Ginger Fish

Country: Fiji
Course: Main
Makes: 6 to 9 servings


  • 2-3 lbs firm white fish (I used cod)
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup corn oil
  • 3/4 cups white wine
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 2 tsp ginger root, grated
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • Parsley, coriander or slivered ginger root (for garnish)


  1. Rinse and pat dry the fish. Rub the lemon juice all over the fillets and refrigerate for about an hour. Then brush on the vegetable oil and place in a shallow casserole dish.
  2. Put the soy sauce, corn oil, wine, garlic, sugar and ginger into a blender and pulse. Pour over the fish.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees, basting frequently, for 40 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork (you can also use a meat thermometer and bake to an internal temperature of 145 degrees). Garnish and serve.
