Fish with orange and chilli

Simple recipes that are quick to make and contain healthy ,wholesome,natural ingredients are exactly the kind of recipes that I keep going back to again and again. The satisfaction of cooking a delicious meal that looks spectacular but involves very little fuss by way of a cooking process or in terms of prep,is what every home cook would like to add to their repertoire !!!! It gives you the time to spend with family as well as allowing you the time to put together a nutritious meal ….enjoying the meal with your loved ones is every bit as important as cooking it…so this one is not only for the lucky tasters but also for the cook :)) I do know a lot of my ‘un’ -veg friends ;)) who will love this recipe…apologies to my veggie readers !!!

The fish that I use is usually a seer fish,which I ask the fish monger to fillet,this time I have used a basa fillet,as the texture lends itself beautifully to the marination required as well as the baking !A flaky ,melt in the mouth texture is what all sea food lovers would want to taste while looking forward to tasting a baked fish dish !

This dish is simple enough to make in large quantities for a party….the only thing you need to remember is that it needs to be served hot,so when you have an understanding (;P) bunch of foodie friends over,this is a no fail dish !!!!

While talking about seafood,I would also like to introduce you to the idea of using a food detoxifier,I have been using it for 2 years now and I can honestly say that it makes a huge difference in the quality of produce that you are eating,my family has definitely had far less or almost nil instances of falling ill after we have begun using the food detoxifier !It is very common in Asia…here in India it is manufactured by Kent,as well as a company called Fariday Ozone(9942933449),based in Coimbatore…do check it out ! An unimaginable amount of toxins come out from all seafood,meat and poultry and sometimes from the fruit and veg as well !
