Fish in Yogurt Marinade


This Fish in Yogurt Marinade is a fresh and healthy recipe that I personally love. Perch fillets have a firm and flaky white flesh which compliment the tangy, lemon zest and herb marinade just perfectly.

This recipe has quite an enhanced flavor palette that will quickly take you from home cook to chef in just 25 minutes. A great source of protein and vitamin B12 too.

In a shallow baking dish or sealable bag, combine finely grated lemon zest from 1 whole lemon, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, 1 cup of Greek Yogurt, 1 tablespoon of minced garlic, 3 tablespoons of oregano, 1 teaspoon of ground cumin, ¼ teaspoon of ground allspice, ½ teaspoon kosher salt, and ½ teaspoon ground black pepper.

Yogurt and fish normally wouldn't sound good at all together but after this meal I can confirm it totally is worth a try, absolutely mouth drenching!

Never thought you could make fish with yogurt, pretty damn good if I do say so myself.

Mabel Brekken

Didn't bother adding the black pepper instad I used chili flakes to make the fish slightly spicy, mm-mm deliciouso!

Wren Soscia

Delicious fish meal, I added a lot less lemon though since I don't like my fish to be too zesty,

Easily the top fish dinner on this website, it's extremely affordable and simple to make with a great after taste.

Slightly bland but not too bad if you add some more spices or even a drop of hot sauce to it.

Guadalupe Thermitus

Needed to add a bit more cumin and less oregano but other than that the food was wonderful.

Azalea Labhart

Tasty but I liked the fish with lemon cream sauce a lot more, it had a lot of flavor compared to this yogurty fish.
