wow!!!!wht a great recipe..thank u for posting this wonderful recipe


yummy n very simple recipe


This recipe was very tasty. I used catfish fillet instead of tilapia and it came out very good. Thanks.


This is an excellent recipe. The frying of the onions and spices beforehand, gives it a real Indian touch! We loved it! Thank you!


When you bake the fish you don`t need to add coriander powder also you don`t have to use any oil at all. You can marinate the clean fish with salt, turmeric powder, black pepper powder,chilly powder, ginger paste, garlic paste and lemon juice. when you ready to bake the marinated fish you can put chopped onions,chopped tomatoes and chopped coriander leaves top of the fish all over(depends on the quantity of fish make a guess to use these stuffs)and cover the fish throughly while you bake it.

The chopped cilantro is optional and is used for garnishing the dish. Enjoy!! Dee Hess
