  1. 4 to 6 fillet cod fillets
  2. 1 cup plain yogurt
  3. 1/4 cup olive oil
  4. 4 clove garlic , minced
  5. 2 teaspoons fresh grated ginger
  6. 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  7. 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  8. 1 teaspoon  mild Indian chili powder, or cayenne
  9. 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  10. 1 teaspoon sea salt
  11. 1/2 small red onion, cut into thin rings
  12. 1/4 cup cilantro leaves



  1. Gather the ingredients.
  2. Cut the cod fillets into 2- to 3-inch chunks.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine all the marinade ingredients: yogurt, olive oil, garlic, ginger, ground cumin, ground coriander, chili powder, turmeric, and sea salt.
  4. Place the fish pieces in the bowl and toss them with the marinade to coat well. Cover the bowl and let it marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour. Do not leave the fish out at room temperature.
  5. Preheat the grill for medium-high heat. Place a large piece of nonstick aluminum foil or heavy duty foil (brushed with oil on top) on the grill grates. Make sure the foil doesn't completely cover the grill to allow for air flow. Pierce a few holes in the foil with a grilling fork to allow for drainage. Remove some of the excess marinade from the fish. Place the fillets spaced apart on the foil. Cook for 10 to 12 minutes, flipping the fish halfway through.
  6. Remove the fish from the heat and serve topped with red onion slices and cilantro leaves.
