Fish Tikka. Healthy, flavorful, delicious – these spiced fish skewers tick all the boxes. The classic pairing of fish with aromatic spices makes it a showstopper appetizer at your next gathering.
There’s nothing I love more than simple healthy meals everyday of the week. But on busy days, healthy cooking is super hard to achieve, so I make sure to incorporate easy to make dishes that are also packed with goodness into our weekly menu.
As you know, fish is a natural source of nutrients that are vital for your health and wellbeing. And it’s such a versatile ingredient that’s so perfect to create delicious meals the whole family will love.
Like chicken tikka, fish tikka features delicious fish marinated in aromatic spices cooked in a tandoor. Trust me, these succulent fish fillets taste amazing. If you haven’t tried this yet, you’re missing out. So, let’s gather the ingredients and start cooking.
The marinade used in this recipe is the major game changer. It makes the fish so flavorful and delicious that it just melts in your mouth. I’ve never imagined tikka made with fish can be so irresistible. It’s a killer!
Again, the recipe is super simple starting from the marination to the final grilling section. The marinade is a simple combo of traditional spices commonly used in an Indian kitchen. This includes ground turmeric, ground cumin, ground coriander, garam masala, and black pepper powder. You’ll also need ginger paste, garlic paste, yogurt and lemon juice in this marinade.
Coat the fish pieces really well in the marinade, and let it sit in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes. If you’re time-poor, thread them onto the skewers straightaway and grill them to perfection.
Fish cooks really quick, so this fish tikka is perfect even for your weekday menu. To upgrade these skewers to a healthy lunch or dinner, pair with your favorite salad or even a bowl of fragrant rice.
