Baked Basa Fillet

This was something I made when I only had 20 minutes to prepare my dinner, came up with this Asian inspired steamed baked Basa parcel, very simple to make and totally delicious.

Baked Basa Fillet (24)
• Basa Fillet (or any fish)
• Chilli pepper
• Ginger
• Garlic
• 2 Tbs soy sauce
• 1 Tbs vinegar
• 2 Tbs olive oil
• Spring onions
• Bok choy (or any green veggie you prefer)
• Mushroom (optional)
• Aluminium foil or parchment paper 

  Pre-heat the oven to 400°F. Finely chop the ginger, chilli and garlic then combine in to a bowl to make the base of our marinate and then add soy sauce, vinegar and oil and give it a good mix. Essentially this is our marinate for the fillet.

Chop the spring onions and bok choy, now spread the sheets on the table and place the vegetables, then lay the fillet on top and finally spoon the marinate all over the fillet. Now all you need to do is wrap the parcel, fold all the corners, so its tightly closed and no steam or marinate will escape.

Place on a baking tray and cook in the oven for about 10-15 minutes(depending on the size of the fillet) until the parcel puffs up and the fish is perfectly cooked.

Once cooked, place the bag on a serving plate and gently pierce to release the steam. Serve with some rice noodles for a really light and healthy dinner!

* Here I haven’t gave precise measurements, as I want to you have fun with this recipe and add as much or as little ingredients you like and feel free to use any other vegetables.
