Raita, a traditional Indian condiment consisting of cucumber and yogurt, makes a quick topping for simple sautéed fish fillets.

4 servings | Active Time: 25 minutes | Total Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients

Raita

Fish

Preparation

  1. To prepare raita: Combine cucumber, yogurt, mint, lime juice, garlic, cumin, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a small bowl. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes to allow flavors to blend.
  2. To prepare fish: Combine flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a shallow dish; thoroughly dredge fillets (discard any leftover flour).
  3. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the fish, working in batches if necessary, and cook until lightly browned and just opaque in the center, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Serve each portion of fish with about 1/4 cup raita each.
