Baked Tandoori Catfish, Brown Basmati Rice and Steamed Cauliflower


I was looking for a quick, uncomplicated, spicy and yummy lunch at home. Most importantly, a lunch that did not involve me wearing the spices for the rest of day. Hmmmmm………

I found my answer in a packet of tandoori spice and the oven.

    1. Catfish fillets (any neutral white fish ready to soak up flavorings will do) coated with
    2. A mixture of (depending on your heat preference) 1 or 2 table spoons Tandoori spice (any brand will do or you could make it but I was looking for the “fast food” way out) + 2 table spoons plain yoghurt + 2 table spoons vegetable oil. Optional: sprinkle with chopped onions, green chilies and cilantro.
    3. Bake in oven 425 degrees for 30 minutes.
    4. Cook brown rice and steam cauliflower or broccoli as sides. No spice or involved cooking needed. The spicy fish can carry the flavor. Cook the rice first. I hate having to wait for the sides to be done.

Oh the joy of lazy cooking with packaged spices without following package directions.
