GRILLED FISH TIKKA
By now, it is clear to all my readers that I love fish in any form except raw. In fact, love it raw too if it is a good quality sashimi. It is always good to have fish proteins. They say fish oil is good for our body. As an Indian/Bengali, I love fish mostly in curries and at times simply fry it with few masalas. At times at the end of the day, my family loves to have a simple meal of dal, veggie and deep fried fish. Saute, bake and grill with fish is something I have learnt over few years. Really like the healthier option of cooking fish.
Whenever there are guests at home, I wish to prepare some good starters. That is what people love to have I have noticed..... a platter of starters..... both veg and non veg. Hence, I prepared these GRILLED FISH TIKKA last week. It is very easy and hassle free to make it, just marinate..... wait and grill. Its done. Let us see how we do it.
Any firm white fish fillet : 500gm
Onion[cubed] : 1big
Capsicum[cubed] : 1medium
Red bell Pepper[cubed] : 1medium
Plain hung yogurt : 100gm
Lemon juice : 2tbsp
Cumin powder : 2tsp
Coriander powder : 2tsp
Garam masala powder : 1tsp
Kashmiri chilli powder : 2tbsp
Turmeric powder : 1tsp
Salt : As required
Oil : 2tbsp
Wash and cut the fish pieces small. Marinate them with lemon juice and salt. Keep for 1/2 an hour.
Marinate the fish with 1/3 of all powdered spices, oil, turmeric, salt and hung yogurt.
Marinate the onion and bell peppers with the rest of the spices, turmeric and salt. Arrange into skewers, first the bell peppers and onion, then 2 pieces of fish. Repeat.
They will look like below.
Keep marinated for 2 hours.
Grill each side for 12 -14 minutes.
Serve with salad squeezing lemon juice over them.
