A classic recipe from the Middle East, which, I have lightened up for a low fat and low calorie meal. The nutty flavoured sesame seed sauce (tahini paste) is mixed with fat free yoghurt, lemon juice, lemon zest and parsley for a flavoursome creamy sauce that adds moisture to grilled fish fillets.



  • 4 fish fillets, weighing about 125g each (such as hake, coley, cod, haddock or halibut)
  • salt and black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons tahini paste
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • grated zest of 1 lemon
  • 3 tablespoons 0% fat Greek style yoghurt (or low-fat yoghurt)
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 4 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • lemon slices to garnish
  • fresh parsley to garnish
