I know. I am aware. Fish recipes in this previous space of mine? Spilled over, spilling over and there will be no stop. Can't help it foodies. Basically because we are not big meat eaters, therefore, the other option mostly is fish without a doubt (Meen Muringakka Kulambu/Drumstick Fish Curry, Chilli Lime Fish & Grilled Fish Sandwich). Yep. What's in store today in terms of our cooking style to fish? Obviously, grilling. Not in the oven though (Curried Roast Chicken). But over the stove top portable grill. The portable grill you can buy within, let's say RM30.00? I honestly, am beginning to like this grilling concept due to less oil is better sometimes (Grilled Fish In Banana Leaf, Grilled Spicy Prawns, Otak-Otak, Grilled Mackerel & Grilled Chicken Wings). The question now is, how do we go by to this Spicy Grilled Fish, Indian style fish? Sardines marinated/mixed with chilli flakes, curry leaves, ginger paste and salt, thereafter grilled (Chilli Soy Fish, Assam Fish Curry, Malaysian Indian Fish Curry, Stingray Spicy Sauce, Hong Kong Style Steamed Fish & Vietnamese Fish Soup).
8 small fresh sardine fish - de-gut 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
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.
Gosh, I could smell the aroma from here. Hahaha! Nice one! Hey Nava, I've just cooked fish too, using a new pan that I've bought :)ReplyDelete
