    garlic, cloves crushed
  • 2
    teaspoons minced gingerroot
  • 2
    teaspoons chili paste (like sambal oelek- can also use fresh, alter to taste)
  • 2
    teaspoons chopped coriander (cilantro)
  • 1
    tablespoon lime juice
  • 1
    tablespoon peanut butter (this will make enough for 2 fish, halve if only one of you wants peanut butter) (optional)

DIRECTIONS

  • Mix all marinade ingredients except peanut butter in a small bowl or cup. Taste to check for seasoning.
  • If you are adding the peanut butter, add it to the mix and stir to create a thick paste.
  • Spread over frozen or fresh fish fillets.
  • Put fillets onto a plate with a microwave cover or place them in a shallow covered container (but make sure a little of the steam can escape). If fish are frozen, cook on high for at least 6-7 minutes (depending on thickness of fish). If thawed, about 4-5 minutes should be sufficient. This will change depending on your microwave so do check the fish by checking the colour in the centre of the fillet (it should be opaque).
  • Serve with rice and a crisp salad.
