  • 4 x 140g tilapia fillets
  • 1 tbsp tandoori paste
  • 1kg sweet potatoes, cut into small chunks
  • 4 carrots, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and chopped
  • 8 tomatoes, chopped
  • small red onion, thinly sliced
  • small bunch coriander, roughly chopped


  1. Coat the tilapia fillets with the tandoori paste and set aside. Put the sweet potatoes, carrots and garlic in a large pan of salted water. Bring to the boil and cook for 10 mins or until tender. Drain well, then allow to steam-dry for a few mins. Add the chilli to the pan and mash everything together with some seasoning. Cover and keep warm.

  2. Heat the grill to high. Grill the tilapia for 8-10 mins or until cooked through. Meanwhile, mix the salad ingredients together and serve alongside the tilapia and mash.
