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.
