I planned to fry this fish but somebody suggested not to cook it in oil for health reasons, so I decided to cook it this way, purely from my imagination, but I was nervous because I do not know if the person whom I will be serving this fish will like it or not, because he is a very good cook, but after eating, he appreciated the taste and said it was yummy! :D.
1 whole fish
1 1/2 tablespoon ginger juice (shred the ginger then extract the juice)
1 tablespoon lime juice
salt and pepper to taste
4 stalks spring onion
1/2 cup water
1. Clean the fish properly and put slits in the middle so that it can absorb the flavor.
2. Put in a cooking pan, sprinkle with the ginger and lime juices on both sides, then put the onion and the white parts of the spring onion, salt and pepper then cook over medium heat allow to simmer until the fish produces its own juice. Then cook in a low heat for 15 minutes or more, allowing all the flavors of the spices to infuse with the fish. Add the water and simmer for 5 minutes.
3. When it is done add the spring onion and some green leafy vegetables for garnishing.
4. Serve it hot.
