Fish Fry

On a boring rainy day, husband and kids want some thing to eat 'HOT' they said. I don't want to make deep fried varities as they consume more oil. Thought to make use of the kitchen gadgets, the microwave and the oven. It will take longer than the usual deep frying method. Still worthy. Had some frozen fish filllets. I have added the minimum spices with a hint of lemon juice. The out come is hubby said. Yummy for my tummy... my son said.
Microwaved and then oven baked fish fry

Ingredients:4-5 medium sized fish fillets
1/2 tsp ginger-garlic paste
1 tsp lemon juice
1 pinch of cumin pwd
1 pinch of coriander powder
1 pinch of turmeric pwd
1/2 tsps red chilli pwd
salt to taste
1 tsp of oil

I have chosen frozen variety, so I have washed and thawed the fish for a while.
Combine ginger garlic paste, lemon juice, salt, red chilli pwd, turmeric pwd, cumin pwd, coriander pwd and oil in a bowl. Apply this marinade lightly to the fish pieces on both the sides and keep aside for 20-30 mts.
Microwave the pieces for 2-3 minutes on each side.
Ready to bake

Pre-heat the oven and take the pieces into a lined baking tray and bake them for about 15-20 mts.
Once its nicely browned, flip over gently to the other side and bake the fish for another 10-12 mts till browned.
Serve hot with onion rings and lemon wedges.
Note: Just to avoid the dry ness, you can cover the baking tray with aluminium foil for the first few minutes.
