Oven baked Herring, Keralan style, with salad: One evening sorted :-) | Kukskitchen

Being a native of Kerala, fish flows in my menus. Shallow fried spicy keralan fish is OMG yummy. My SIL's dad always says, what's there in life if one can't have a fillet of fried king fish for lunch. Hat's of uncle :-)



Recently the whole health-fitness theme has made me try baking/grilling my fish and chicken. A tiny splash of olive oil is all it needs for that heavenly taste. My friend S is a veteran on grilling fish, she adds fenugreek powder to the marinade which helps take  the fishy smell away.



One can try baking all sorts of fish. I luv salmon, mackerel, sardines and recently herring the best for Keralan style marinade.



Herring, also called 'the silver of the sea' are very high in the long-chain Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. They are a source of vitamin D. Now, who will buy herring the next time u r at the fish mongers?

Ingredients


Herrings - 2

Red chilli powder - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Fenugreek powder  - 1/8 tsp
Pepper - 4 swirls of the mill
salt to taste
Oil -  2 tbsp



Method


- Preheat ur oven to 200 degree celsius (fan assisted oven)

- Clean and marinate ur fish in the above dry powders.

- Place ur fish on the baking tray lined with aluminium foil. Splash the oil on top.

- Bake for 15 minutes.

Fish in

Fish out


- Serve hot with a salad to eat with chappathi or rice.


cheers
