Tandoori Fish / Baked Fish using Tandoori Masala

Here is a simple, easy to make, healthy & tasty treat for fish lovers using Indian masala.


Any types of fish (with more flesh) - 2 medium size fishes

To Marinate:

Ginger-garlic paste - 1 to 1½ tbsp 
Garam masala - 1 tsp 
Turmeric powder – ½ tsp 
Chilli powder - 1 tsp Coriander powder - 1 tsp 
Curd -.1 tablespoon 
Juice of 1 lime
Salt - to taste
Red colour - 2 pinch (optional; photo you see here is without using colour)


Wash the fish well and make slits on both sides of the fish.

Mix all the ingredients under “To Marinate” into a thick paste in a bowl and coat the marinate all over the fish (use your fingers to do this).

Marinate for at least for 1 to 3 hrs in the refrigerator.

Preheat oven to 250 deg. C. Grease a baking dish with oil and arrange the fish slices on the dish leaving space between each fish.

Bake at 250 deg. C for 20 to 30 minutes (temperature and time will vary according to the oven and thickness of the fish) until the fish is fully cooked.

Turn the fish in between to cook both sides evenly. Serve hot with slices of onion and wedges of lemon.


Adjust spice level to suit your taste.

You can also use barbecue or grill method with the same recipe.
