Thai Fish (Baked)

Thai Fish (Baked)

This dish is a fantastically healthy way to enjoy really succulent and flavorsome fish and veg. Fresh herbs and spices are fantastic for the body, and the lack of heavy carbohydrates will not cause the need for an afternoon nap!

Ingredient list:

  • Whole sea bass
  • Soy sauce
  • Fish sauce
  • Fresh ginger slices (as thin as possible)
  • Fresh garlic slices (as thin as possible)
  • Fresh chilli slices (as thin as possible)
  • Coconut oil/olive oil
  • Sesame oil
  • Coriander
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 5 Spice mix
  • Broccoli, carrots and parsnips for accompanying grilled vegetables

Seasoning for the Thai Fish

After slicing some ginger and garlic, smother the inside of the fish together with coconut oil.

Coconut oil is a fantastic replacement to normal olive oil. It will encourage fat loss, increase satiety and help control your insulin. All in all very healthy. I was even told that you could live off nothing but coconuts forever (I’m not sure how feasible that actually is – although it might be fun trying!). Follow my very good friend who talks a lot about the strength of coconut oil on Facebook:

Before the seasoning



Then cover the rest of the fish with the sesame oil, coconut oil, a dash of soy sauce and any leftover ginger and garlic.

Add chopped coriander, chopped chillis, 5 spice and chilli flakes (if you want it really spicy).

Finish off with the squeeze of a lime and leave the lime in there.

Seasoned Thai FishWrap up in the foil and bake at 150 degrees C for approximately 30-40 minutes. The juice should keep the fish really tender so it is incredibly easy and juicy to cut.

Serve with roasted vegetables (I used carrots and parsnips) dashed with coconut oil and grilled in the over next to the fish for approximately 20 minutes.

Bon appetite!
