Hello everyone. I can’t believe I haven’t written anything in over two weeks now. I have been on a constant “Lazy Mode” these days, which by the way is one of my favorite moods ๐Ÿ˜‰ Who wants to stand in the kitchen when you can get comfy on the couch, read a book, sip some soup and enjoy the lazy winter days. It sounds so exciting as I write it down, I want to put down my laptop and go back on the couch. ๐Ÿ™‚

But before I do that, here is an easy weeknight dinner option for you. It gets ready in less than 30 minutes so you can continue enjoying the lazy winters. I have made this with Tilapia but use your favoriteย kind of fish. It can be served with some steamed vegetables or fried brown rice like I did. And while the fish bakes, you can get the accompaniment ready, which means dinner on the table soon.

Recipe inspired from here

Lets get cooking…

Ingredients:

Tilapia Fillets – 4

Garlic Cloves – 2, finely chopped

Ginger – 1 inch, grated

Soy Sauce – 2 tbsp.

Honey – 4 tbsp.

Vinegar – 1 tbsp.

Sriracha or any hot chili sauce – 1 tsp

Apple Sauce – 2 tbsp., (Optional)

Sesame Oil – 2 tbsp.

Salt and Black pepper – to taste

For garnish – finely chopped cilantro and sesame seeds

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
  2. Season the fish with salt and pepper and leave aside.
  3. Mix the rest of the ingredients, except garnish, and form a sauce to coat the fish. You can also dip the fillets in the sauce and let it refrigerate for 30 minutes if you have the time.
  4. Now take an oven proof dish and place the four fillets in four pieces of foil to make a package. This method really makes a nice and juicy fish as it cooks and steams in its own juices.
  5. Distribute the sauce evenly over all the four fillets and fold each piece of foil to make a packet and then seal the edge of each packet, crimping it tightly.
  6. Bake the fish for 15 – 20 minutes. You know the fish is done when it easily flakes with a fork.
  7. If you like a little caramelized top of the fish, open the packets and broil/grill it for 2 minutes.
  8. Garnish the fish withย some chopped cilantro and sesame seeds. Enjoy this delicious Asian style fish with your choice of veggies and rice.

A few years ago I would have laughed at the prospect of writing a food blog. Expecting someone to guide you on a recipe whose own cooking experience before her marriage has been next to nil is quite unbelievable. A foodie husband and his love for socializing ensured I do get a lot of cooking practice. And when I finally decided to be a SAHM, it gave me an opportunity to enhance my culinary skills. A lot of it was inspired from a number of food groups on Facebook and some very talented people I met there. So thanks to all my family and friends who constantly motivated me to work on a blog, here it is. So come, join me on this delightful journey, where I promise to serve you Love daily, well almost.
