Fish with Ginger and Chilli

Font Size:

There are several fish species that people turn their noses up at, many for reasons unknown. In this recipe, we recommend Australian salmon because the flavour is quite light and allows you to add a whole bunch of different culinary elements. However, you can substitute salmon with most other fish varieties.

Serves: 2


    • 1 1/2 tablespoons freshly grated ginger
    • 40g plain flour
    • 2 Australian salmon fillets (or fish of your choice)
    • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 20g butter
    • 1/2 lime, sliced, to serve
    • coriander leaves, to serve
    • chilli, sliced, to serve
    • salt, to taste
    • pepper, to taste

Mix the ginger with the flour and coat the fillets in this mixture.

Heat a glug of olive oil with a knob of butter in a frying pan over medium heat, and cook each fillet for 2-4 minutes on each side, or until cooked.

Serve with a slice of lime, coriander and chilli, and season to taste.
