We bought a mullet fillet at the grocery store, not knowing what it tasted like since neither of us had had it before. Adventures and all that. 😀 Turns out it’s a white fish with a nice delicate flavour that goes very well with tandoori paste.
- 1/4 cup tandoori paste
- 1/4 cup coconut cream
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 600 grams mullet or other white fish, cut into pieces
Combine the tandoori paste, coconut cream, and salt. Put fish into a pan and pour mixture over it. Simmer until fish is cooked, about 8-10 minutes for sliced 1″ thick.
This is not a traditional use for tandoori paste. Tandoori, by definition, is a clay oven in which food is baked. However, I believe – and quite firmly so 🙂 – that recipes should be adapted to what suits a person. This is just one more example of adapting a recipe to another purpose.
If you don’t have mullet, use another white fish. If all you have is dry coconut milk powder, make it double strength of the thick coconut milk recipe on the container.
This fish ended up being a hit with both Fahim and I as well as his parents. 🙂 Happiness reigns. 😀
