Spicy Tandoori Fish with Yogurt Cucumber & Mint

20 Jan

Luxurious warming spices, moist succulent fish & a cooling yogurt sauce is this simple man`s plan to healthier eating today. What I have for you is Spicy Tandoori Fish with Yogurt Cucumber & Mint. While I don`t have a Tandoor this was simply baked in my oven & the end result was nothing less than extraordinary. I paired this with a Quinoa Sprout Salad for a great combination. This spice mix would be spectacular with chicken, lamb or goat as well.

  1. Oh wow! The combination of the ingredients sound so flavorful! Most of my yogurt sauces have had either cilantro of parsley. The mint sounds so appealing! This is another recipe to put on my “Try Soon” list!

    • Thank you Katie, I so appreciate your comments & feedback!! The sauce was really good but what got me was the spice mix & paste. I literally licked the bowl. The use of coconut oil made such a huge difference.
