Soy and Sweet Chilli Fish

fish in soy and sweet chilli sauce with rice and steamed greens

This 4 ingredient baked fish recipe is quick, easy and totally delicious.

This is an old recipe but it’s a goodie and it’s always on high rotation at our place. It’s one of those recipes that takes mere minutes to throw together and yet it tastes like you’ve been slaving over the stove for hours! 

It’s delicious served with rice and/or steamed veggies, we usually dish up some of these Steamed Asian Veggies on the side.

Whenever my mum eats a really good home cooked meal, she always ask “now if you had this in a restaurant, imagine how much it would cost!” I think mum would consider this dish priceless – it’s so fast, fabulous and full of flavour! 

What’s on high rotation at your place? Do your prefer to eat out or dine in at home?
