Tandoori Fish

I prefer tandoori fish more than chicken actually. I feel its more healthy since used minimal oil and oven baked. Tandoori fish is a seafood delicacy marinated with yogurt and Indian hot spices for hours. Then grilled using special clay charcoal oven. The smoked and irrestible aroma would make anyone to feel hungry.

Usually i used small snapper fish and oven baked.  This is first time i used red snapper for tandoori. Instead of oven baking, i tried using hot flame to grill the fish. It was absolutely delicious,  with the white juicy flesh.

Here i don’t  use any food coloring. Paprika replaced food coloring. Tandoori ready made masala powder can be used as well for marinating. Make sure to slit the fish before marinate. The long hours you marinate, will produce better taste.

Ingredients for marinate :

  1. 2 tbsp chili powder

  2. 1 tsp cumin powder

  3. 2 tsp coriander powder

  4. 1 tsp garam masala

  5. 1 tsp ground coarsely fennel seeds

  6. 1 tsp ajwain / carom seeds

  7. 1 tbsp paprika powder

  8. 1/2 cup yogurt

  9. 1 lemon squeezed

  10. salt

  11. 2 tbsp ginger -garlic paste

  12. few drops of olive oil


Lemon wedges

Onion slices

Preparation Method :

Clean the fish and make few slits on it. Marinate with all the ingredients for 8-10 hours at least.

Cover with banana leaf or aluminium foil. Either grill on hot flame or oven baked at 200 degree C for 25 minutes both sides.

Brush with butter occasionally.

Squeeze lemon before serving.
