  • In the meantime, heat a non stick skillet and cook the leftover marination ,until it has a thicker consistency. You need not use extra oil as the marination already had some oil.  This is a great sauce for the baked fish.
  • Place the fish pieces on a plate , top it with the sauce .
  • Enjoy this dish with Paratha or Rice with any curry of your choice .
