Mint Coriander Baked Fish

Easy Mint Coriander Baked Fish! A no-effort take on something that can be tender and flavourful. People are used to baking chicken but not fish – and when they try to – sometimes they don’t know how to go about it. Mint and Coriander are an essential part of Indian kitchens. While this is not an Indian recipe, like always, I have tried to incorporate readily and easily available ingredients with easy baking/cooking.

Mint Coriander Baked Fish

Healthy, easy, few ingredients and no fuss!

The only fussy part about this recipe is washing the leaves and fish. Other than that - as easy as it can get!

  • 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves washed
  • 1/2 cup fresh coriander leaves washed
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt (DAHI)
  • 5-6 pieces of fish - with or without bone (or one medium sized fillet) cleaned
  • 1/3 teaspoon cornstarch (thickening agent)
  • Oil for greasing the baking pan - olive/canola/regular vegetable oil
  • Fresh mint/coriander leaves for garnishing or toasted sesame seeds
  1. Wash and clean the fish. Place them in a medium sized bowl. 

  2. Place the mint, coriander, and yogurt in a blender pot and pulse till everything has come together smoothly. 

  3. Add the salt and cornstarch to the green paste and pulse it again.

  4. Pour the smooth green marinade over the fish. Gently toss the fish to ensure everything is evenly coated. 

  5. Cover the bowl with cling film or a plate and let it rest for 30 mins. You can also refrigerate it overnight and bake it the next day. You can also skip the resting period and bake immediately after assembling the ingredients.

  6. Prepare a baking tray by greasing it with oil (I used canola oil). Carefully transfer the marinated fish to it. Make sure you add every last drop of the marinade along with it. No wastage!

  7. Bake in a preheated oven at 200C for 12-15 minutes or till the fish has cooked through. Halfway through the baking time, take it out once and flip the fish for them to bake evenly. Stir the gravy-like paste once as well.

  8. Garnish and serve. Enjoy!
