Smoked spices and fish

Fish cooked with smoked spices

This is an easy recipe that can be made in minutes. I do like to marinate the fish for an hour or two but this is not necessary. For convenience, you could allow the fish to marinate for up to 24 hours.

As you can see from the picture, I served this in a pan fried chapati with salad and a yogurt raita and hot sauce. It was fantastic. for ease, you could just serve the fish on its own with a little rice or French bread.

The smoked spices give the fish a nice oak smoked flavour similar tandoori fish. I love it.
