4 - 6 oz filets
1 Tablespoon of fresh ginger - grated
1/4 cup of soy sauce
2 tablespoons sesame oil
1 bunch scallions ( I'm from Louisiana - we use chopped green onion) your choice
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
preheat oven to 425, place each filet on its own piece of aluminum foil - about 10 x 10. Combine all ingredients except for shallots in small mixing bowl, then spoon evenly on top of each filet. Add scallions then close foil securely. Place in baking dish into oven. Bake 10-12 minutes. It's is yummy!
I eat it at least once a week!
Ooh, thiss sounds like it might be similar to my friend's recipe, though her's also has bell pepper slices, cilantro, and lemongrass, and some type of red chile paste coloring the sauce red (the only clue my friend will give me is that there are no tomatoes in it). I think there's also tamarind.
I keep telling her she needs to market her sauce, because it's so awesome.
