Learn how to make Amritsari Fish Tikka with our Chef Prateek Dhawan. Amritsari Fish Tikka is one of Punjab's best-known seafood dishes. One of the distinct spices in this fish tikka, that is a popular winter snack in Amritsar, is carom seeds (ajwain). While a lot of discussion surrounds the spices, the hero ingredient remains the fish. As is also the marination technique. The soul of this dish is the marinade. The longer you marinate, the better it is. The marinated fish pieces are skewered with satay sticks and then grilled in a pan till crisp golden. This is a pretty simple 'must try' recipe.
