Let’s dive into making this super easy delightful baked fish

You’ll need:
1 Basa fish Fillet I used @aquastar frozen fillet

2 tbsp Butter at room temp @gayleafoodscoop

3-4 cloves thinly sliced garlic
3 tbsp finely chopped fresh basil and 1 tsp Italian Herb mix and 1 tsp chilli flakes

If you’re using a frozen fillet, thaw it in a plastic bag by dipping the bag in cold water for 30-40 mins

Once thawed, using a paper towel, pat the fillet completely dry

Preheat your oven to 400F

In a baking tray lined with parchment paper, place the thawed, dried fillet. Lightly grease the parchment paper, before placing the fillet

Now in a bowl, let’s make the fillet seasoning. Add butter, fresh basil, herb mix, sliced garlic, 1 tbsp olive oil and using a small whisk or a fork, mix it thoroughly

Using a spatula, cover the fillet with the seasoning on both sides. Now add lemon juice and 1 tbsp olive oil and chilli flakes (optional) on the top

Fillet, covered in Butter Garlic Herb mix ready to go into the oven

Toss it in the preheated oven for 18-20 mins and done!!!

Enjoy it with a side of salads, pastas, breads or just by itself. A super satisfying, delicious, and under 30 min meal
