Chinese Style Baked Brill Chinese Style Baked Brill

Brill is a lovely flat white fish, not at all dissimilar to turbot. Quite a nice firm flesh that works beautifully with these traditional Chinese flavours. The dish takes a bit of fiddly chopping and slicing, but it can all be done when the fish is in the oven!

  1. Brush the fish with olive oil, sprinkle with coarse sea salt and lay on well greased baking tray or sheet of parchment paper. Bake in a moderate oven (160-180 degrees) for 20 minutes or so, until the fish is just cooked
  2. Whilst it's in the oven, do all your chopping and slicing of the garlic, ginger and salad onions
  3. Then heat the oil in a pan and, add in the garlic and ginger and fry for a minute or so before pouring in the soy sauce. If you want to sweaten, add a little honey! Transfer the fish to a serving platter, pour over the sauce with a sprinkling of the sesame seeds and finish with the salad onions. Serve with rice

I'm Siân, a passionate foodie all my life... I started out working with hotels and restuarants in London, to get young people into the industry and develop their basic skills. Moves and changes over the years have taken me in broader directions, but with a different work/life balance now, I'm back to food... sharing easy, healthy meal ideas for you to experiment yourself with in the kitchen! There's lots of fish, beans and vegetables! Happy cooking!
