Italian cooking: Simple grilled fish
July 23, 2008

Fish is a delicious, healthy way to bring protein into your diet -- it's light on the system and low on fat.

Fish made into heavy gravy dishes reduces the health benefits of fish, not to mention the taste. So if you're looking for a recipe that's not only simple but also highlights the flavour of fish, instead of drowning it out, try your hand at this one.  

In our continuing series of recipes taken from Italian Khana, an Italian cookbook for the Indian kitchen, Ritu Dalmia, celebrated chef and owner of Diva, one of Delhi's finest Italian restaurants, reveals her best tips and shows you how to cook an authentic Italian dish in 30 minutes or less.

Today's Recipe: Pesce alla Griglia (Simple grilled fish)

I am yet to meet an Italian who does not eat fish. Italians do their fish very well, cooking it simply rather than drowning it with sauces and seasonings. During festive times like Christmas, it is fish and not meat that takes precedence on the table. This recipe comes from a girl I knew called Elena. She used to live in Genoa, working two jobs, yet she always found a few minutes to grill fish and serve it to me with a big salad.
