Ginger Fish

Posted by Annita on January 24, 2007

You might’ve guessed by now what this post is for..yes its for JFI-Ginger only.Thanks Rosie for choosing such a lovely theme.Ginger is an essential ingredient in an Indian kitchen,without which many of our authentic deliccacies would have never been born.I was planning to post Kerala’s favorite ginger flavored recipe ‘Pulinji’ for this JFI,but while browsing through last week,this Ginger fish recipe immediately caught my attention,mainly because it was a baked dish.I’m very fond of baked dishes,so thought this would be the best time to try it out and it came out very good.

Ginger Fish

So here goes my entry to JFI-Ginger…


Fish fillets cleaned and cut into serving size pieces- 1/2 kg
(I’ve used king fish here)
Finely chopped Spring onions – 1 sprig
Oil – 2 tbsp

For the sauce :-
Ginger grated – 3 tsp
Garlic flakes – 2
Red Chilly powder – 1 tsp
Lemon juice – 2 tsp
Soy sauce – 2 tsp
Vinegar – 1 tbsp
Sugar – 1 tsp
Salt – 1/4 tsp
Water – 2 tbsp


Grind together all the ingredients for the sauce and make a thin paste of it.Preheat the oven to 350 F.Arrange the fish pieces in a baking dish and keep it aside.Heat oil in a pan and add the sauce paste into it.Simmer it for 5 minutes,and when the sauce starts to get thick pour it over the fish fillets.Sprinkle spring onions over it and bake for 30 mins.Garnish with grated ginger and spring onion greens and serve.

    Hi Annita :)

    The Ginger Fish looks so yummy and delicious, it should be really tasty.

    Will it be as good as kingfish, if I try out with cod or salmon ?

    I want to really try this dish, most probably this weekend.
    Fish is my all time favourite dish:)

    Hey thanks so much.

    Regards can try with any fish of your choice,venu..

    Annita, I tried this with Tuna fillets. It was slightly spicy for my family but it tasted real good. King-fish and mackerel would definitely taste even more good, I guess. Thanks again for this recipe, Annita.

    Was this too much spicy for u??oooh..i’m sorry abt it dear..I forgot to mention that my family is always on the spicy side..

    I used tuna steak also and it was fabulous. My wife told me not to lose the recipe :-)

    Will be trying with other fish types. ‘THANK YOU’ for a simple fabulously tasting dish

  17. This really is such a fantastic resource that youre providing and you give it absent for free. I love seeing web sites that comprehend the worth of offering a top quality resource free of charge. It?s the outdated what goes about comes around routine.

  18. Oh my goodness! an incredible article dude. Thanks However I am experiencing problem with ur rss . Don’t know why Unable to subscribe to it. Is there anyone getting similar rss downside? Anyone who is aware of kindly respond. Thnkx

  19. It looks very simple and colorful. You have mentioned “Preheat the oven to 350 F” but now a days all microwave ovens are coming different. Can you tell us in terms of watts. When i tried to make “grilled fish” it was showing me to select the temperature like 750w, 250w. I am little bit confused about it.
