I used a beautiful amberjack fillet that was about an inch 1/4" thick. I followed other reviewer's advice and added some coarsely ground sea salt and black pepper to the fish and the veggies. I used a mix of red and yellow peppers, and they were just beautiful against the vibrant green of the asparagus. I cut my basil into thin strips and tucked them into the small cuts instead of leaving the basil leaf whole. The ginger, garlic and basil made for a very flavorful piece of fish! Everything was done at the same time and made for a wonderfully healthy dinner last night! Thanks for sharing! Made for PRMR tag game.
this was great -- made as directed, except I skipped the peppers. Used with sliced tomatoes for a very low cal/low fat and filling dinner. Thanks for sharing!
Oh, I loved this! The fish was cooked just perfectly at 7 minutes--I usually accidentally overcook fish so this was a delight. I agree that it needed some salt...I even sprinkled coarse kosher salt over it before cooking and still sprinkled more on at the table. I used a chinese bamboo steamer and it worked great! I'm sure it would be great with all kinds of vegetables. Thanks for posting :). Made for PRMR Spring 2008.
This is awesome! The asparagus was crisp-tender and the fish was well seasoned. I used Tilapia fillets and cooked this dish in my rice cooker/steamer. The timing was right on target. The fish was served on top of some leftover Pecan Rice which added the finishing touch. Something I will make again for sure.
This is delicious! I used tilapia, and the mild flavor really complemented the ginger and garlic. I had to use a fresh basil paste instead of leaves, but my ginger and garlic were fresh. After scoring the fish, I simpley rubbed the basil, garlic, and ginger on together. The timing was perfect - 7 minutes spot on for everything. The asparagus was just crisp-tender, and the fish flaked easily but wasn't dry. We did need salt, as mentioned by another poster. I love how fast and easy this healthy dish is!!
My husband and I enjoyed this, but we found it a little bland. Next time, I will sprinkle a bit of salt on the asparagus and maybe dot it with some Smart Balance or other margarine that has no trans fats. The fish, though, was excellent! We loved the fresh ginger, garlic, and basil flavors.
FANTASTIC!!!! So good and easy and quick. I did use prepared garlic and pureed ginger from a jar as I never use up all of the fresh when I buy it. Thanks for the recipe.
