Basa Fish Fillet

Bangus, tilapia, galunggong or Gg, alumahan, dalagang bukid, trout, mackarel, tuna and salmon are the most common fish I knew and trust. I seldom bought  unfamiliar ones except recommend by family and friends. 

When my mother visited me and my family here in Dublin, she introduced to me this called Basa Fish. In case you don't know either, it is native to countries such as Vietnam, Thailand, Burma, China, Cambodia and Laos. With their abundance, other countries around the world are also getting them through importation. 

My nanay (mom) taught me to cook it like fish and chips style. But sometimes I don't have the luxury of time to make batter and fry them, I tried a very easy way to cook it or I should say bake it. 

Using a baking tray lined with kitchen foil, lay down your basa fillet. Season with salt, pepper and lemon juice. Massage gently with butter of your choice ( I used light butter.) Sprinkle generously with sliced spring onion. Put inside a pre-heated oven at 180 deg C. Cook for 20- 30 minutes. Don't over cooked it as it will dry up the meat. 

You can topped it with mayonnaise before serving with chips or rice. Hope you like it.
