Grilled Halibut with Basil Leaves & Asian Mushroom Sauce

“Grilled fish with Asian mushroom sauce that tingles your taste bud”

This recipe was created for my Christmas dinner in 2010. We had chicken chop the year before, and so, I thought of cooking grilled fish this time. I always have craving for grilled fish fillet recently, but I always cook Chinese meals, if not pasta dishes in normal days. So, this Christmas gave me a good opportunity to explore this grilled fish recipe since I usually cook Western meal for Western festivals as it sounds more appropriate to such celebrations. Further more, grilled fish is much easier to prepare and cook. I wanted a quick cooking for this festive dinner so that I could spare some good time for making my own log cake. read more

Steamed fish is always the best diet for health and diet conscious diners which include, me. :)

Nothing really special for this steamed fish, but I had excessive tomatoes to go along with it. Healthier and more complete as 1-dish meal. The tomatoes also added zesty flavor to my steamed fish and made this fish dish taste more refreshing in a more natural way.

For choice of whole fish, choose sea watered Sea Bass instead of fish from fresh water, to avoid any chance of muddy taste in it. Or, choose any other whole white fleshed fish. Remember, it has to be real fresh! read more
