Grilled Pomfret

Sunday, January 23, 2011

We have been trying to incorporate more fishes to our daily diet as white meat was known to be a much healthier option as compare to red meat. So I guessed you guys will be seeing more fish dishes post in the near future. Back to my post today, we had bought some pomfrets from our local hypermarts as it was a promotion items. Since we had few fish dishes prepared using steaming methods, grilling comes to my mind when it comes to this fish. All we need to do was to marinate the fish with different spices to enhance it's flavour. Very simple dish yet very satisfying to our taste buds.


1 pomfret, cleaned and slitted
1 tbsp chili powder
1/4 tbsp turmeric powder
1/4 tbsp cumin powder
1/2 tbsp pepper powder
2 lime, juiced
1 inch ginger, turn into paste
3 cloves garlic, turn into paste
1/2 tbsp salt


  1. Wash the pomfret well. Make slit on both sides of the pomfret.
  2. In a small bowl, mix all the ingredients for the marinade.
  3. Marinate the fish well (into the slits and inside of the fish as well) for 1 hour.
  4. Heat oil in the non stick grill pan. Grilled each side for approximately 10 minutes till the fish are flaky to ensure its cooked.
  5. Serve hot.
