 350F for 10 minutes on each side. Broil for a couple of minutes by keeping the tray as close to the heat source. Flit and repeat the same. You know your fish is cooked when it becomes an opaque white, not pink, not translucent.
Serve with Grilled or steamed vegetables.
Point to note: There will be dripping (of the masala), if you want to avoid it, not possible, but you can make sure the bottom of your oven will be clean by lining your baking tray with aluminium foil. Once the cooking is done just throw the foil. Simple.
