Total Time


Serves 4

Fish Skewers

2 tablespoons olive oil

500g firm white fish – ling, cod or hake, diced

2 tablespoons Patak’s Tikka Masala Paste

2 tablespoons natural yoghurt

1 clove garlic, finely diced

2cm ginger, grated

Carrot Koshimbir

2 carrots, grated

Half small red onion, finely chopped plus extra to serve

Handful of coriander leaves, finely chopped plus extra to serve

1 red chilli, finely chopped

2 tablespoons lemon juice

Serve with roti bread, lime wedges, baby spinach, natural yoghurt and Patak’s Lime Pickle, if desired.


1. Soak four wooden skewers in shallow water bath.

2. Combine Patak’s Tikka Masala Paste, yoghurt, garlic and ginger in medium sized mixing bowl. Add fish and cover well. Leave to marinate in fridge for at least an hour.

3. Preheat the grill or barbeque to medium to high. Skewer the marinated fish onto the wooden skewers and grill for 8 – 10 minutes until cooked to your liking (ensuring they are turned regularly to prevent them burning).

4. To make the koshimbir, combine all the ingredients into a small bowl and mix well. Season with salt and pepper.

5. Spread natural yoghurt on the top of roti bread and sprinkle some koshimbir on top. Place the fish skewers over the koshimbir and top with fresh coriander, baby spinach, red onion and lime wedges.
