We have been wanting to do a fish recipe for quite awhile now, but we wanted to do it with fresh fish from one of my Dad's fishing trips. Sadly he hasn't had much luck lately. So we went ahead and bought some from the store. The original recipe we found in a Woman's Day Magazine, you can find it HERE.
The original recipe called for Salmon, we can't really afford it at the moment so we went for one of our favorites in our price range, Flounder.
For this recipe you will need:
1 1/4 lb Flounder or Tilapia
3 tbsp Hoisin sauce
(If you don't have it, or can't find it HERE is a link to a great recipe for it)
1 tbsp Agave Nectar or Honey
1 tbsp and 2 tsp fresh grated Ginger
2 tsp vegetable oil
2 cloves garlic
1 lb baby bok choy
2 large carrots
small bunch green onions (for garnish)
When we started to place our fish into a broil safe cooking dish we noticed there were some bones still in the fish. the bones were in the middle of the fillet so we carefully cut it out.
Next you mix up 1 tbsp ginger, hoisin sauce, agave nectar, and 1 clove garlic together and set aside.
Using half of the sauce mixture coat the fillets and place in your oven set to broil.
Cook 7-9 minutes, fish should flake with a fork when done.
While the fish is cooking chop up your vegetables. We used a peeler on the carrots like our crispy Carrot Fries from a previous post.
Over medium heat add your vegetable oil to heat up and stir in the remainder of your garlic and ginger until it is super fragrant (should only take 30 seconds)
Stir-fry your vegetables until they are to your liking.
Add the remaining sauce to the veggies
Fish should be done by now, because of the sauce the color didn't really change.
It did flake with a fork though!
The finished result!
You can serve this over noodles or rice,
however it is wonderful on it's own if you are cutting out simple carbs.
I really liked this recipe, it was different and sweet.
I think I will add more bok choy next time though.
Rachel thought is was wonderful, but was expecting the fish to absorb more of the sauce's flavor. And would defiantly add more more bok choy next time as well.
This weeks kitty is Sate again!
My wonderful husband planted some cat grass in an old broken toilet for our cats.
The kitties love it, as you can see Sate is going to town on it!
