Fish on the menu

Posted on: February 10th, 2009 by admin No Comments


Media of all sorts are always telling us to eat more fish, but a lot of people still don’t like to make fish at home. Truthfully- it’s easier than you think. It’s really fast, tasty, healthy and cheap, what more could you want? This recipe is from Beans, who uses tilapia, but I know that that fish is unheard of down under, so I have included some alternatives.

Soy Poached White Fish

Total time: 15 minutes

Difficulty: Easy

  • 2 – 3 fillets of tilapia (or any white fish, Perch, Ling, Barramundi, etc)
  • 1/4 c soy sauce
  • 3/4 c water
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 Tbsp chopped fresh ginger
  • 4 chopped spring onions (greens included, save a few for garnish)

(Start cooking your rice first)

Finely chop the ginger and garlic.

In a frying pan add the water, soy, and sugar and simmer on medium heat until the sugar has melted. Then place the fish in the pan and then add the ginger garlic and spring onions on top. Turn the heat down put a lid on the saucepan. Poach for about 3 minutes (depending on the thickness of the fillets) and serve with white rice.

Obviously there’s lots of good reasons to eat fish, health wise we have all heard about those omega 3′s etc. What that really means is the health benefits of eating fish are truly rewarding, especially for heart health, so if you can fit in 2 serves a week, you’ll be laughing.
