Spicy Fish Kebabs with Ginger-Lime Dressing

Makes 2 serves, [prep time 10mins (plus 4hour marinating time], [cook time 20mins]



(remember to save a little marinade for the dressing]

  • 500g white fish fillets, chopped into 1inch cubes
  • 2 tbsp. fresh coriander, chopped
  • 1 inch knob ginger, finely grated
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Pinch of chilli flakes
  • Juice and zest of 1 lime
  • 1 tbsp. roasted sesame oil
  • Salt and pepper


  • Leftover marinade from above
  • 1 tbsp. tahini
  • 1 tsp. fish sauce (optional)
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • Water (if needed for a thinner consistency)


Add all of the marinade ingredients to a bowl and mix well to incorporate.

Marinate up to 4 hours in the fridge. Soak skewers for 30 minutes in water to prevent them from burning whilst cooking the skewers. Cook the skewers on a hot grill plate or pan for approximately 3 minutes per side.

Meanwhile pour the leftover marinade in a pan on medium heat.

Add the tahini, fish sauce, lime juice. And water (if needed).

Whisk thoroughly over the heat until well combined & simmer.

Remove from heat and pour over fish kebabs just before serving.

    Hi there,
    Just wondering if you can suggest anything that can replace the corriander? This looks delish!
