As I have already shared with you Valentine’s day had been extra special this year most of all because my husband and I spent it together watching, for the first time, international tennis open (Qatar total open 2013). We got to see Serena Williams and Sharapova in person whack their tennis rockets. It was fun and really exciting. Yesterday was actually the quarter finals and of course Sharapova, Radwanska, Azarenka, and Williams are on for the finals. We thought that Serrena is not going to make. She almost lost it Czec’s Petra Kvitova. It was indeed a tough fight and I almost lost my voice chanting and shouting Serrena’s name. The game was breath-taking. Too bad I won’t be able to watch the semi-finals today. Frederick is off for work and I’m left all alone in the house, blogging. You see, I still cannot go out on my own. I’m still scared you know. It’s difficult to get a taxi and I just don’t feel comfortable going around alone. So, I will just have to watch the game on tv later on this afternoon around 5pm I think
Anyway, since my husband requested that I cook healthier dishes and since I am not in the mood to do anything complicated, I decided to do my usual “lazy dish” – that’s either baked or steamed. Here is another baked fish recipe. Delicious, nutritious and healthy. Match it with any vegetable of your choice – boiled french beans or some greens 😉

1. Sliced the fish from its backbone through its belly to make a perfect pouch.
2. Mix all the ingredients for the sauce and set aside
4. Grease the aluminum foil with a tsp of vegetable oil
5. Layout the fish on the aluminum foil then sprinkle a teaspoon of the sauce inside the fish cavity then stuff it with the onions, tomatoes, and ginger. Leave some to be placed outside the fish cavity
6. Sprinkle each side of the fish with the sauce and powdered black pepper. Wrap the aluminumfoil around the fish then place it on a baking pan/dish.
7. Bake the fish at 180OC for at least 20 to 30 minutes. If there is no blood oozing from the fish, then it is cooked
You do not need any dips for this as the sauce that will be produce is tasty enough to go with the fish meat.
