RECIPE: Oriental Baked Salmon

This is a recipe I've got planned for next week, but I thought I'd share it now. I think I've had it before - it sounds familiar, but I'm not sure. So it could be horrid! I have certainly planned to have it before, but we didn't have it when I had planned.

ORIENTAL BAKED FISH - the recipe is for cod, but I'm going to use salmon. I guess you could use whatever fish you wish. Serves 2

2 cod fillets (though I'm going to use salmon steaks)
1 tsp  grated fresh ginger
Juice 1/2 lemon
1 tbsp soy sauce
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 green chilli, chopped
2 tsp honey

  • Preheat oven to 200°C/400°F
  • Marinade fish for 30 mins in ginger, garlic, & lemon juice for 30 minutes
  • Put fish in foil package, sprinkle with chilli,, & mixed soy sauce and honey. Sprinkle on a little of the marinade.
  • Bake for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, stir fry vegetables of choice, and add egg noodles if desired. Serve fish with the stirfry, pouring any juices over.

On SW the fish itself is 1/2 syn on the Original plan, but I make no promises about the other Syn values.
I've not put this on MFP so I don't know what the calorie count is.


Yesterday wasn't a great day, food wise, although I was pleased with the exercise that I did. I used the bike trainer for 20 minutes. While it wasn't on a particularly difficult level, it was still quite hard work - I'm still getting used to the saddle! Even though I wear cycling shorts, and have a gel saddle, it's still hard on the bottom. It is getting better, but oooh! At the beginning I could hardly take 5 minutes! But with some good music it is a bit easier. And, more scary (!) than that is the fact that at the end, I have a big grin on my face - and not just because it's over, but because I've actually enjoyed it. A bit, at least!

Food-wise I went a bit OTT - I had two glasses of wine, and nibbled on cheese and other bitty bits. It could have been much worse, I know - if I think back to before we started eating more healthily, we'd've had the burger in a bun, with more cheese, plus the chips. Yesterday we had 20g of cheese, no bun, and slightly fewer chips. And loads of salad. And I was perfectly satisfied.


  1. Just want you to know it is NOT too late to join ONE WORLD ONE HEART, if you read my post you will see that I found OWOH before I even had a blog...then as I was going along I made one on 2/5/10 and the hop started on 1/30/10.

    She has people joining right up to the last 5 days I believe, maybe even longer.

    Give it a shot

  2. Thank you so much for your lovely comment on my OWOH blog post. I'm having so much fun visiting everyone's blogs on the tour and really hope that it works out that you can play along too?!

    My hubby would love to try your salmon recipe too! ;-D

  3. Congrats on getting in on the weight loss journey or should I say life change. I started December 28th and hope to lose 50 - 65 lbs by the time I'm done. I'm down 15 so far. I agree that exercising is a chore...but then again if it wasn't, I wouldn't be needing to diet. haha

    Thanks for stopping by my blog to visit for OWOH. I really appreciate it. I hope you will visit again soon.
