Chef Ray: Baked Fish with Beetroot and Mint Salsa

Qwik and simple to make, flavoursome to boot.

From: Macri, Liz (Sep 2016)  in: Single Serve Healthy Food Guide

Serves: 1

  • 1 frozen hoki fillet (around 110g)
  • 1/3 cup reduced-salt chicken stock
  • 1/3 cup wholemeal couscous
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons chopped mint leaves, plus extra to garnish
  • 2/3 cups diced cooked or canned beetroot
  • 2 spring onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons crumbed reduced-fat ricotta
  • 1 cup baby rocket
  1. Cook frozen hoki fillet according to packet instructions.
  2. Meanwhile heat stock to a simmer, add couscous, cover and set aside for 3-4 minutes before adding lemon zest and half the mint and fluffing grains with a fork.
  3. Place diced beetroot, spring onion, remaining mint, lemon juice and olive oil in a medium bowl to make salsa; stir to combine.
  4. Put hoki and couscous on a plate. Spoon beetroot salsa onto fish; scatter with crumbed ricotta, garnish with mint leaves and serve with rocket.

Although I’m not a qualified chef I do like to pretend I’m on Master Chef. I source the recipes from the stated source (not sauce) and make them taking the photo of the meal I produce for myself.
