Do you love to make marinated fish on the hot grill? I am sure you definitely love to. I always enjoy making fish on the grill rather than frying it in a pan containing lots of oil, because its a healthier way to make fish, plus I love to hear the sound of fish while grilling.

I just marinated fish fillets into easily available spices for 3-4 hours then placed on the grill and left it to be done for 3-4 minutes per side.

You can serve it with garlic mayo sauce or vinegar sauce. Below I have provided the recipe for garlic mayo sauce that will definitely blow your mind with its unique taste.

  • Remove the skin of fish and make 2-3 deep cuts on each fillet by using a sharp knife. This will help to reach all spices deep inside the fish.  
  • In a large container add fish fillets and sprinkle ¾ tablespoon of turmeric powder over fish and rub gently with clean hands. Cover container with a plastic wrap and place aside for 30 minutes. This process will help to remove the smell of fish.  
  • Now wash the fish and spread it on a paper towel or pat dry with a clean cloth. 
  • In a large container transfer fish with ginger garlic paste, gram flour, salt, remaining turmeric powder, cinnamon powder, and cayenne pepper. Toss well to combine. 
  • Now add in lime juice, vinegar, and olive oil. Stir until combined.  
  • Make sure that fish fillets are coated well with the marinade.  
  • Cover container with a plastic wrap and place aside for 2-3 hours. But if you want more flavors marinade it for 4-5 hours.  
  •  Now heat grill on hot coals or on your campfire and brush it with some oil, so that fish does not stick to grill. 
  • Place fish fillets on hot grill and leave to cook for 3-4 minutes per side. Flip fish carefully otherwise it will break.  
  • When done place grilled fish on paper towel or on clean leaves with fresh vegetables.  
  • For making garlic mayo sauce: In a bowl add mayonnaise, lime juice, and garlic, mix until combine. Season with salt and pepper.  
  • Serve fish with garlic mayo sauce and share with your loved ones.
