Meen Masala Mackerel

Meen Masala Mackerel - Recipe | Spice Trekkers

We ate this almost every day one our most recent trip to India and we were still asking for more! It’s as fast as it is simple.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb fish filets (kinfish, mackerel, salmon, etc.)
  • 2 Tbsp Meen Masala
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 inch ginger, peeled and chopped
  • Juice of one lime or lemon
  • Salt, to taste
  • 3 Tbsp coconut oil
  • Cilantro, chopped, for garnish

Method

  1.  Gently rinse filets in cold water. Place fish, skin-side down, on a few paper towels. Place 2-3 sheets of paper towels on top to dry. Chop into equal-sized pieces and place in a bowl.
  2. Grind spices in a mortar. Add chopped ginger and garlic and reduce to a purée. Add lime juice and salt to taste, then stir marinade.
  3. Add marinade to bowl and rub over fish pieces, ensuring each piece is coated evenly. Marinate 20-30 minutes.
  4. Heat a pan on medium. Add oil and add fish, skin-side down.
  5. Cook 2-3 minutes before flipping. Continue cooking another 2-3 minutes until fish is cooked through.
  6. Serve garnished with chopped cilantro.
