Gingered Fish

"Inspired by a recipe from Cooking Light, this is a simple but full flavored dish. The original calls for flounder but works well with sole and other mild fishes. Really surprised this isn't in the 'Zaar collection already as it is one of our favorites."

Ready In:




  • Using a damp cheesecloth or your hand, squeeze grated ginger over a small bowl gathering the ginger juice.
  • Combine 2 tablespoons ginger juice, soy sauce, sherry, lemon juice, and sugar or sugar substitute in a large food storage bag or bowl; add fish, turning or gently shaking to coat.
  • Marinate in refrigerator 20 minutes, turning fish occasionally.
  • Remove fish from marinade; discard marinade.
  • Place fish on broiler pan coated with cooking spray and broil 3 minutes (do not turn); brush oil over fish, and broil an additional minute or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.
  • Place fish on individual serving plates, and drizzle remaining tablespoon ginger juice over fish; garnish with scallions.

    i used tilapia fillets and i didn't have any fresh ginger on hand so i used crystallized ginger slices instead and omitted the sugar, letting it soften a bit in the lemon juice and soy sauce before chopping it. i have a spacemaker oven that doesn't have a broil option, so i let it bake for 10 minutes at 450 degrees, brushing on the sesame oil after 5 minutes. i served it with steamed broccoli and jasmine rice. for me, the green onions made the dish. my bf raved about it and asked that i make it again. thanks!

    I really enjoyed this. I think it would be great grilled, but I made it in the oven. I made this for Potluck Tag! Thanks for posting this yummy recipe!

    Super simple with fabulous flavor. Kids loved it and with fish that is quite a compliment.

    This dish was... a little flat for us. We ate it, but without enthusiasm. I think it needs a bit more complexity, a few more ingredients, to truly be a remarkable recipe. Probably won't make this again.

    I worried about the ginger being a bit too much for my taste, but this is really great. I love fish of all types, so this recipe is great for me.


<p>I come from a long line of wonderful cooks and doing my best to hold up that tradition. My great-grandparents owned a coffee shop; my Nana was also a great cook and started the tradition of baking around the holidays, both cookies and fruitcakes. After she died, now a decade ago, our family decided to continue in her honor. The picture above is my mother's (Chef Hot Pans) dining room table just before we packed up our Christmas cookie trays. More that 20 kinds of cookies, many of which are from 'Zaar recipes. <br /> <br />I myself am an amateur cook with a penchant for ethnic foods and spice. Currently reforming my menu in favor of healthy dishes lower in fat with lots of grains and vegetables. My favorite cuisines are Mexican, Southwestern and North African. <br /> <br /> <br />Some of my favorite public cookbooks include:</p> <li>ladypit's <a href=> WW Core Recipes I Have Tried </a> </li> <p>&nbsp;</p> <li>shirl(j)831's <a href=> Can this really be lowfat??? </a> </li> <p>&nbsp;</p> <li>julesong's <a href=> Cooking Light Recipes </a> </li> <p>&nbsp;</p> <li>mariposa13's <a href=> WW &amp; Lowfat Recipes </a> </li> <p><br /><img src= alt=Dirty /> <br /><a href=;current=kitchen-special-hot2-1.jpg target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><img src= alt=Image /><img src= alt=FFF#2 width=50% /> <br /><img src= alt=Image /><img src= alt=Image /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src= border=0 alt=Adopted /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src= border=0 alt=PAC /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo /> <br /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /> <br /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=ZWT3 /><img src= alt=width=50% /> <br /><img src= alt=/ /></p>
