Chinese Baked Fish

I’ll put this recipe in the category of tasty and fast. The recipe is literally 30 minutes from preparation to food on the table. I like this recipe also because I invented it. It is fashioned around many similar recipes that you can order in most authentic Chinese restaurants.


  • fish filets (whiting, tilapia, flounder)
  • green onions
  • ginger
  • cilantro
  • soy sauce
  • sesame oil
  • red pepper
  • sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Chop finely large amounts of ginger and green onions. In a large baking dish, make a nice size bed of green onions and ginger, and then lay each filet on top of the bed. Then liberally sprinkle more ginger and green onions on top of filets. Mix in a small cup 1 tablespoon of soy sauce and 1 table spoon of sesame oil, 1 table spoon sugar, and a dash of red pepper. (Don’t put in too much red pepper). Slowly pour the soy sauce mixture over each piece of fish just making each fish a little brown.

Cover with tin foil and place in the oven for 15 minutes. Remove the foil, and sprinkle chopped cilantro. Serve with rice.
