I very much enjoyed this recipe, this is a keeper for me. Best cod i have ever had. I could not find ginger paste at any of my local stores so i substituted ground ginger instead, but it still was excellent. One note, the recipe as written is very spicy. I used less than half of the cayenne pepper called for and it was still very spicy. I enjoyed it, but next time i will use even less cayenne pepper for my families sake.

I am so glad I found this recipe. As the editor's note suggested I used a jar of ready made masala I already had (you can find it in almost any grocery store.) I always have it on hand and use it for a quick super w/chicken. I never knew how amazing it would be w/ fish! I only used a 1/2 the jar to marinade the fish and followed your baking instructions! Best Cod I've ever hand! And definatly not boring! Served w/ basmati rice, it was perfect!

Oustanding. Like another reviewer, I couldn't find ginger paste. Instead, I made a paste using crushed ginger and ground garam masala powder. Very flavorful and tasty.
