Feast of love part IV - Tandoori fish
The main dish of my meal was a simple tandoori flavored fish. I marinated the fish for about 4-5 hours which resulted is mild fishy odor with a great tandoori smokiness. Although I'm not a big boxed masala person but in certain preparations they really enhance the flavor, tandoori dishes for instance.
6 big pieces of trout
3 tablespoon yogurt
1 Tbls spoon salt (the marinade has to be salty)
2 Tbl spoon Shaan tandoori masala (love this brand it has food color already added)
1 tblspoon dhanya zeera powder
1 tblspoon green chilli paste
1/2 tbls spoon redchilli powder
1)Take all the dry ingredients and green chilli paste and mix it with enough yogurt to form a semi dry paste its shouldn't be too runny just wet enough to coat the fish.
2)Marinate the fish in a closed container in the refrigerate for as long as 6-8 hours.
3)Pre heat your oven to 350'
4)Take a flat baking sheet lined with aluminum foil and grease it with oil
5)Place the fish pieces on the sheet and dribble oil over it.
6)Bake it for 30 - 45 mins just before serving.
My next post will be about the tangy sauce to go with it.
