95: Baked Tandoori Pomfret (Fish)

Pomfret always holds a special place to my heart....my love for seafood started with fried Pomfret....the fish has such a good texture which I absolutely can not find in the Tilapias or salmons of the world....

3 slices of Pomfret (I used fillets, whole Pomfret can be used too)
1 tsp. ginger garlic paste
2 Tbsp. coriander powder
2 Tbsp. cumin powder
1 tsp. chili powder
Juice of 1 big lemon
Salt to taste

Wash the fish. Mix all the spices and the lemon juice into a thick paste in a bowl. Apply the paste over the fish coating each slice thickly. Marinate for over an hour in the refrigerator. Pre-heat oven to 375 F. Grease a baking tray and place the fish slices on the tray. Bake for 30 mins. (if baking a lighter fish like Tilapia, lower baking time to 15 mins.). Serve hot with sliced onions marinated in lemon juice and lemon wedges with some warm rice.
