Indian Inspired Spiced Fish Duo with Yogurt Dip

I am somehow addicted to buying fish for the last few days, I have stocked my refrigerator with cod, lemon sole, dory, halibut as well as Chinese fish balls.

My assignment for tonight's dinner was to cook at least 2 types of fish and I had chosen lemon sole and dory. They are both white fish with mild flavor which is great for what I had in mind - an a la Indian style spiced fish.

They are quick to prepare and the yogurt dipping is very very refreshing! A delicious and healthier subsitute to tartar or mayonnaise based dippings.

I loved the idea of two different fish serve in a same plate! Got to enjoy the variety of textures and tastes.

This recipe serves 2 person

For the fish

1 medium lemon - thinly sliced

3 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp ground cinnamon
3 tsp ground paprika
2 tbsp plain flour
2 (approx 150g) Dory fish fillets
2 (approx 150g) Lemon sole fillets
2 tbsp olive oil or cooking oil
For the  sauce
1/2 cup low fat yogurt
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice 
Dash of ground cumin 

1)   Place large skillet with olive oil at medium high heat.
2)   Cook lemon until lighly browned on both sides. Remove and set aside.
3)   Combine cumin, cinnamon, paprika and flour in a small bowl. Sprinkle over fish.
4)   Cook fish until cooked and  browned both sides.
5)   Place fish fillet on serving plates. One serving with 2 types of fish.
6)   Mix lemon juice and yogurt in a small sauce plate. Sprinkle with cumin.
7)   Serve with fish with lemon and yogurt dipping.

>> Tip to note : 
- You may substitute the fish fillet with any other white fish fillet.
