A lovely soothing dinner to ease a stressful day.
Working under stress, at a fast pace, can mean feeling nauseous and dizzy - and here's where ginger can help.
Onions are good for the heart and reducing high blood pressure, but my belief is also that eating for your heart also nurtures the heart emotion, that overwhelm that can come with stress.
And white fish is soothing on the digestive tract, soft and soothing to eat too.
Serve with a little white rice (which is easier to digest than brown) and with a green vegetable stir-fry, with a little chilli and soy sauce, to give hope and vibrancy ...
This is a good choice for a dinner to wind down, take some time, allow yourself to relax, let all that jumpiness and tightness unwind a little.
I use my beloved remoska electric cooker for this, but you could put the fish into foil parcels on a baking tray or just straight into an ovenproof dish with a lid - and cook in a medium heat oven.
Here's what you'll need for two:
2 white fish fillets (cod, hake, haddock - up to you)
2 tablespoons ginger, peeled and grated
2 garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped
1 tablespoon light brown demerera sugar
4 teaspoons fish sauce
the zest and juice of a lime
1 onion, peeled and finely sliced
coriander leaves to garnish, if liked
Put the fish into the remoska, foil or oven-dish and add a few sprays (or a couple of teaspoons) of oil, then the ginger, garlic, sugar, fish sauce, lime zest and juice and a splash of water and cook in a medium oven for 20 minutes or so - check that it's cooked through.
Cook your rice and any vegetables you'e serving with this ready for when the fish has cooked.
Five minutes before the end of the fish cooking time add a few sprays or a little oil to a non-stick frying pan and cook the sliced onion until soft and golden.
Serve the fish with rice and vegetables and topped with the fried onion and coriander leaves.
