Tandoori fish is a delicious,tangy and mildly spiced fish baked in the oven.You can use any fleshy fish fillet.I used catfish.You can also use Tuna and tilapia fish for this recipe.This is the best recipe for those who do not like much of fishy flavor.The Tandoori masala and the marination seem to reduce the smell and the result is very soft,moist and tasty.
