Grilled recipes are favorite in weekends and mostly when I have to host a lawn party. These are simple, delicious and quick to make. If you are arranging one such party this week or any coming week then you may try this grilled fish kebabs I am sure your guest will love this.


Fish fillets     250grams
Onion          3 chopped
Garlic paste     1 table spoon
Ginger paste 1 teaspoon
Cayenne powder 1/2 teaspoon
Cardamom powder 2pinch
Cinnamon powder 2 pinch
Clarified butter    2 teaspoon
Greek/hung yogurt  100 gram 
Salt and pepper  to taste 


Cut the fillet in squares. In a bowl take hung yogurt and with it mix, ginger garlic paste, cayenne, cinnamon, cardamom powder, salt and pepper. Mix well. Now marinate the fish fillets in this mixture for at least an hour. Meanwhile fry the onion in a skillet till golden brown and crispy, drain the excess oil and keep aside. Now put the marinated fish into skewers and grill them in a tandoor or charcoal griller for 5 minutes each side or till done. Brush with clarified butter while you grill. If you don’t have a charcoal griller then don’t worry, grill it in your micro grill  but to give grilled fish kebabs a charcoal effect- take a piece of charcoal and heat it in an open flame, put it in a metal bowl. Place the kebabs in a plate put the hot charcoal bowl in middle and now pour a spoon of clarified butter in it. Fumes will come out. Cover the whole plate with a metal lid and give it a five minutes stand by. You will get yummy charcoal flavor kebabs.(* But those who can’t manage, and don't have any idea how to heat the charcoal please don’t try it.) Now arrange grilled fish kebabs on a serving plate and top them with crispy fried onions and lemon wedges. I think this week end you will rock your lawn party.

Enjoy A Lovely Weekend!

We eat fish every week. Costco sells some really great tilapia filets that would be perfect with this recipe. These are a keeper!

A little tad strong on the cayenne for me personally...however the blend of all the other ingredients would make an incredible statement on those fish kebabs.

Very appetizing recipe ;o)

Flavourful wishes,
