Sesame & Coconut Fish

I have had such a busy weekend this weekend including eating out at my two favourite restaurants (Honest Burger and The Ivy Market Grill) with my two favourite people  ☺️ and so tonight stayed in and fancied fish or seafood, as I haven’t had Asian food in a while I picked this steamed sesame and coconut fish dish. This is a Burmese recipe and its very delicious and easy, perfect for today’s warm Summer evening as it is light, tasty and reminds me of eating al fresco in Myanmar.

Serves 2
2 fillets of white fish – I used basa but cod or haddock would work well too
1 tsp ginger
1 clove garlic
70ml warm water
40g dessicated coconut
1tbsp toasted sesame seeds
1/2 tsp turmeric
salt and pepper
1tbsp flour
1tbsp lemon juice
1tbsp coriander leaves – chopped

Blitz the ginger, garlic and coconut with the water until a paste. Mix in the sesame seeds, coriander, salt, pepper, flour, lemon juice and turmeric.
Place each fish fillet on a sqaure of foil and cover with the coconut mixture. Wrap the fish up into a parcel so sealed.
Steam above boiling water for 10 minutes.
Serve with veggies and rice.
