    dale!'s Note:

    This looks so wonderful! I haven't made this yet but will soon, my mouth is watering already! I would serve this on a bed of coconut or lemon rice with an Asian salad and fresh steamed bok choy.

    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to a hot 220 degree C.
    2. 2
      Make 4 deep slits diagonally across both sides of the fish.
    3. 3
      Place a large sheet of foil, with sides overlapping, in a large shallow baking dish.
    4. 4
      The dish needs to be large enough to hold the fish.
    5. 5
      Spray the foil with cooking oil spray and place the fish on the foil.
    6. 6
      Fill the cavity of the fish with layers of lime slices and ginger slices.
    7. 7
      Combine the oil, fish sauce, grated ginger and garlic in a small bowl.
    8. 8
      Rub mixture into the cuts in the fish and all over the surface.
    9. 9
      Bring foil around fish so it will contain the cooking juices but do not cover the top of the fish.
    10. 10
      Bake for about 20 minutes, or until almost cooked through.
    11. 11
      While fish is baking, combine the palm sugar, chilli, extra fish sauce and lime juice in a small bowl.
    12. 12
      Spoon this mixture over the fish and bake for another 5 minutes or until fish is just cooked through.
    13. 13
      You can use 2 800gram fish if you prefer, but cut the cooking time to 15 minutes.
    14. 14
      The fish can be rubbed with the ginger mixture up to 6 hours ahead, but only bake just before serving.

      This is excellent, and after-work friendly as well. I made this as is, using a 3 lb. whole Lake Superior white fish, 1 inch of ginger sliced, and roasted the fish at 425° F. I also added a dash of soy to the sauce in step #11 and I garnished with chopped, fresh cilantro and served with steamed jasmine rice and sauteed bok choy. You're right Dale, I think this would be excellent with coconut rice and if I wasn't so rushed after work, I would have done the rice that way. My husband picked the bones clean with his chopsticks and said to give you a million stars. Thanks Dale!

      Excellent excellent!! I have just had this for dinner and it went down very well. I served it with Ken Hom's stir fried mixed vegetables (recipe posted today) and steamed rice. Definitely a keeper.
