Asian grilled fish fillet and wild rice salad - Ramadan Main course

While keeping up with Ramadan meals I am blogging a light summery dish that should provide nutrition as well as taste great.It is so easy to prepare and hence saves kitchen time.It is absolutely healthy too.

Asian grilled fish

Firm fleshed fish fillets 500 gms
One bunch coriander greens with stalk 
Lemon grass - 2 stalks ( tough part discarded and the tender stalk bruised with a cleaver and then shredded)
Red chillies -2
Ginger- 2 inch ginger piece finely shredded
1 small can coconut milk 
2 tbs red chilli preserve/ paste in oil 
2 tbs peanut oil
Salt as required
White pepper powder a little 

Make a paste of coriander leaves,lemongrass,red chillies,and ginger. Add the peanut oil to the paste followed by the chilly preserve and then mix in the coconut milk remember it should be a thick marinade so don't add more.Now use this as a marinade for the fish fillets that have been seasoned with salt and some white pepper and let it marinate in the refrigerator for about four hrs and then grill the fish either in the oven or in a grid pan. You can also fry the fish  if you prefer. This marinade can be used for shrimps too. In case you live in India and cannot find the chilly preserve in oil you could use any good quality red chilly pickle like Priya red chilly pickle in the same quantity as above but then check the salt level before adding any extra.

Wild rice Salad
300 gms cooked basmati rice
200 gms wild rice cooked 
8 walnuts halved 
3 onions finely chopped
1 yellow pepper finely sliced
1 green bell pepper finely sliced
50 gms raisins 
1 inch ginger grated
Few coriander leaves finely sliced

Dressing
50 ml apple juice
50 ml  olive oil
1 tbs mild mustard powder
1 tsp freshly ground  peppers
1/2 tsp chat masala


In a large bowl mix all ingredients for salad cover and refrigerate.While serving dress the salad with the dressing, add some salt mix to combine the flavors.In Dubai Tilda basmati and wild rice combined packs are available you can use that for ease.
