Back in KL, Dory fish would be the usual choice if we wanted to make a certain dish that requires white fish. But over here in HCMC, I use Basa fish, a local river fish which is similar to Dory. I usually pan fry the fish but this time around I've decided to try baking it.
Below are the ingredients that you need to make this very simple dish:
2 Basa or other white fish fillets
2 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1/3 teaspoon crushed black pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
And now for the step-by-step on how to get this simple dish done.
Preheat the oven to 200ºC / 390ºF
Marinate the fish fillets with a little lemon juice and let it sit for 5 minutes
Place the marinated fish in a baking dish coated with olive oil and generously spread the combined mayonnaise paste over the fish. Bake at 200ºC / 390ºF for 20 minutes or until fish flakes when tested with a fork
As for the roasted carrots its pretty simple. Just slice a carrot into sticks or it would be even easier if you can find baby carrots. Just drizzle them in olive oil and sprinkle on some black pepper. That's all!
Now isn't that simple? Anyone can make this dish. It only takes about 20 minutes to prepare and less than an hour for it to be cooked. I hope this post would inspire some of you working peeps out there to cook your own dinner instead of spending money on unhealthy food.
