It can’t get simpler than this!
- A fish that can be baked comfortably like Pomfret, preferably weighing between 300-500 gms.
- Lemongrass about 2 tablespoons after chopping into small pieces.
- 5-6 cloves of garlic.
- 2 green chilies.
- Two tablespoons of softened butter.
Wash and pat dry the fish. Make slits about a centimeter apart. Pulverize the lemongrass, garlic, chilies and some salt in a mixie. Massage it into the fish and try and fill it inside every slit. Let the fish marinate in this fragrant mix for at least 15-20 minutes.
Wrap foil on a baking tray. Rub one tablespoon of butter on the foil. It should be in shape and size of the fish. Place the fish on top of this butter. Rub the remaining butter on the top of the fish.
Place tray in a preheated oven and grill for 30 mins at 180C.
