Grilled tandoori pomfret



Today there is a craze among everyone to eat healthy . But again there are some who don't want to compromise on taste. I count myself among such few people. So I always try to find ways to make the dishes healthy as well as tastier.


 One such dish which I have always liked is this tandoori pomfrets. Very little oil used just for brushing makes it nutritious and the fish provides you high quality protein .

I have grilled the fish in the grill section of microwave but if you don't have a microwave you can shallow fry them in a non stick pan also. The fish will be tasty but you won't get the grilled effect.






Ingredients :

4 .......................Pomfrets
1 n 1/2 tbsp.......tandoori masala
2 tsp.................chilly powder
2 tsp.................turmeric powder
1 tbsp...............lemon juice
salt
oil for brushing
2 .....................onion ( cut in rings )


Method :


To clean the fish scarp the tough layer on pomfrets with a blunt knife and trim the side fins.

Give a cut from side ways carefully with a sharp knife keeping the head n tail intact.

Clean the stomach  and wash the pomfrets thoroughly.

Mix all masala powders with salt and lemon juice .

Apply this paste to the pomfrets properly from all sides.






Marinate for 2 hours or more.

Arrange them on a well greased plate.

Grill in a microwave for total 10 to 12 minutes.

Turn them over and grill the other side again for 10 to 12 minutes.

Serve hot with onion rings .
