Basa Fillets Baked in Lemon, Garlic and Butter with Coconut Rice

I like to keep my dinners rather simple, without any rumpus!!! So for the simple baking with a few ingredients often found in the everyday kitchen, here it is...

Basa Fish Fillets – 2 slabs, or any white fish of your preference
Butter – 3 tbs, melted
Salt – ¼ tsp
Ground Black Pepper – 1/8 tsp
Garlic – 2 tbs, finely chopped
Lime – 2 halves
Coriander Leaves – a handful roughly chopped
Rosemary – just a sprinkle

Preheat the oven to 180C. In a shallow baking dish, mix in the butter, garlic, salt and pepper. Place the fish filets into this mixture so that both sides are evenly coated. Cover the dish with aluminium foil and bake for about 10minutes. Take it out from the oven, and remove the foil. Squeeze the lime over each fillet. Sprinkle in the cilantro and a sprinkle of roasmary and place back in the oven for about 10minutes, until the fish is all flaky and sides start to have some colour. Serve the fish over a bed of coconut rice. You may notice a lot of pan juice, you may chose to spoon it over the filets and rice or toss it. Enjoy!!!

Coconut Rice
Long Grain Basamati Rice – 1cup
Water – 3/4cup
Coconut Milk – 1/4cup
Salt to taste

Cook the rice till tender with water coconut milk and salt as required.
