Ginger and Lime Fish

Ginger and Lime Fish

This ginger and lime fish is an easy low fat entree recipe that you can prepare in about 20 minutes, and it serves 4 people. You can double the ingredients if you expect more guests.

Fish is one of the foods with the lowest content of fat, and the fat it contains happens to be good Omega-3 fat, which is good for you. Therefore you should eat fish at least once a week or take Omega-3 fat supplements.

Fish is a really nutritious food, being rich in protein, vitamins and minerals which are essential to maintain good health.

You can use any type of thick fillet fish, choose whichever type you prefer. I like to use Cod.

Try to use fresh fish and remember - The fresher the fish, the better the dish.


1/2 kg of thick fish fillet (cod would do)

2 tsp fresh ginger, minced

1 Tbsp soy sauce

2 Tbsp water

1/3 cup of lime juice (fresh)

Spray a baking dish with low fat oil.

Next, mix the ginger and sauce together with the lime juice, and pour the mixture over the fish and add the 2 tablespoons of water.

Marinate for 20 minutes and preheat your over at 180 C (375 F) in the meantime.

Cover the baking dish with foil and bake for 20 minutes, and that's it!

Uncover and sprinkle with ground pepper.

Didn't I tell you it was very easy to prepare!?

This dish goes well with a nice low carb beer... or 2. ;-)
