Tandoori fish with accompaniments

Method

  • Blend the yoghurt, garlic and the juice of 1 lime with 1 green chilli, 2 tspn garam masala, the ginger, food colourings and a pinch of salt in a food processor.
  • Transfer the marinade to a large bowl bowl. Add the fish, toss well and refrigerate for 45 mins, turning a couple of times. 
  • When ready, preheat oven to the highest degree.
  • To make the mint chutney, combine the remaining green chilli, garam masala and garlic with the mint, spring onions, sugar, juice of 2-3 limes, a pinch of salt and ground pepper. Taste for seasoning and set aside.
  • Place the red onions with about 1 tbsp lime juice, the paprika, cayenne and a pinch of salt in another bowl and massage in with your hands. Set aside to develop flavours.
  • Place a large sheet of kitchen foil on a large heavy-bottomed baking tray and spray with oil. Then top with the fish and cook on the high shelf in the oven (or BBQ) for about 10-12 mins. 
  • Spoon the condiments into small bowls and serve alongside the fish.
