The Perfect Fish for Lazy Cooks

I know I haven’t blogged in a long,  long time.  This is due to many reasons,  some of which include the following:
1)Holiday withdrawal symptoms
2)Heat makes me slack
3)I haven’t procrastinated like this since my Famous Five days.

But, 
As it so happens,  I’ve gone on a crazy cooking spree (which is kind of inspired and fueled by my ceaseless binge-viewing of Hannibal episodes.
Really.  Guys.
If you’re a foodie and take joy in not only the existence of food but the way it can be made into an entire art form on its own,  you want to watch this show).

So,  as I was saying,  I prepared this fish yesterday and it was quite possibly,  in the simplest terms, 
The easiest and least time consuming thing to make.
AND it tastes yummy.
No effort and all the benefits,  that’s what we love to hear, right? 
So all you couch potatoes and sloth enthusiasts,  take a shot at this. 

Baja-style grilled fish
(Use a soft, flavourful fish with flaky skin like red snapper or baangda)
Ingredients:
1 tsp ground cumin (jeera)
1 tsp chilli powder
1 tbsp oregano
2 tsp (coarse) salt
4 tbsp Olive oil
1/4 cup chopped coriander

I used 5 pieces of fish.

Directions:
Mix the spices and salt.  Stir In the Olive oil and coriander. 
With a knife,  make shallow slashes in the fish,  1 1/2 inches apart.
Rub both sides with spice mixture and refrigerate for 2-4 hours whilst you avidly watch Gotham or browse Reddit or talk to your shadow or whatever.

Preheat oven to 240 • C, to the top element (grill option).
Grease your foil or pan and put the fish in to grill for 15-18 minutes. 
Turn them over after half the time is done,  so it gets cooked on both sides.

Take it out and devour and get fat.
Oh,  wait,  you won’t BECAUSE IT’S ACTUALLY QUITE HEALTHY BUT TASTES GREAT! 

Until next time.
