Snapper in a snap

Total Time ~ 15 min


  • 1/2 lb fresh snapper chopped to manageable size pieces
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1 tbls olive oil
  • 1 tbls balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbls red wine
  • 1 tbls ground mustard
  • 4-5 chopped curry leaves
  • 2 tbls whole milk yogurt (optional)
  • Salt to taste
  • Cayenne to taste


  • Mix all ingredients (except the snapped) in a bowl and dip the fish pieces (or if time permits marinate for 30-45 min).
  • Heat a non-stick pan and cook the marinated snapper in low-medium heat.
  • Cook till the fish flakes easily (~ 6-8 min)
  • Boom done!

Serving suggestion:

This obviously goes well with rice, but do me a favor and try it with a load of vegetables. I ate this along with a pound of sauteed mixed vegetables (ivy gourd (kovakkai/tindora), carrots, peas, garlic and onions) sauteed in coconut oil and other spices and it paired up really well.

    Can I just say how much I love these recipes? All the stuff I read about is finally making sense. Gave me a big kick to see kovakai mentioned here. I have all these ingredients at home and I am going to make this this weekend. Thanks!

      Thank you Rainee! let us know how you liked it.

      You might want to add some yogurt to the marinade for better flavor.

        Done and done! The yogurt I had was not sour enough, so added some lime juice instead of extra yogurt.
