Steamed Asian Hake (Merluza)

Quick. Easy. No Mess. One Dish. Makes a small / large quantity. Healthy.
Those are the factors that are required for a good weeknight dinner.

My husband made this for us last night, and it hit the spot.
We used frozen fish instead of fresh as the fish counters were shut by the time we got to the store, but it still worked well.

We also made it again this afternoon (read above: quick, easy, no mess, one dish, makes the quantity you need and healthy!) and made it with fresh salmon. It was just as good, if not better! 

Serves 2 
Step 1
Make the sauce:
In a mixing bowl, mix together 3 tbsp sesame oil, 1 tbsp oyster sauce, 1 tsp fish sauce, juice of 1/2 lemon, 3 cloves of thinly sliced garlic, 2-inch piece of ginger, sliced long, 1 long scallion and 5 small whole dried red chillies. 
Marinate 300 gms of Hake (Merluza) with the above sauce.
Preheat oven to 350F (175C)
In a lined baking tray place a large sheet of foil.
Place the fish with all the sauce along with 6–7 green beans and seal the foil shut loosely, creating space between the fish and the foil to allow it to steam.
Bake for 15 –20 minutes.

Serve over brown or white rice. Enjoy!
