Sake baked fish is a light and delicious fish recipe that is easy to prepare. All you have to do is combine the ingredients, place them in foil packets and bake them for a few minutes. I like how the vegetables add subtle flavors to the fish, while the marinade gives it some bite.
2 tablespoons sake
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon fresh ginger juice
1 teaspoon salt
650g white fish fillets (dory, flounder, sea bass, cod) cut in 4 equal pieces
4 pieces aluminum foil, cut into squares
1 large carrot peeled and thinly sliced
1 medium onion, peeled and thinly sliced
1 medium bell pepper, seeds removed and sliced
1 stalk leek, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon oil
1 lemon sliced
Preheat the oven at 160C and lightly grease the aluminum foil with oil.
Put the fish in a shallow baking dish. After, combine the sake, ginger juice, soy sauce and salt in a small bowl. Stir until the salt is dissolved. Pour the mixture over the fish and allow it to marinate for 10 minutes. Drain the marinade and reserve it.
Take some carrots, leeks, onions and bell peppers and place them at the center of the foil. Top it with a fish fillet and pour some reserved marinade over it. Bring the ends of the foil together and fold the edges to enclose the fish. Do this for the remaining ingredients.
Transfer the foil packets on a baking sheet and bake them for 15-20 minutes or until the fish easily flakes. You may serve the fish fillets in the foil packets or you may carefully remove them. Discard excess juices if desired. Garnish with lemon slices and serve with vegetables or rice.
