Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Lime Baked Fish With Pineapple Rice

Preheat the oven to 180°C/ 160°C (fan)/ 400°F/ Gas 6

Add the rice, coriander seeds and a large pinch of salt to a medium pot over a high heat with 500ml [1L] cold water

Bring to the boil and cook for 25-30 min or until tender with a slight bite

Drain and return to the pot, covered, until later

2 Lime Baked Fish With Pineapple Rice

Meanwhile, zest the lime[s] then cut 4 [8] thin slices from the centre[s] and reserve the remaining ends for garnish 

Peel the ginger (scrape the skin off with a teaspoon) and finely chop (or grate)

Chop the bottom half of the coriander (mainly stalks) finely, saving the leaves for a later step

3 Lime Baked Fish With Pineapple Rice

Grind the lime zest, ginger, half the coriander, a pinch of salt and pepper and 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] vegetable oil in a pestle and mortar to form a paste

Tip: If you don't have a pestle and mortar, chop everything very finely and mix with vegetable oil

4 Lime Baked Fish With Pineapple Rice

Place the fish onto a lightly oiled baking tray (use tin foil to avoid a mess)

Spread the lime/ginger paste over the fish

Top each fillet with 2 lime slices

 

5 Lime Baked Fish With Pineapple Rice

Cook the fish on the top rack for 8-10 min or until the lime slices are beginning to brown

Tip: Your fish is cooked when it turns opaque and flakes easily

6 Lime Baked Fish With Pineapple Rice

Meanwhile, chop the pineapple finely

Chop the remaining coriander (mainly leaves) roughly

7 Lime Baked Fish With Pineapple Rice

Once the rice has been cooked and drained, add the pineapple and the remaining coriander

Stir to combine
