Fishy Tales

One of our readers Vinita Rishi shares two quick fish recipes with us. The best part is, the ingredients used are easy to find and the recipes even easier to make!

A naval wife, a mother of an adorable baby boy and an interior design consultant, Vinita is also an amazing cook.

Here are a couple of quick and easy fish recipes that Vinita shares exclusively for The Lifestyle Portal.

Recipe 1: Green Masala Fish

  1. Make a paste of fresh coriander leaves, ginger, garlic, mint, basil and green chilli.
  2. Season with lemon juice and salt (just like a regular green chutney)
  3. Marinate the fish of your choice (ravas, pomfret, basa or bhetki) for 2-3 hrs in the green paste with some olive oil and curd.
  4. Make a foil packet and put it in a pre-heated oven for 6-7 min depending upon the size of the fish fillet.

Recipe 2: Lemon Coriander Fish

For the marinade:

  1. You need 1 tbsp of olive oil for each fillet of 4-5″
  2. A dash of balsamic vinegar
  3. Lemon juice to taste
  4. 1/2 tsp of brown sugar
  5. Grated garlic to taste
  6. Finely chopped coriander and spring onions
  7. A dash of chilli flakes and salt.


  1. Use a fish fillet of your choice – ravas, basa, pomfret or bhetki
  2. Pour this marinade over the fish fillets and let it rest for 2-3 hrs.
  3. Just before placing it in the pre-heated oven add a few drops of sweet chilli sauce over each fillet.
  4. Bake in open tray till fish is flaky

    GREEN FISH MASALA sounds appetising – must try.

    Thank you for the wonderful recipes. I tried the green masala fish today using tilapia and it was mouthwatering. My husband (who is not a seafood person) liked it very much and so did my two year old. I made a few changes though, I was out of mint so left that out also omitted the olive oil. I baked the fish at 350 F for about 15 mins and it was perfect.
    I’m sure the mint would have added the freshness to the dish. This is definitely a keeper. Thank you once again for the recipe.
