Slightly spicy, succulent and tangy fish fillets that are also very healthy!

fish fillets
3 tsp.
red chilli powder
1-2 tsp.
juice of 1 lemon
1/4 tsp.
garlic paste
pinch of turmeric powder
pinch of tandoori masala
1-2 tbsp.
oil or melted butter

Mix the salt, red chilli powder, turmeric, tandoori masala, garlic and the lemon juice to form a paste. Rub this paste on the fillets, then put them in a bowl and cover with cling film. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours, preferably overnight.

Remove the fillets and brush them with the oil or melted butter on both sides, then lay them on a lightly greased baking tray. Pre-heat the oven at 200 C then bake for about 15 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.

Remove and serve immediately with accompaniments of your choice!



Can we keep the fish in freezer for some days
after merinating it?

Yes you can freeze the fish after marinating for a few days.

Can we freeze this

can we bake it in pressure cooker :P i dont have any oven :/

Sorry but have never baked in a pressure cooker so not sure how the results would turn out. You can try, let me know how it goes. :)

No matter how greasy I make my baking tray, any sort of meat let it be fillets in breadcrumbs or your Chapli kabab's too, they stick to it badly. I have evrn tried using wax paper but the meat stuck to it. How can I avoid this?

Try to make sure the mince/meat is completely dry, if it has any extra moisture it will inevitably cause the meat to stick. Also be sure to put the tray into a very hot oven.

W/Salaam, thank you so much for the sweet comment. I will be praying all the dishes turn out brilliantly for you inshaAllah. Will most definitely keep adding more recipes to this section inshaAllah. If the fillets were not washed prior to freezing then yes, give them a rinse so they do not smell too fishy. And yes you can use a pyrex baking dish, grease it well but no need to line it with foil. :)

salaam..can u suggest some receipes with oat...and can we make harees with oats...jazalumullah khair

W/Salaam, will add some more oat recipes. I have never made harees with oats sorry. I doubt it will turn out as good.

Salaam Fauzia,
Can we use any type of fish? I've got some tilapia at the moment and was wondering if I can use it for this dish...

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

W/Salaam, yes that should be fine.

Any type of firm fish will work, like salmon, parrot fish, king fish, red snapper etc etc.
