Best Ever Indian Fish Fillets in a Chili Sauce

We really enjoyed this fish recipe, it had a great flavor with the sauce, and it was pretty easy to make.  We had it with delicious rice pilaf, and we really liked this.  I used tilapia, our go to fish :), and this was really easy.  For five of us, each serving was 114 calories.  Here's what to do:

12 oz fish (I used tilapia)
2 T lemon juice
1 T cilantro
1 T oil

1 t grated fresh ginger
2 T tomato paste
1 t sugar
1 t salt
1 T chili sauce
1 T malt vinegar
1 1/4 c water

In a large dish with a lid, mix together the lemon juice, cilantro, and oil.  Season the salt well, and marinate it for a few hours.  When ready to cook, heat the broiler to high and broil for 5-7 minutes.  While the fish is broiling, mix together the ginger, tomato paste, sugar, salt, chili sauce, malt vinegar and water in a small pan, and bring to a boil.  Let it simmer while the fish sets, then serve with the fish.  Serve with rice (we served with rice pilaf).

  1. we like fish, but i don't think I would try the sauce. Your dad just scrapes it off and eats the fish. that is why he just gets fish. Do you have a recipe for the pilaf??? Love mom
