{Fishy Dinner} Chinese Baked Fish Fillet And Baked Cheesy Salmon With Wasabi

Festive season is a great time to feast together with family and friends plus a bit of catch up and updates on each others progress. This Christmas season other than festive bakes I also have some quick dishes which you might be interested with.

In this post I am sharing two different "fish" dishes which you could cater for everyone in the family such as Chinese Baked Fish Fillet with oyster sauce and Baked Cheesy Salmon using Japanese mayonnaise and wasabi.


CHINESE BAKED FISH FILLET


For something more Asian taste, this Chinese Baked Fish Fillet would be something easy that you could prepare and get ready in less than 30 minutes for an evening dinner to impress your guests. For the fillet you can use any firm white fish such as cod, haddock, or grouper which work well on this recipe.


(Serves: 1 | Preparation: 5 minutes | Cooking: 15 - 20 minutes)

Ingredients:
  • 1 Piece Grouper Fish Fillet (200g), skin intact
  • 1/2 Tablespoon Oyster Sauce
  • 1 Teaspoon Chinese Cooking Wine
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Sugar
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Sesame Oil
  • 2 Slices Ginger, thinly sliced
  • 1 Stalk of Spring Onion, cut into sections
  • 1 Red Chilli(optional), sliced
  • Served with Steamed Rice and Asian Greens

Method:-
1. Preheat oven to 200 °C (degree Celsius). Arrange spring onion and some julienne ginger on a disposal baking tray and top with fish fillet.

2. Combine oyster sauce, cooking wine, sugar and sesame oil in a bowl and mix well.

3. Spoon sauce mixture over fish fillet, top with remaining ginger and chilli, cover with foil and bake for 15 - 20 minutes or until fish is just cooked through.

4. Sprinkle some extra chopped spring onion and serve hot with steamed rice and Asian green.

Note:
~ Stir-fry baby bok choy and fresh shiitake mushrooms with some garlic and ginger then lightly season it with salt.



BAKED CHEESY SALMON WITH WASABI


Whereas for a western treat, you might wish to consider this Baked Cheesy Salmon with Wasabi. For me, I am a salmon lover and I love to eat it either raw, grilled or baked. And my favourite way of cooking salmon is to top it with lots of shredded cheese and Japanese mayonnaise because after baking it would have a tasty cheesy crust on top plus a moist and juicy fillet below.


(Serves: 1  | Preparation: 5 minutes   | Cooking: 15 - 20 minutes)

Ingredients:
  • 1 Salmon Fillet (200g), bones removed
  • 2 Tablespoons Japanese Mayonnaise
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Wasabi Paste
  • Rind of 1 Lemon
  • 1/4 Cup of Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
  • Some Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • Serve with French Beans and Cherry Tomato

Method:-
1. Preheat oven to 200 °C (degree Celsius). Arrange salmon on a disposal baking tray, top with generous amount of mayonnaise mixture (combine Japanese mayonnaise, wasabi and lemon rind till well-mixed).

2. Evenly top it with shredded mozzarella cheese and sprinkle some freshly ground black pepper on it.

3. Bake prepared salmon in an preheated oven for 15 - 20 minutes or till salmon is cooked to your preference.

4. Serve hot with some french bean, cherry tomato and steamed rice.


With dishes like this you can play around with the ingredients and side dishes to cater for everyone's preference and the best thing is you can bake these two dishes together in the oven but just keep an easy on the salmon as you don't wish to over baked it. And as for the sides, you could add in some Cream Soup (recipes) or Salad (recipes) to make it a complete meal too.

  1. After all the holiday feasting, I could do with some healthy fish recipes. They both look delicious, and love the salmon especially (because of the mayo and wasabi!). Hope you had a great Christmas, and Happy New Year!

  2. I've been really happy being connected with IG Ellena! I get to see more pictures and your life through IG. :) I really like this special shape/size of aluminum foil container. It is a perfect size for fish! Looks really delicious...BUT I cannot eat the mayo wasabi combo because I don't eat wasabi... I know, I am not a real Japanese. ;)
