Sanoli's Kitchen: FISH TANDOORI

Tuesday, September 4, 2012


This is the first time I made this dish. Fish cooked in oven (Tandoori Style). I have used Salmon fillet, which came out perfect for this dish. I hadn't used any food colour here.  Fish is marinated here in a very flovorful spices and cooked slowly, making them look extremely appetizing, which called 'tandoori' or 'tikka'. Tandoori fish is absolutely special, while it done correctly. If you follow this recipe, I can give you that assurance, you are in for a real treat. So enjoy this scrumptious and luscious treat!
2 lbs Salmon Fillet, cut in 1&1/2" slices
2 tbsps Ginger paste
2 tbsps Garlic paste
1 tsps Red Chilli powder
1/2 tsp Black Pepper powder
1&1/2 tsps Paprika
1/3 tsp dried Oregano
1 tbsp Coriander powder
1 tbsp freshly grounded Garam masala
1/2 cup thick plain yogurt (curd)
Juice of a 1/2 Lemon
2 tbsps Shan Spice Mix for Chicken Tikka BBQ (or any tandoori spices)
1/2 tsp Chaat masala
2 tbsps Olive oil
Salt to taste

Wash salmon fillets, make those pat dry.
Marinate salmon fillet with ginger paste, garlic paste, red chilli powder, black pepper powder, paprika, oregano, coriander powder, garam masala, thick yogurt, lemon juice, shan spice mix, 1 tbsp olive oil and salt. Fold nicely, so that salmon pieces are well coated with spices. Keep the marination in refrigerator for atleast 2 hours.
Grease a baking tray with 1 tbsp olive oil. Arrange salmon fillets on the baking tray. Keep little room in between in two pieces.
Preheat the oven to 450 F. Keep this baking tray on the upper rack of the oven and adjust temperature to broil. Bake it for 10 minutes. Remove tray from the oven and turn the salmon pieces on the other side. Again bake it on broil for 8 minutes. Switch off the oven.

Take out baking tray from the oven and arrange the grilled fish fillets on a palate. Drizzle with some fresh lemon juice and chaat masala on the top.
Serve hot as an absolutely palatable appetizer with salad and lemon pieces.
