Oven baked Barramundi: Asian Seabass



After a few weeks of doing my groceries shopping at the local wet market as well as the Asian groceries shops, I discovered some of the ingredients which we (Asian) usually need is selling at a very expensive price here. For instance, ginger, a common ingredient which is a must in my kitchen is selling at $18/kg at a farm market and the price is $20~$24/kg at some Asian groceries shop!!

With this expensive ginger, I better put every inch of it into good use! This round I try to oven baked barramundi or Asian called it seabass.

Place the tofu, slice tomatoes, and fish into the baking tray, cover it with slice ginger and spring onion from my garden. Add 3 tbsp of light soy source, 1 tbsp of sesame oil and 100ml of water. Cover the tray with aluminium foil and place into oven at 220C for 25 mins.

The meat of the fish will come out soft and silky like steamed fish, we golloped the fish once it it out from the oven...sorry forgot to take the photo of the cooked fish :)

  1. The bake fish looks delish. You are right, the ginger here is so expensive 1 kg 49.90. I save every single small piece for later use every time.
