Ingredients for 1 medium sized fish
  • 1 medium sized pomfret
  • Lemon - 1/2
  • Ginger paste - 1.5 tsp
  • Onion paste - 1 tbsp
  • A pinch of turmeric
  • Kashmiri Red Chilli Powder - 1/4 tsp
  • Tandoori Masala (Optional) - 1/2 tsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Squeeze lemon generously on the fish and sprinkle salt and apply well
  • Keep aside for about 10-15 min
  • Take ginger paste, onion paste, turmeric powder, Red Chilli powder & Tandoori Masala in a bowl and mix it well.
  • Apply the mix on to the fish coating it nicely
  • Allow this to marinade for as long as possible (preferably about 6 hours)
  • Brush the grilling rack with little oil
  • Place the fish on the rack and brush oil on the top
  • Grill it on high power for about 10 mins (will depend on the power capacity of your oven; but the grilling is done till the top side is well done). Turn over the fish, brush with little oil and grill for about 8-9 minutes.

I do this with hung curd, ginger/garlic paste, tandoori masala, chilli powder, and lots of crushed ajwain. Marinate for abt 2 hrs. Maybe you can try it next time.
