Step 1Gather the ingredients.
Step 2Cut the cod fillets into 2- to 3-inch chunks.
Step 3In a medium bowl, combine all the marinade ingredients: yogurt, olive oil, garlic, ginger, ground cumin, ground coriander, chili powder, turmeric, and sea salt.
Step 4Place the fish pieces in the bowl and toss them with the marinade to coat well. Cover the bowl and let it marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour. Do not leave the fish out at room temperature.
Step 5Preheat the grill for medium-high heat. Place a large piece of nonstick aluminum foil or heavy duty foil (brushed with oil on top) on the grill grates. Make sure the foil doesn't completely cover the grill to allow for air flow. Pierce a few holes in the foil with a grilling fork to allow for drainage. Remove some of the excess marinade from the fish. Place the fillets spaced apart on the foil. Cook for 10 to 12 minutes, flipping the fish halfway through.
Step 6Remove the fish from the heat and serve topped with red onion slices and cilantro leaves.
