Fish Tandoori

1 large fish, whole, about 2 pounds
oil for brushing the fish
1 ½ tablespoon lime juice
salt to taste
1 cup whipped yoghurt (curd)
1 teaspoon garlic paste
1 teaspoon ginger paste
1 teaspoon green chili paste
1 teaspoon coriander powder
1 teaspoon tomato sauce
1 teaspoon red chili powder
½ teaspoon cumin powder
1 teaspoon tandoori masala powder

After cleaning the fish, make slanting gashes on the fish on each side. Do this in such a way that the fish remains whole. Combine all ingredients except for fish and oil. This is the marinade. Place the fish in a bowl and marinate for about 4 hours. Prepare a baking dish and brush the bottom of the dish with a little oil. Carefully place the fish in the center of the dish and brush with some oil on top. Pour any remaining marinade into the dish and bake in a moderate oven at 375°F till the fish is done and becomes golden brown at the top (10-20 min). Serve garnished with coriander leaves and lemon wedges.
