1 cup Nonfat or low-fat yogurt
1 tbl Ground coriander
1/2 tbl Ground cardamom
1 tsp Freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp Salt
3 tbl Fresh lemon juice
6 x 5- to 6-ounce fillets of a firm whitefish, such as cod, halibut, flounder, sea bass, or swordfish
2 tbl Chopped dill (optional) for garnish
* (... Grilled fish in a simple yogurt marinade that makes an enormous difference in moisture and flavor, with the easily obtained but slightly exotic spices cardamom and coriander, common in Turkey.CORBY)
* As the Turks, Greeks, and Indians know, yogurt makes a great marinade for fish or chicken. It tenderizes as it seasons, and provides a tart balance for the sweet spices. This is an ideal dish for a busy day when you have a great desire for flavor but little time to cook.
* Combine all of the ingredients and marinate the fish fillets for 3 to 6 hours.
* Preheat the broiler or make a charcoal fire. Wipe off excess marinade, brush the fish lightly with oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
* Broil or grill for about 4 minutes per side.
* Garnish with chopped dill, if desired, and serve with a lemon wedge.
* You may also cook the fish on a lightly oiled baking sheet in a 400 degree oven for about 12 minutes, or until done.
