Curry Leaves Grilled Fish

Its just me, at times I must needle myself to invent a new recipe. But why not? Don't you think that's how it should be instead of suppressing the brains from thinking? Of course, we need to oil our brains as well so that we don't slow down in thinking. Moreover, for me, with cooking fish so often (Murungakka Fish Curry & Fish In Chilli Lime Gravy), there is definitely a need for a different fish dish. Therefore, after carefully considering that my oven has been sleeping for a while, grilling fish seem the logical thing to do. Grilling basically is about marinating the ingredients on the core ingredient, in this case, its fish, and then the outcome is crispy crunchy on the outside and tender inside Curry Leaves Grilled Fish (Grilled Spicy Prawns, Curry Leaves Baked Chicken, Otak-Otak, Grilled Mackerel & Grilled Chicken Wings). 

8 small fresh sardine fish - de-cut but don't remove the head.
1/2 tsp chilli flakes (or as preferred)
3 sprigs curry leaves - shredded
1/2 tbsp ginger paste
Salt to taste
3 tbsp oil

To serve with
Salad leaves
Lime or lemon - sliced

Mix and marinate fish with all the ingredients listed above except oil.
Cover with glad wrap and keep in the fridge until meal time.
Next is to drizzle oil in a portable grill and grill fish on both sides.
Serve with salad leaves and lime.
Don't forget to trend alongside "cook with nava-k"on every other social media please!!
