Peppery Lemon Fish

Recipe By : Niru Gupta
Type: Fish/Seafood Serving: 4-6 persons


  • Fillets of fish, 8
  • (Marinated in lemon juice and salt for 15-20 minutes and rinsed)
  • Maida (refined flour), mixed with salt and black pepper in a large polythene bag 1/4 cup (30 g)
  • Oil, a thin layer in a frying pan
  • Mix together:
  • Cornflour 2 tbsp
  • Salt 2 tsp or to taste
  • Sugar 1 tsp
  • Lemon juice ¼ cup
  • Hari Kali Mirch, crushed 2 tbsp
  • Lemon grass, chopped 1 tbsp
  • Water 1 cup
  • Lemon Grass or garnish of your choice


  • Wipe the fish dry. Put it in the bag and shake well to coat. Remove and dust off the extra maida.
  • Heat the oil and add the fish over high heat. When all the pieces are added, lower the heat and let the fish cook for about 2 minutes. Increase the heat and turn the fish over. Lower the heat and cook again for about 2 minutes (you will have to judge—it should not over cook, as soon as it is opaque all through, it is done.

  • While the fish is cooking, bring the sauce ingredients to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer for a minute.

  • Drain the fillets over absorbent paper and transfer on to a serving dish.

  • Pour hot sauce over the fish and serve garnished with the lemon grass.
