DIRECTIONS

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