Prawns in Garlic butter & Grilled King Fish

These two recipes are very special to me because I made them for my hubby darling on our 7th wedding Anniversary. We decided to have a quiet candle light dinner at home (Yes with our naughty 2 yr old toddler) instead of venturing out as always. These two recipes doesn't take a longer time to cook just about an hours time if the fish is readily available in the fridge. I used frozen prawns and Kind fish (Surmai), you can substitute it with Pomfret
Grilled King fish
3 fillets of king fish (cleaned properly)
10-12 cloves of garlic
1/2 bunch of parsley (you may use coriander leaves also)
2 green chilli's (If you want it spicy use more) 
few drops of olive oil
1 tsp of oregano 
salt to taste
juice of 1 lemon
Zest of 1 lemon
Semolina (Rawa) as requiredMethod
For marinade, add garlic, chilli's, parsley, zest, oregano, few drops olive oil and seasoning to grinder and make paste. add this marinate on the fish fillets. Keep aside for about ½ hr
Prepare the grill for cooking over medium high heat.  Grill fish for 5 minutes on each side or until almost cooked through. Use little semolina (Rawa) while grilling.  Serve immediately.
