One more yummy non-veg dry item. This is very simple and quick to prepare. Delicious and looks yummy too. Here is my recipe:

Grilled Fish Fillets:
Prep : 1hr (marination and for freezing)
Cooking time : 15mts
Serves : 2
Cuisine : Indian

4 Tilapia fish fillets
1 tsp red chilli powder
2 tbsp yogurt
2 tbsp oil
1 tbsp lemon juice
salt as per taste
a pinch of turmeric powder
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
a small pinch of food color (optional)

1. Wash and clean the fish fillets (don't make pieces), marinate with all the above ingredients and keep in freeze for more than 45 minutes.

2. Take out from freezer and place them on a baking tray and keep the tray in a conventional oven.

3. First 5 minutes, set the temperature at 500 degrees F.

4. After 5 minutes, decrease the temperature to 350 degrees F and cook for more 10 minutes.

5. Serve hot with sliced onions and lemon.

  1. I like the colour the red chilie powder gives to the fish, Joyothi.

  2. Hi!

  3. @Hi Cynthia, thanks for dropping by. I sent an email to your mail id. Thanks in advance.

    @Hi Usha, instead of oven, you can fry in tawa with help of 1 tbsp oil. Thanks for dropping by.

  4. wow jyothi this is really a nice dish....wonderful fish fry.seems to nbe tasty n spicy....

  5. @Hi Shanti, you are absolutely right. Its slightly spicy and very tasty. Try it and let me know. Thanks.

  6. hi Jyothi fish looks fab..grilled fish has never come out well to me ..shall try it this way next time..dont we need to preheat oven ?.also,fish from freezer?.no thawing required?.pl let me know..thanks

  7. Hi Jyothi, the grilled fish looks so tempting...Nice recipe. Thanks.

  8. @Hi Deena, extremely sorry for delay. Quite busy. You try this next time, surely you will enjoy the taste. Its not required to preheat the oven. After marinating the fish, just keep for 1 hour in deep freeze. Later directly remove and keep in a baking tray. If you feel thawing, then wait for 10minutes and go ahead for further proceadure. But I will do directly only. Thanks for your comments and keep on coming.
