Tandoori Fish Tikka


Recipe By: Varsha Pokle



1 pound fish fillet cut into pieces – I used Tilapia fillets.

1/2 cup thick yogurt

2 TBSP paprika (if you want it spicy, use some hot pepper flakes). I made mine really spicy

1 TSP turmeric

Salt as per your taste

1 TBSP ground black pepper

3 to 4 TBSP Tandoori Masala (Readily available in Indian Stores)

1/4 cup Lemon juice


Marinade the fish with all the ingredients listed above and keep in the refrigerator for a couple of hours (minimum 4 to 5 hours). I kept mine marinated overnight

There are two ways you can make your Tandoori Fish Tikka. Either in the oven or on the stove.

Stove Top Method:

Heat a flat griddle. If you wish you can brush it with oil. I did not

Once the griddle or pan is piping hot, add the fish one by one and very carefully.

Fry the fish on both sides for 2 to 3 minutes each on medium to high heat

Oven Method:

Pre-heat over to 375 degrees F

Brush an ovenproof pan with little oil and arrange the fish pieces on it. Make sure  they don’t touch each other

Let the fish bake in the oven for 10 to 12 minutes. No need to turn the fish

How to serve:

You can enjoy these delicious and healthy fish tikka just like that with some hot sauce

You can use these fish tikkas as the filling for tacos or fish roll

You can serve these fish tikkas on a bed of rice or quinoa
