Ingredients- serves 2 (double quantity for 4 people)

2 x Basa fillets 

2 x Spring onions

1/2 x Red chilli (optional)

1/2 x teaspoon ginger paste

1 x teaspoon olive oil

1 x Garlic clove finely chopped 

4 x cherry tomatoes 

1/2 x fresh lemon 

1/4 x teaspoon paprika 

Salt & Pepper

Tin foil

Method-

Pre heat your oven to 180 degrees.

Cut off a large piece of foil enough to over lap the fish. You need to create a foil pocket for the fish to bake in.

Mix the oil and the ginger paste together and spread evenly over the foil where you will place the fish.

Add the Basa fillets and season with salt, pepper and the paprika.

Chop the spring onion, chilli and tomatoes and sprinkle these over the fish along with the chopped garlic.

Squeeze the lemon half all over each piece of fish and then fold the two edges of foil over the top of fish meeting together in the middle. Pinch the foil ends together to create a pocket this will allow the fish to steam.

Then bake in the oven for 20 minutes and serve.
