BAKED TILAPIA

Having fish fry with lunch or dinner is a comfort meal for me. Its the fabulous snack that I can have at any time. There are couple of varieties of preparation, but I like to try with one simple normal masala frequently. The fish I have used is Tilapia but its equally good with Pomfret and shrimps also.


INGREDIENTS

1 Tilapia fish.

3 tsp Chilli powder.

1 tsp Turmeric powder.

1/2 tsp Hing.

1 tsp Crushed pepper.

2 tbsp Coconut oil.

2 tbsp Lemon juice.

Salt to taste.

METHOD.

Clean the fish and score it by making cuts an inch or more. Wash and pat it dry with tissue.

Season fish with salt and lemon juice and allow to rest for 5 min.


Meanwhile, in a bowl, mix rest all the above ingredients.


Marinate with masala both inside and outside of the fish and allow to rest for half an hour.


Bake it in an pre heated oven for 15 to 20 min or till its done. Fish should flake easily with a fork when its done.


Enjoy!!
