I love fish, but my family doesn't necessarily feel the same. So, in order to eat fish as often as I would like to I am challenged with the task of choosing meaty varieties and making sure that it is flavourful. In other words, I need to get fish to not taste like fish! The ginger, garlic and shallot in the food processor gives this marinade a thicker consistency, so I was able to put a nice thick layer on top of the fish and finish it off with another dose. It was a hit!
2 cod fillets (or fish of your choice)
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons Sriracha sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 shallot, peeled
1/2 lemon, juiced
1" fresh ginger
1 clove garlic
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Pat fish fillets drive and place them in a small casserole dish. Set aside.
Put all remaining ingredients into a food processor and mix until blended.
Pour into a small sauce pan and heat on low for 10 minutes.
Pour 1 tablespoon of sauce over each fish fillet. Place casserole dish into the oven and bake fish for about 10 minutes.
Leave remaining sauce on low heat. When fish is cooked add more sauce when serving.
Alternately, you can marinate your fish fillets for one hour before cooking.
