I bought 2 cod fish steaks and took awhile to decide how to cook it. The balsamic vinegar I bought from Italy was tempting, but at the same time I fancied a bit ginger and chilli taste. So I mixed both and surprisingly, it turned out quite well.
2 cod fish steak
1-2 bird’s eye chillies, finely chopped
2-3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
1/2 inch ginger, finely sliced
3-4 fresh basil, finely chopped
1 tsp olive oil
1 tbsp butter
1 tsp of balsamic vinegar
salt & coarsely grounded pepper to taste
1. Marinate fish with all the ingredients (except the butter) for 5-10mins.
2. Heat up the pan on medium heat. Add the butter.
3. Once the butter has melted, put in the fish. Pan fried both sides for about 3-5 minutes, depending on thickness.
