Grilled fish (Indian style)
For diet food lovers, this one is simply perfect. Usually the entire fish is grilled and served along with some salad. But, I have used only a small portion of a large carpe rouge fish (used the remaining fish for making fish curry). I trust the food is best when it is simple. In simplicity there is so much of taste, aroma, flavour. Therefore the spices used were also very minimal. Here goes the recipe...
Fish of choice (I used carpe rouge) - 1 nos
Chilly powder - 1 tbsp
Lime juice - 1/4 tsp
Ginger - garlic paste - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1 pinch
Salt for taste
Olive oil for basting
Mix all ingredients except fish and make a paste out of it. Rub this paste on the fish and leave it for 1 hour. Now grill the fish using a hot charcoal grill. Baste oil and cook till its done. Serve hot along with salad of your choice.
I have used lemon wedges, grilled onions, and chillies to garnish the fish. And served it along with sliced cucumbers.
