Curry Basted Fish

The depth of flavour created in mere minutes with this dish is nothing short of amazing. If you don’t have mahi mahi, use another kind of fish. If it’s thinner, just take a couple of minutes off the cooking time.

Time: 15 minutes

Serves: 4


1 tablespoon grapeseed or other neutral-flavoured oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 clove garlic – finely chopped or grated
1 teaspoon garam masala
1 teaspoon chili powder
½ teaspoon kosher salt
¼ teaspoon turmeric
4 4-ounce mahi mahi filets
1 tablespoon cilantro – chopped



Preheat broiler on high.

In a suitable bowl, stir together the oil, lemon juice, garlic, garam masala, chili powder, salt and turmeric.

Place the fish on a foil-lined pan and baste with the spice mixture.

Broil, basting occasionally for five to seven minutes or until just cooked through.

Plate sprinkled with cilantro and serve immediately.

    Scrumptious! Made this with cod this evening. Yesterday we had broiled fish at a local restaurant; it was fine, but your recipe is much tastier, quicker & less expensive. These same ingredients work well with roasted cauliflower as well. You can toss in whole garlic cloves for extra flavour.
