Baked Fish with Lemon & Tomato Dressing

Hiya!

Sorry for the lack of posting in the last week! I have my last exam tomorrow (hoorah!) which means less time studying, more time cooking – I’m so excited πŸ˜€

Tonight’s dinner is pretty simple and not the most gourmet meal, but it’s another one of those handy meals to have when you’re lacking on time but still want something yummy and nutritious! I served mine with a whoooole heap of veges and half a cup of quinoa and it made a scrumptious meal. The fish I used is just frozen Basa fillets that you can get at coles and woolworths and they’re not the most flavoursome fish so I made up a kind of tomato salsa-ish dressing to add something else to the meal.

Baked Fish with Lemon & Tomato Dressing

Adjust ingredients based on servings (this served one)
Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 frozen Basa fillet (defrosted) [can use any type of fish really though]
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp juice of a lemon
  • Tomato, diced (I used cherry tomatoes because it’s all I had)
  • 1 tbsp Mixed herbs
  • 1/2 tsp ground chilli powder

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Place fish on alfoil (or baking paper) on a baking tray (with sides folded up to prevent the dressing running everywhere).
  2. Stir together tomato, lemon, oil, herbs and chilli to taste.
  3. Pour over the fish and fold the alfoil/paper around the fish to seal it.
  4. Place in the oven and cook for 15 – 20 minutes or until fish is cooked (should be firm but still moist and flaking)
  5. Serve with steamed vegetables & brown rice/quinoa

I’m off to Sydney on Friday night for a week so I won’t be posting until I get back, but I will be creating! My friend Amanda, who I’m spending the week with, is also a clean eater and we’ve already sussed out many recipes to try! So expect lots of yummy and healthy recipes for when I get back!

Have a great week everyone! xo
