Cod in A Spicy Yogurt Crust

No ratings yet
Everyday cod takes on a touch of the Middle East in this recipe. A delicious mixture of herbs and spices is added to the yogurt marinade, which forms a crisp coating to the fish when grilled. Haddock could be used instead of cod, and either steaks or fillets would be equally suitable in this dish.

  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh mint
  • 1 medium onion or 2 large spring onions, skinned and roughly chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves skinned and crushed
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 2 tbsp coriander seeds
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp dried dill
  • 5 oz natural yogurt
  • salt and pepper
  • 4 thick cod or haddock steaks or fillets each weighing about 8 oz


  • First make the marinade mixture. Put the mint, onion, garlic, paprika, coriander, cumin, dill and yogurt in a blender or food processor and process until a thick paste is formed. Season the mixture to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Place the fish in a single layer in a shallow dish.
  • Spread the paste all over the top of the fish and leave in a cool place to marinate for 2-3 hours.
  • Cook under a hot grill, basting occasionally, until the fish is cooked and the yogurt mixture has formed a crust. Serve straight away with rice and chutney, accompanied by a green salad.
