Whole Fish (Tilapia) Masala Baked and Anu (myself) and Anush's (My Son) Diwali Group Dance Performance 2011

I wanted to make this fish recipe for a long time, as I had it in a Mexican restaurant but they just fried it without any masala, I know it does not sound very tasty...but I was too hungry that day so liked even the bland one. I sprinkled salt, pepper, chili sauce and lime juice and ate the whole fish myself. Then I decided to make it with lot  of Indian masala. We get fresh cleaned whole fish in an oriental mart, so no lot of work on it. Just got it from the store, make the masala, spread it over the fish, marinated it and baked it with little bit of olive oil. It was awesome and yummy and very tasty that we finish the whole fish.

1 whole Tilapia Fish (Cleaned and washed)
Salt as needed
1 1/2 tsp Chili powder
1 1/2 tsp Black Pepper powder
2 tsp Cumin powder
1 tsp Onion powder
1 tsp Ginger powder
1 tsp Garlic powder
1 tsp Olive Oil

1. Clean the fish and pat it dry, then slit the fish with perpendicular lines to the length of the fish so that it can be well coated with masala.
2. Brush the Olive oil all over the fish and then rub the masala over the fish both sides, making sure that you sprinkle well under the slits and open the head and mouth and add some masala too.
3. Marinate this fish for about 30 mins to 1 hr.

4. Preheat oven to 400F and then place this fish on a baking sheet and bake it for about 20 to25 mins or until the top of the fish with masala is golden brown and make sure it's cooked well. (Note: Make sure you flip the fish once in between).

5. Enjoy this yummy spicy baked whole fish along with some steamed rice and salad.
