Hello Everyone, I’m back from a short but much-awaited vacation to Dubai and all I’m craving is some desi khana as we call it (or typical Indian #Comfortfood ) – Tandoori Fish Tikka
It was a fun family vacation with cousins, which means along with all the site seeing, shopping, eating, we had endless conversations.
This was our first trip to Dubai and I was super excited to see the beautiful city and also taste some amazing mix of cuisine (Arabic, Persian, Moroccan and Lebanese).
I’ll definitely do a separate post about the food and beautiful places we visited there.
Now, before we go ahead and talk about this Tandoori Fish Tikka recipe, don’t you agree that when we come back from any trip away from home, you just want to eat your favorite Comfortfood!!!
And literally after unpacking, all I did was quickly get some fish, marinate it in the Tandoori spices and made ourself this Fish Tikka.
(Marinating the Fish in Tandoori Spices + Yogurt Mix)
It’s an extremely easy recipe that can be made any day of the week and perfect for weekend brunch.
I love this Tandoori Fish Tikka recipe even more as it can be even made in a kitchen oven and totally #Glutenfree too.
This dish is extremely popular all over the world because of its light lemony taste and slightly spicy flavors.
The fish is usually marinated for a couple of hours and cooked in a clay oven or Tandoor as they are called in India.
Now for many of us, we don’t have clay oven at home, so we’ll use the good-handy countertop oven or built-in-oven for this recipe.
It’s also a Perfect recipe to try indoor on hot days when you don’t want to fireup the grill but still want something nice and grilled/Tandoori.
*** Extremely Important Tip ***
To give the fish it’s golden char on top, we need to broil the fish once it’s almost cooked. Simply follow the broiling instructions below for achieving the same.
*** Quick TIP ***
If you have extra time on hand, I would suggest to marinate the fish for longer (2-3 hours) or over-night if you have the time.
This helps the fish to soak the flavors evenly.
