Tandoori fish tikka is a famous non-vegetarian snack and made in Indian style on BBQ or grill. The fish doesn't lose the tender taste from inside yet tastes crispy on the outside. The key is to marinate the fish well.

Wondering how to make it? This easy snack can be made on grilling it in hot tandoor or oven by gently putting the fish tikkas on thin skewers. The heat will gradually cook the fish and it won’t take much time to be ready.

Serve it with mint chutney for exceptional taste along with lemony salad.
