It turned out really good - the dish was very light, healthy and delicious. The lemon added contrast to the fishy/garlicky taste. Best eaten with veggies (steamed asparagus, perhaps?).
What you need:
1 pound red snapper (about 2 fillets)
2 tablespoons garlic, finely chopped
1 1/2 tablespoons ginger, finely chopped
1/3 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 tablespoon finely chopped parsley
salt and pepper, to taste
lemon, for garnish
What to do:
Score the fish. Do this by lightly making diagonal cuts on the surface of the fish (make sure your knife doesn't go through the meat). After scoring, season both sides of the fish with salt and pepper.
In a bowl, combine ginger, garlic, parsley and olive oil. Mix well, then pour on top of the fish.
Place in a steamer and steam for 30 minutes. Transfer to a plate and drizzle with fresh lemon juice before serving.
Tips, Tricks and Tweaks:
1. You can use tilapia, dory, or other white fish.
2. Try sesame oil instead of olive oil for an Asian flair. ;-)
3. Green onions would be a good addition to this dish.
