Super easy, really! An inspiration from an Indian dish we enjoyed in Thailand many many years ago. Serve with salad and rice.

I used tilapia. The bottom of my breading stuck to the pan so next time I'll cook on parchment. Very tasty.

This dish is absolutely delicious! I had a hard time finding the garam masala and had to order it online but I'm so glad I did. The cook time was absolutely perfect which of course is incredibly important with fish (I usuually don't get that part right!). I know I will be making this dish for years to come; thanks for posting this winner!

Excellent -- even my non-fish eater loved this fish! I changed the recipe slightly by using catfish (about 1 pound), skipping the garam masala but using the chili powder and using a sprinkling of instant onions and I forgot the oil. Cooked in 350-degree oven for 30 minutes -- perfect timing by the way and served with a tossed salad for a very good and satisfying dinner. Thanks for sharing!
