Here is a simple fish recipe that can be whipped up in about 15-20 minutes, fish cooks really fast and my all time favorite ingredient when making fish is lime or lemon, lime reduces the sharp smell of fish and gives it a super amazing punch, the combination of garlic ginger paste and lime in the fish marinade is magical, let the fish marinate well in the marinade so that the flavors and infuse in well, once you throw the fish in the pan it cooks in no time.
Easy Fish steak with potatoes
300g fish steak (tuna)
1 tablespoon garlic ginger paste
1/2 teaspoon garam
Juice of 2 lime
Salt to taste
3 medium size tomatoes roughly cut
2 tbspn tomato paste
2 onions roughly cut
1 green pepper roughly cut
Handful coriander
4 large potatoes sliced and deep fried
1 tablespoon olive oil
Marinate the fish with lime juice, salt garlic, ginger paste and Garam masala. Rub the marinade well and let it marinate for 30 minutes. While the fish is marinating, in a blender put in the tomatoes, green pepper, onions and coriander and blend into a smooth paste. In a sauce pan pour in 1 tablespoon of olive oil and then pan fry the fish until golden brown for about 3 minutes each side. Add tomato paste to the blended mixture and pour onto the fish.
