Grilled fish with smoked bell pepper marination





Healthy can be tasty alright but the same process might just get boring. So while I have cooked 4 different styled poached fish in the past today when the weather is cool and your hands and feet feel dry I wanted something different. Closed my eyes and thought for a while and while the poached fish repulsed me all of a sudden the image of a nicely grilled fish made me look forward to lunch. 




I had eyed this Eastern European condiment recipe ajvar for a long time. While I did not follow the original recipe I did gas roast my bell peppers, onions and garlic , blend them smooth marinated the fish with salt , pepper and the mixture and oh what a lunch ti was. The sweet roasted bell peppers was the perfect lunch for the approaching winter.





 The cucumbers are suddenly fresher than the freshest ones in the market and with so many options healthy can never be boring again. P.S. while my fish grilled I admired the roses my grandmother had planted some 40 years ago. Winter is round the corner indeed.





So its easy , you need

2 small sized Pomfret fish
Salt and pepper as per taste 
Half a red bell pepper
Half an yellow bell pepper
4 cloves of fat garlic 
1 small onion 
Half a tsp black pepper. 
Olive oil  1 tablespoonful 
1 tsp red wine vinegar 




Start by first brushing the fish with oil and applying salt. Leave it to marinate for 15 minutes. In the meantime flame roast the bell peppers, garlic cloves and onion. Scrape off the blackened parts of bell peppers and the skin of garlic and onion and blend with black pepper , olive oil , salt and red wine vinegar. Marinate the fish with this mixture for 2 hours. Grill both sides well and you have a beautiful lunch of fish on a bed of cucumbers.
