    Looking good Tony.

    Ever tried pan frying a pizza and finishing it off under the grill?

    No, I saw yours, they looked really good. Will give it a go when things are a little less hectic round here.

    Justers, the fish looks great! Dunno how it didn't taste like fish, though... When you get through to the flesh, next to the bone, it should defo taste of fish. Where did you buy the bream from - fishmonger or supermarket?

    Anyway, glad you loved the marinade and enjoyed the dish overall. It is good

    The marinade is so strong you can't taste the fish. That's the point. Fish itself was excellent quality from Waitrose.

    I also added Piri Piri sauce to the marinade and the rice was quite hot.

    If you want to concentrate on the fish, don't use this recipe.

    Fair enough, most important thing is you enjoyed it. I'd disagree with your last sentence though, as once I got through the top layer, where the marinade was, the succulent white pearlescent fish, defo tasted of fish (in my case, sea bass)...

    Maybe the Piri-Piri sauce tipped things over the edge? Anyway, glad it was a success

    If you follow the recipe the inside of the fish is full of garlic and ginger. It permeates inside of the fish.

    It was grilled, Marco. If you barbie it it will be very different.

    I find the same with most fish curries. A mouth full of spices distracts from the fish flavour. It's undeniable in my opinion.

    It's still fundamentally fish, though. It's not like it's changed into beef.

    The Piri was just a sub for chilli powder. Better.

    Maybe it's the BBQ factor, then? Mine went straight onto hot charcoals, in one of these: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Landmann-...QAAOSwepJXYWGv

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not disputing that you couldn't taste much fish [you taste what you taste, mate], just that that's not been my experience when I've had a fish curry, or any fish cooked in Indian spices. The marinade only overpowers the fish if it's too strong, or the fish has been frozen, thus its flavour diluted. Otherwise, the flavour of the fish still comes through, along with the marinade

    Anyway, not to worry

    The fish holder is a great idea. Not having one is another reason I didn't barbie it.

    Curries are notorious for disguising even the meat (as opposed to fish) being used. Hence the proliferation of pigeon curries a while back... and possibly the use of the term 'meat' on many curry house menus. Really puts me off when I see that.

    “Nothing discloses real character like the use of power. It is easy for the weak to be gentle. Most people can bear adversity. But if you wish to know what a man really is, give him power. This is the supreme test. It is the glory of Lincoln that, having almost absolute power, he never abused it, except on the side of mercy.”

    “You see these dictators on their pedestals, surrounded by the bayonets of their soldiers and the truncheons of their police ... yet in their hearts there is unspoken fear. They are afraid of words and thoughts: words spoken abroad, thoughts stirring at home -- all the more powerful because forbidden -- terrify them. A little mouse of thought appears in the room, and even the mightiest potentates are thrown into panic.”

    Then I saw it. I saw a mum who would die for her son. A man who would kill for his wife. A boy, angry and alone. Laid out in front of him, the bad path. I saw it. And the path was a circle. Round and round. So I changed it.
