We visited California during Christmas vacation. The main focus of our trip this time was meeting our friends. Apart from enjoying a lot in their company, I also learnt many things from each one of them. Everyone treated us with such delicious homemade food.
This particular dish was served to us at our friends Mehnaz and Hardeep’s home. They made this delicious baked fish with salmon. When I tasted this first,I immediately noticed a very pleasant spice which I never use in fish dishes. They said it was ajwain. I could not stop going for seconds and thirds. I normally prefer eating fish with rice/rotis, so when they served as starter, I had my own doubts. But V and I loved this dish. When I came back, I made this with tilapia (because that is what I had in my freezer). I am sure this will taste great with any other fishes.
If you do not have oven, heat a tava and shallow fry the pieces.
