Green Masala Grilled Fish

 Green Masala Grilled Fish 

Howdy folks?! I have been quite busy with life in general. Last week, I happened to experiment with a green masala marinade for grilling. And when something becomes a success I just can't wait to share it here! Oh BOY! I simply loved it! There are a lot of greens going into this marinade and yet tastes delicious!

I love grilled fish or meat in general, which we mostly tend to buy from restaurants and costs you a fortune when ordering a couple more seafood. Instead grilling your own fish can give you another level of satisfaction, as you know what all goes into the marinade and you can enjoy the flavors every time you toss a hot piece of grilled fish to your taste buds! 

 Now you can have grilled fish prepared with this special green marinade at the comfort of your own home and won't cost you a fortune too! I used the NINJA health grill for grilling the fish and when cooked on the grill pan, it was good too!

Ingredients :

  • 2-3 Fish, butterfly cut (I used Sultan Ibrahim fish here)
  • Mint Leaves (handful)
  • Curry leaves (2 sprigs)
  • Coriander leaves including roots (handful)
  • 2 Shallots 
  • 1 inch piece Ginger
  • 2-3 Garlic cloves
  • 2 Green chillies (increase as per your preference )
  • 1 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp Fennel seeds
  • 1/2 tsp Fenugreek seeds
  • 1 tsp Whole Black Pepper
  • 1/4 tsp Turmeric powder
  • Salt, as required
  • 2 tbsp Coconut oil
  • Red Chilli flakes, optional


  1. In a small mixer grinder, add all the ingredients except for red chilli flakes 
  2. Add the red chilli flakes (optional, adding it just for a pop of color) to the marinade and rub the marinade to the butterfly cut fish and allow the fish to marinate at least for 30 minutes.

  3. Grill the fish for around 6 minutes each side and no more.
  4. Enjoy with sides of your choice, I had the grilled fish with Rice Pilaf and garlic mayo! I usually like roasted potatoes / veggies for sides.

Make sure to make a fine paste of the marinade, when grinding.
On the NINJA Health grill, I grilled at 240 deg C for a total of 10 minutes.
