Baked Red Sea Bream Fillets with Rice Recipe

Serves/Makes: 2

Ingredients:

  • 2 red sea bream fillets, about 6 ounces each
  • 2 inches piece root ginger, peeled and finely grated
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 small red chili, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons light soy sauce

    For the rice:
  • 4 ounces shiitake mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 bunch salad onions, finely shredded and washed
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 5 ounces sachet Merchant Gourmet Nanjing Black Rice
  • 3 thin slices fresh root ginger
How to cook Baked Red Sea Bream Fillets with Rice:
  • In a medium-sized pan, fry the mushrooms and half of the salad onions in the sesame oil over gentle heat for 2 minutes, or until softened. Empty the sachet of rice and add the sliced ginger and 2 cups boiling water to the pan. Stir well, cover and simmer for 25-30 minutes, or until the rice is tender and all the water has been absorbed. Cover and keep warm.
  • Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 400°F. Using a sharp knife cut 4 diagonal slashes into each fillet. Mix together the ginger, garlic, chilli and soy sauce and spread over the red sea bream fillets, especially into the cuts. Place the fish on a non-stick baking tray, cover loosely with foil and steam in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until the flesh is opaque.
  • To serve, remove the slices of ginger from the rice. Divide the rice between 2 warmed dinner plates and place the baked red sea bream fillets on top. Garnish with the remaining salad onions.
