Yogurt Marinade

  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin seed
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • Dash of paprika
  • Lemon wedges


  • 1 pound bluefish fillets, skinned, cut into two servings


  1. Yogurt Marinade: Combine lemon juice, ginger, garlic, coriander, cumin, yogurt and oil. Arrange fillets in a shallow glass dish just large enough to hold fish in one layer.
  2. Fish: Pour marinade over fish and let the bluefish marinate, covered, in refrigerator for at least 4 hours. Turn fish occasionally.
  3. Heat grill. Drain bluefish, reserving the marinade. Cook for about 4 minutes, then turn over carefully with spatula and baste again with marinade.
  4. When done, remove carefully with a spatula to heated plates, garnish with paprika and lemon wedges.

Serves 2.
