Fish in Capsicum Sauce

I have always tried my hand on chicken and mutton, but this time I wanted to do something new with fish. As my husband is not very fond of fish , I always try to make the fish very spicy one, so that he eats it. But in this recipe I concentrated more on a sweet and sour taste and also a little red color that makes the dish look very yummy and hot!
Note down the list of ingredients for this recipe :

Ingredients :

1. Fish slices- 4
2. Lemon juice- 2 tbs
3. Salt to taste
4. Seasoning used for pizza- 1/2 tsp
5. Red capsicum- 1 large
6. Tomato- 1
7. Onion- 1 small
8. Garlic cloves (finely chopped)- 5
9. Tomato puree- 2 tbs
10. Vinegar- 1 tbs
11. Black pepper powder- 1 tsp
12. Milk- 1/4 cup
13. Cherry tomato- 5 to 6
14. Sweet corn- 1/4 cup
15. Baby corn- 1/4 cup
16. Butter- 1/2 tsp
17. Parsley (chopped)-1 tsp
18. Olive oil

Procedure :

First sprinkle a little salt and olive oil on the red capsicum and microwave it for 5 minutes. Then turn the capsicum and microwave for another 5 to 6 minutes on high. Take the capsicum out and cover it properly with a film so that it remains air tight. This will help you to peel the skin of the capsicum without much problem. If you do not have microwave then do it over flame normally as we do for Brinjal bharta . You must be thinking why have I microwaved the capsicum....simply to get a nice roasted aroma out of it.

After 15 minutes peel the skin of the capsicum. Add 1 tsp oil in a pan and add the chopped tomato (peel the skin before chopping) , onion , garlic , vinegar , pepper and salt. Cook for few minutes and then add the tomato puree and the peeled capsicum to it. Mash it properly. Add the milk and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes. At the end add butter to it and turn of the heat. Tomato will add its sweetness and the capsicum a little spice to this wonderful sauce.

After this blend this sauce in mixer so that you get a smooth paste. Keep the sauce aside.

Marinate the fish slices with lemon juice , a little salt and seasoning. Keep the fishes in refrigerator for 30 minutes. Lemon juice helps the fish to be tender so that it does not take too much time to be cooked.

After half an hour take the fishes out and heat oil in a flat surfaced pan and add the fishes one by one. Pour the capsicum sauce on the fish and cook each side for 3 to 4 minutes. Remember that it is very important not to over cook the fish  as it will take away the taste of the fish. Finally remove the fish and saute the cherry tomatoes , corns , parsley in the same sauce and add a little pepper to it. And serve it with the fish.
