No oven? Here's how to prepare creamy fish baked in a water bath


Don’t have an oven?  That shouldn’t stop you from making this delicious recipe.

Serves 4-5

Ingredients: 1kg fish fillet 2 large white onions sliced

Sauce: 600ml cream ½ cup tasty cheese, grated 1 clove garlic, finely chopped 1 tablespoon fish sauce Salt and white pepper to taste

Oven directions: Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees celcius/Gas mark 4 Fry the sliced onions until soft but not well done. Make sauce by combining all ingredients in saucepan over medium heat until cheese is melted. Pour half the sauce into an oven proof casserole dish and spread it out evenly to cover the bottom of the dish. Place a layer of fish fillets on the sauce followed by sliced onions, then sauce. Repeat this and finally finish the top with sauce. Bake the fish for 15-20 minutes or until fish is cooked through and the top is browned. Baking with a water bath: Place the oven-proof casserole into the baking tray or cooking pot, which should be over low heat. The casserole should be well double-wrapped with foil paper. Pour room temperature water on the sides (make sure water doesn’t pour into the fish dish). Place a lid or cover with foil paper (this allows steam to bake the fish). Increase fire to medium heat. Allow water to come to a boil then reduce to medium heat. Bake for 20-30mins or until fish is cooked through.

Serve with garden salad rice or baked potatoes and green beans.
