Sometimes when we prepare a really yummy dish it is difficult to leave enough to photograph for our Internet WordPress blog and this is one of those times. What you see is the remains of two nice Basa fillets that we had for our Friday lunch. This dish turned out so delicious that..fortunately, somehow, I managed to get some control of my appetite to snap this picture.
The recipe is very simple and already provided on the heavy plastic bag containing the frozen Basa fillets, and you can simply follow that. I however, have modified/tweeked the recipe a wee bit because I didn’t have all the called for components for the provided recipe and voila..
2 frozen Basa fillets
1 green pepper chopped up (or skip as per original recipe)
1 Tbsp Olive oil
1 can stewed spiced tomatoes (or 2 spiced up fresh tomatoes as per original recipe)
1 medium onion chopped (or 2 green shallots sliced up)
Basil (or Thyme as per original recipe)
Paprika (or skip as per original recipe)
Prepare onions or shallots, tomatoes, and green peppers cutting the first into small pieces, the tomatoes thinly, and the peppers into thicker spices. Coat the bottom of a glass or ceramic baking pan with the Olive oil. Place layer of onions followed by a layer of tomatoes on the oiled pan bottom then place the fish fillets on top. Spice the fillets afterwards, add the remaining onion and tomato on top of the fish fillets. Preheat oven to 350 F degrees. Place baking pan with fish into oven and bake for about 30 minutes. Remove from oven, cool a bit and serve with cooked brown rice and perhaps some steamed asparagus..mmm!
