How to make Fish Iranian
Wash the fish fillets under running water and pat dry with a kitchen towel. Handle them with care as they are quite delicate and might break. You must ensure that the fillets are cut in small squares.
Now add salt, thymol seeds and black pepper and mix well. Keep in the refrigerator for half an hour.
Meanwhile, finely grate the cheese cubes. You can mix two to three teaspoon milk in it and rub well so that the cheese becomes almost like a paste. Alternately, you can use creamy cheese or cheese spreads that are easily available in the market.
Now, take out the fish from the refrigerator and add the cheese and rub well. You can gently fork the fish so that the marination penetrates deep. Refrigerate for another 5-6 hours.
Take the fish out and allow it to come down to normal temperature. Brush the fish with oil on all sides. Grease a baking tray and grill the fish on high for 10 minutes. Garnish with onion rings, coriander, mint or any other garnishing of your choice.
