Kerala Style Baked Fish

Here is the recipe for a simple Kerala Style Baked Fish. I bake fish these days in my Convection Oven so that I can avoid frying it in oil. You can bake any fish like Tilapia, Salmon, Mahi Mahi and so on.

Kerala Style Baked Fish


  1. Fish Fillets – 2 medium (I used Tilapia Fillets)
  2. Turmeric Powder – 1/4 tsp
  3. Paprika/Kashmiri Chilly Powder – 2 tsp (Alter according to your spice tolerance)
  4. Black Pepper Powder – 1/2 tsp
  5. Fish Masala Powder – 1 tbsp (Optional) – I used Eastern Fish Masala Powder
  6. Ginger Powder – 1/2 tsp
  7. Garlic Powder – 1/2 tsp
  8. Lemon Juice – 1 tbsp
  9. Salt – to taste

Preparation Method

  1. Make a marinade using the above ingredients and apply it on the fish fillets. Refrigerate it for atleast one  hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degree F (200 degree Celsius). Line a baking pan with Aluminum Foil and spray some cooking oil.
  3. Place the fish fillets on the pan and bake uncovered for around 15 minutes. Turn the fillets carefully and bake for another10-20 minutes depending on how crisp you want your fish to be.
  4. Be careful not to bake it for too long or else it will become dry.


  • Make sure the fish fillets are not thin or else they will end up breaking or getting dried.
  • You can also use 1 tbsp of Fresh Ginger Garlic Paste instead of Ginger & Garlic powders.
