Let’s try to cook a little healthier than usual. I am not a huge fish fan, but this recipe is certainly one of the fish dishes that I think I will make again. Like my other recipes, this is still super easy, does not involve fancy ingredients, and anyone can do it. So, without further ado, let’s start cooking some fish!
You will need:
2 fish steaks (I used tuna)
Let’s get cooking!
- Whisk together olive oil, soy sauce, brown sugar, grated ginger, lemon zest, granulated garlic, and pepper.
- Marinate the fish steaks into the mixture for at least 30 minutes. Cover with plastic wrap and put in the fridge.
- Remove the fish steaks from the fridge and allow them to come to room temperature before baking at 200 degrees for 7 to 10 minutes, depending on how well you done want your steaks.
- Serve with a side of lemon wedges.
I did not add lemon juice to the marinade because it will cook the fish. But since I wanted the lemon flavor, I added the zest.
I also did not add any salt because I felt that the soy sauce was salty enough, and the salt might dry out the tuna. I added the remaining marinade on top of the fish steaks so that the sugar will caramelize and brown the fish. Another optional step that I did was to place the fish on a tray with aluminum foil coated with olive oil; this was because I did not want to risk the fish steaks sticking to the tray. You can also pan-fry or grill the fish steaks, then reduce the marinade so that you will have a sauce on top to serve with it.
Serve this while warm; the squeeze of lemon really added a brightness to the fish steaks.
