Indian Grouper Tikka Recipe

ST. PETE FOODIES APPROVED SPONSOR:

The word tikka refers to small pieces of spicy pungent meat typically cooked in a tandoor (outdoor clay) oven.  The dish likely originated from northern India (Punjab) or Pakistan.

My fishmonger version of this dish is a pescatarian delight with highly spiced grouper in a skillet, a tangy pear chutney, topped with zesty red cabbage slaw, and an added Greek Twist - cool tzatziki-flavored raita in a gyro-style warm naan bread wrap.

This meal is a flavorful and unique blend of savory goodness that, I can assure you, has never been created before. Apane Bhojan Ka Aanand Len ("Enjoy your meal," in Hindi)!
