There are days when Mohit and I like to go carb-free for dinner. For such days, I like to make something with chicken, fish, tofu, or paneer and serve it with a nice salad.

This fish recipe is great when you are looking to make something delicious and healthy. It requires minimal clean-up and comes together in no time.

About Honey Garlic Fish

As the name suggests, Honey Garlic Fish is fish cooked in a honey garlic-flavored sauce.

It is a great dinner dish that comes together in under 20 minutes using simple ingredients. Serve it with steamed rice or quinoa for a comforting meal. You can also serve it with salad to keep it healthy.

Ingredients

Fish – I used boneless basa pieces, but you can use any white fish. Cod, tilapia, halibut, sole, grouper, etc., work great in this recipe. You can also use salmon if you wish to.

Instead of fish pieces, you can use fish fillets.

To make the sauce, you will need light olive oil, honey, garlic, dark soy sauce, black pepper powder, and lime juice.

Garnish the dish with chopped green onions.

Pro Tips By Neha

I did not add salt to this recipe as the soy sauce is very salty. If you feel the salt is less for you, add it as per your taste.
