Baked Fish Fillets

Servings : Serves 4

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


  • 4 fish fillets ( I used kingfish but you can use hammour or tilapia or salmon…any fish fillet that you prefer)
  • 3 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1-2 tsp salt
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/4 tsp garlic paste
  • pinch of turmeric powder
  • pinch of tandoori masala (optional)
  • 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!
