After long day of work when I returned home today I find one of my high school friend Suket dropped a message in my voicemail that he will be coming tonight in my house for dinner. We use to call Suket a pussy cat in school because he was just mad about fish. Even you boil some fish and sprinkle some salt and pepper his mouth will start watering. So for such a friend I know what I have to cook and fortunately I have some fish in my refrigerator, so I don’t have to run to market. I know I have to cook something tasty yet fast as I am tired too . So I experimented and cook this fish in orange sauce it turned out awesome. Now I am waiting for Suket to come and in the mean time let me share this recipe with you all . I hope you will like it.


Fish cube 500grms
Onion 4 medium size(paste)
Ginger 1tbsp (paste)
Paprika 1tbsp
powder ½ tsp
Vegetable oil 5tbsp
Raisin 12
Orange juice 2 cup
Sugar ¼ tsp
Salt and
pepper according to taste
Fresh coriander Finely chopped (optional)


Wash the fish cube and marinate it with salt pepper and ¼ tsp of nutmeg powder. Now put a pan on flame give 3 tbsp of oil and sauté the marinated fish for some time say about 5 min. After that take out the fish from pan and keep aside. Now in that pan add 2 tbsp of oil and then give the onion paste sauté a little bit .
