Grilled Stuffed Pomfret with Green Chutney

                                                                              


I did a Guest post of this Grilled Pomfret recipe stuffed with Green Chutney some time back in Brandina's space. This is my first recipe with the home made green chutney I used for my Kolambi Bhaat/Prawns Rice recipe. Mint-Coriander chutney, also known as "Green/Hari chutney " is a popular condiment in South Asian cuisines.Green chutney is added in sandwiches /chat recipes, also a favorite accompaniment with crispy samosas and dhoklas.  You can either grill the fish over medium hot coals outdoors or broil it  in the oven. In the main article I have explained in details how to remove the backbone of the fish, you can ask your fish monger to do the same for you.








Preparation time :45 minutes to 1 hour, includes de-boning the fish
Cooking time : 12 to 14 minutes
Serves: 2




Ingredients for marination :
  • 1 whole pomfret, a little more than a lb.
  • juice of half a lemon
  • Salt and Pepper powder, to taste
     fish stuffed with green chutney   


Ingredients for the Mint-Coriander chutney used as stuffing: 
  • 1/2 cup mint leaves
  • 1 and 1/2 cup coriander leaves
  • a handful roasted ground nuts
  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds, roasted
  • 2" piece ginger, sliced
  • 1 medium sized red onion, chopped 
  • 2 green chilies, with very little heat, mostly used for flavors
  • juice of  half a lemon
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tbsp of oil

Directions :

Prepare the fish , marinade for 30 minutes. Prepare the Green chutney and stuff it inside the fish ,  gently coat both the sides of the fish  with the same , drizzle a tbsp of oil on top and broil for 6 to 7 minutes on each side in a oven safe baking tray.  Take out of the oven and let cool. Enjoy the dish as an appetizer with sliced onion and green chutney , can serve as a meal with rice /mashed potato /veggies of your choice.

  44. whenever i come to your blog and see only fish it reminds me of my days spent in childhood and teens... like this grilled pomfret.

    my mom makes something similar with pomfret stuffed with the spicy goan reichado masala and sometimes with green coconut chutney.
