Grilled Pomfret

You won't find this fish in Pike's Place, I got it from Uwajimaya and they also cleaned it for me. My husband loved it with khamiri roti, onions and lime .

(prep time 30 mins)
(serves 2)

Pomfret fish (whole) approx 1 lbs
Greek yogurt 3 Tbs
Red thai chilies 2 (med)
Lime juice 2 Tbs
Carom seeds (Ajwain) 2 tsp
Turmeric 1 tsp
Coarse black pepper 1 tsp
Cumin 1 tsp


Make a few cuts across the fish.
Combine all of the spices, lime juice, yogurt and rub the paste liberally over the fish and inside the cuts.
Marinade it in the fridge for 30 mins.
Rub a little oil or butter on both sides. Do this again when you turn the fish.
I baked this in a pre-heated oven for 8 mins at 400 over a rack and then broiled it for 2-3 mins each side on high. This should also be great for grilling outdoors. Make sure to cover the fins and tail of the fish with some aluminum foil before you broil or grill as they blacken quick and catch fire.
