Garlic Baked Basa Fish

The Basa Fish as it is known in North America is a type of catfish that is native to Asia, the white fish is a fresh water fish and can be bought at relatively cheap price due to them being a very fast growing fish. The Basa Fish is becoming a very popular in North America not only for it's low price but the fact it is a very tasty fish. The fish is high in protein and low in fat and contains the good fat that we all need in Omega 3.

This recipe takes less then 30 minutes to bake and is great for a week night meal, if you make a few servings then you can take it to work for lunch the next day or have it again for dinner the following night. Baking fish is one of the healthier ways you can make fish and more importantly your home wont have any odor as you would get from frying the fish. Add your favourite side to go along with the Basa, whether that be rice, pasta or vegetables.
