Grilled Fish



Japan, hub of marine food, tremendous amount for sea foods are available here. Its like heaven for sea food lovers. You can get unlimited range of fish, weeds and other sea products. You name it and you get it, but the thing is you should know its Japanese name :). Japanese foods are considered as one of the best and nutritious food, as they do not perform much alteration with its original form. For example, 'Sushi', a world famous dish (considered to be very healthy and tasty) is created by putting raw pieces of fish or fish eggs over a rice ball.

Now coming to the topic, since I am brought up in central part of India, our consumption of marine foods were limited. We use to eat river fishes like Bangra, Rohu, Katla etc. My mother knows the real secret of making them with mustard paste and gravy, which I love a lot. Grilled fish which I have prepared is an inspiration from my brother's MIL (mother in law). She is an expert cook. My first experience of sea fish was at her place only in Bangalore. I can still taste that experience. She make this shallow fried fish with "Surmai" (name of fish) and I always forget this name and fill as it is called 'Sundari' :). This time also it happened the same way and corrected with the help of my brother. Here I have used her recipe with little alteration and with other fish. This recipe can be used with other fishes too but it should be thin sliced fish.





Ingredients:

Thin sliced fish 4 pieces
Ginger garlic paste 2 tbsp
Chili powder 1/4 tsp
Cumin powder 1/4 tsp
Coriander powder 1/2 tsp
Kitchen king or sambar masala 1/2 tbsp
Vinegar 2 tbsp
Salt to taste
Semolina or rava or suji 1/2 cup


Preparation:

* Wash fish slices nicely and drain extra water.
* Add every thing expect rava in vinegar and make paste like.
* Evenly spread this paste on fish slices and marinate for 1 hr.
* After an hr of marination, sprinkle rava evenly on every slice of fish.
* Roast in griller till nicely cooked, if needed brush with oil.
* You can also shallow fry it with oil.


I like preparing grilled fish with no oil but my husband insists me to brush few drops of oil while grilling over his servings. Squeeze lime juice over it and serve it hot.
