Directions

  1. Blend the vinegar, garlic, ginger, salt, cayenne, coriander, cumin, and oil in a blender until you have a thick paste. Brush the fish chunks with the mixture to coat evenly and place in a shallow dish; pour the remaining marinade over the fish. Allow to marinate in refrigerator at least 4 hours.
  2. Preheat the oven's broiler. Arrange the marinated fish in a broiler-safe dish, reserving the marinade.
  3. Broil the fish under the preheated broiler on the oven's center rack for 10 minutes; turn the fish and brush with reserved marinade. Continue cooking until the fish flakes easily with a fork, about 7 minutes more. Serve hot.

This is a delicious way to prepare fish. It ended up having a fair bit of sauce so I served it over rice.

This dish was okay. The sauce that the recipe called for was not a paste. When reading recipe I wondered how can this become a paste. I was right liquid consistency not paste.

Wonderful flavor and very moist fish. Thank you, Rina for a very different fish dish. We will be making this again.

I had a dish very much like this at a Taste of Atlanta many years ago. I've wanted a recipe for it ever since then, and here it is! Buying the few items I need tomorrow, and will be enjoying it in the evening.

Hubby and kids loved it. It wasn't as Indian for me as I had hoped for.

really good flavor and moist fish..i used cod...cut the cayenne to 1/2 tsp..might increase that slightly.

I really liked this recipe even though I kinda totally changed it up. All the ingredients were the same, except I substituted powdered ginger for the fresh ginger, and along with the cayenne, it was VERY spicy... So I added cream and milk to tone it down, so it came out creamy but very good. And instead of baking it I threw in it a wok with chicken and fresh spinach, wtih fresh cilantro added at the end. It worked out great considering I improvised last minute, but I will definitely do it again, so thanks Rina!

I found this recipe and just love it. I've made it a few times now and each time it has been great. I've taken it into work for a potluck and it was a success. I used Halibut instead of catfish and just adjusted the cook time.
