Here's a recipe that you can enjoy on your barbecue.
Whole Grilled Masala Fish
There are few pleasures as gratifying as having a whole grilled fish. The cooking of the flesh on the bone always results in an incredibly moist and supple flavour and prevents over drying; something we have seen all too often at restaurants. Good fresh fish is as key to the success of this recipe as the marinating and grilling. It would make you want to try this on several other varieties of fish after trying this preparation out.
Pomfret (600gms) - 2 nos
Ajwain Seeds - 2 tsp
Red chili powder - 2 tsp
Coriander powder - 2tsp
Fresh ginger paste - 20gms
Fresh Garlic paste - 20gms
Lemon Juice - 2 tbsp
Refined oil - 10ml
Turmeric Powder - 1 tsp
Fresh coriander - 20gms
Salt to taste
Preparation time: 15 minutes
- Gut the pomfret and make sure that its fine scales are scrubbed clean. Trim off the fins and tails using a pair of sharp scissors or knife.
- Using a sharp knife make 4 lateral slits on each side of the fish, deep enough to almost touch the bone beneath and keep aside.
- Combine all the other ingredients in a bowl thoroughly.
- Using your hands or a brush, rub the marinade into the slits of the pomfret so that the marinade goes through and keep refrigerated for an hour.
- Over a medium heat Weber Q100 Gas Grill with well-cleaned grates, place the two fish over direct heat. Close the lid and cook for 7-8 minutes on one side.
- Open lid and gently baste the uncooked side with some oil and flip over. The cooked side should have taken on grill marks and the white flesh from beneath the skin should look cooked. Cover again and cook for a further 8-10 minutes.
- Check to see if fish is cooked and serve at once with some lemon wedges and fresh coriander.
