If you think cooking with seafood was too difficult, you obviously haven’t come across Bonfire Baked Fish, so think again. Simply add your fish to the marinade, cook and serve. That’s it. Great tasting food pronto! Great for those on the go or for food prep. And what’s even better it’s a great meal for building muscle and increasing your fitness. Wild caught fish is a fantastic source of protein and Omega 3’s needed to repair those muscle fibers after a grueling session, which equates to more muscle. Pair this with the necessary carbohydrates of the steamed Basmati rice to fuel your body and your set for another set (of repetitions)!



  • 4 fillets (200g each) John Dory or Barramundi
  • Steamed basmati rice, steamed bok choy and lemon wedges, to serve
  • Marinade
  • 2cm piece ginger, peeled, grated
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 green onion, cut into 4 pieces
  • ⅓ cup soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil


Make marinade;

Combine ginger, garlic, onion, green onion, soy sauce, oil and pepper in a large ceramic dish.
Add fish to marinade. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 220°C.
Cut four 50cm lengths of foil.
Place 1 fish fillet in the center of each piece of foil.
Spoon 2 tablespoons of marinade over each. Fold up to form parcels. (Seal the edges so juices won’t run out).
Place on a large baking tray.
Bake fish for 15-20 minutes or until cooked through.
Remove fish from foil and place on plates. Pour over any juices from the parcels and serve with steamed rice, bok choy, and lemon wedges.
