  • 250g skinless and boneless fresh white fish (we used cod)
  • 2 tbsp tikka masala paste
  • 4 tbsp Greek-style natural yogurt
  • 2 small naan bread or chapatis
  • knob of garlic butter
  • ½ small red onion, thinly sliced
  • handful coriander leaves
  • ½ lemon, cut into wedges



    Oval in shape with a pronouced bulge on one end, lemons are one of the most versatile…


  1. Heat the grill to the highest setting. Cut the fish into 5cm chunks. Mix together the tikka paste, 2 tbsp yogurt and seasoning. Add the fish and toss to coat, then set aside for 5 mins.

  2. Place the fish on a wire rack over a roasting tin. Grill for 3-4 mins each side, depending on thickness, until cooked through and starting to char a little.

  3. Sprinkle the naan with a little water and grill for 2 mins. Spread the warm naans with garlic butter, top with the fish and drizzle with the remaining yogurt. Scatter over the onion and coriander, and serve with lemon wedges.

I love this dish, I simmer the fish in a pan for a few mins before then putting under the grill for a couple of minutes on each side. Delicious - made a fresh Indian salad of diced cherry plumb tomatoes, diced cucumber, diced onion and some dressing - delicious! especially on a fresh garlic naan

Used this recipe a few times and it works fine with chicken as well if you would like to substitute.

This made a bit of a different dinner. I cooked my fish a bit longer as I was worried it didn't seem done after only 4 minutes. I didn't put my fish on a rack but just put it on a baking tray with the yoghurt on it. That worked well and meant the dish was not dry.

This was just okay. A very dry dish. It definitely needed the garlic butter. I served with spicy chickpeas on the side which added some sauce and colour.
