Preparation Time: 5 minutes / Marinating time: 20 to 30 minutes

  1. Most supermarkets now carry tandoori paste. You can usually find it in the ethnic food aisle where Indian and Asian sauces are displayed.


Tandoori paste

1/4 cup (50 mL)

Low-fat yogurt

1/4 cup (50 mL)

Freshly squeezed lemon juice

1 Tbsp (15 mL) 

4 Haddock fillets

14 oz (420 g)


  1. In a shallow dish, combine tandoori paste, yogurt and lemon juice. Add fish, turning to coat evenly. Cover and refrigerate for 20 to 30 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat broiler, with rack set 4 inches (10 cm) from the top.
  2. Place fish on baking sheet and broil for 10 minutes or until fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork and the top is lightly browned.
  3. Serving Idea: For a balanced meal, serve with basmati rice and steamed sugar snap peas.
