This fish was easy to prepare and absolutely delicious. Tonight we selected Turbot which we have never had before. It is similar to Flounder, a fish without scales. This is not the last time we will buy Turbot. Along side, I sauteed a sliced onion, sliced peppers and a fennel bulb with garlic. I have always loved the slight licorice flavor of fennel. It is a must try. I sauteed them in olive oil just a little, leaving them with quite a bit of crunch.
This recipe for the fish actually was out of The South Beach Diet cookbook. I doubt it will disappoint.
Fish in Scallion and Ginger Sauce
1/3 cup dry sherry or vermouth
3 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
1 teaspoon finely chopped garlic
About 1 pound of fish fillets (orange roughy, cod, sole or flounder)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Mix the sherry or vermouth, soy sauce, sesame oil, onion, ginger and garlic in a small bowl.
Place the fish fillets in an ovenproof casserole dish. Drizzle the marinade over the fish and bake for 12 minutes or until the fish flakes easily.
Yes, that is all there is to it. It will make you a fish lover all over again.
