Indian Grilled Fish Recipe

Ingredients :

1 kg

2 teaspoons

3 cloves

1 1/2 teaspoons

4 teaspoons

1 teaspoon

1/2 teaspoon

3 tablespoons

1 cup

2 tablespoons

Firm white fish fillets

Finely grated fresh ginger

Garlic, crushed


Ground coriander

Garam masala

Chili powder

Lemon juice


Plain flour

Method :
  • Wash the fillets and dry them on a kitchen paper.

  • Cut fish into 4 cm pieces.

  • Make a marinade of all the other ingredients mixed well together.

  • Put the fish pieces in and mix gently but thoroughly so that each piece is coated with marinade.

  • Leave 15 minutes at room temperature or longer in the refrigerator.

  • Preheat griller and while it is heating, thread pieces of fish on bamboo skewers, 4 or 5 pieces on each.

  • Make sure all the skin is on one side of the skewer.

  • Put skewers on griller tray and grill 10 cm away from heat with skin side upwards, for about 4 minutes.

  • Turn skewers and grill other side for another 4 minutes, depending on thickness of the fish.

  • Do not overcook.

  • Serve kebabs immediately accompanied by rice or chapatis and onion sambal.

Note : Use fish of a good thickness, such as snapper, jewfish and similar varieties, for it is difficult to thread very thin slices of fish on skewers.
