Grilled Goan fish ambotic

This is a Goan fish recipe which is generally prepared by  cooking a curry.But sometimes we need something different and what is more exciting than grilling with a traditional recipe.My choice of fish was mackarel which was marinated and full of flavors. and This fish has its own strong taste retains its own flavor even after cooking with so many spices.


Makarel (3 to 4)
4 to 5 Red Kashmiri Chilies
Turmeric 1 tbsp
Cumin seeds 1 tbsp
Black Pepper  2 to 3 tbsp
Cinnamon sticks 1
Green Cardamom 2 to 3
Garlic Cloves  8 to 10
Tamarind  pulp 1 cup soaked seedless
1 tbsp Sugar
Onion 1
ginger 1 inch
Vinegar  1 tbsp
green chillies  2 chopped
Tomato (1/2  chopped )  optional


1.Grind the above ingredients into a wet paste and marinate the fishes for 2 to 3 hours.Stuff their stomach also with the spice mixture.
2.Tamarind will make the paste look dark in color

3.Brush them with any vegetable oil and grill them for 15 minutes at 170 degrees in a preheated oven.
