    I wanted to cook my family a healthy meal of fish and vegetables. You can use any white fish fillets, like cod, haddock or even sea bass.

    Serves: 4 

    • 4 (100g) white fish fillets
    • 12 asparagus spears, trimmed
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
    • 2 spring onions, chopped
    • Sauce
    • 160ml white wine

    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas mark 4. Grease a baking tin.
    2. Wrap each fish fillet around 3 spears of asparagus and secure with wooden skewers. Season the fish with salt and pepper, then place in prepared baking tin. Cover with foil and bake for 10 minutes.
    3. Remove the foil and sprinkle the chopped spring onion over the fish. Return the tin, uncovered, to the oven to bake for an additional 5 to 10 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
    4. While the fish is baking, heat the wine in a small saucepan over medium heat. In a small bowl, combine the cornflour and lemon juice and whisk until there are no visible clumps. Add the cornflour mixture to the white wine, cooking and stirring to prevent lumps. Add the basil and black pepper and continue to cook for 2 minutes or until the sauce is thickened.
    5. To serve, remove the skewers from the fish fillets and spoon sauce over top.

    I made this last night for my family. The talapia and asparagus was very good but my suggestion for the sauce would be to allow your guests to put the sauce on themselves. It has a very strong flavor and very little is needed for the fish. Enjoy, Rosanne  -  21 Jan 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I was very disappointed in this recipe. I could have made something better with my tilapia. the asparagus didn't get done in the length of time it took for the fish to cook, so was very crunchy, and i just didn't like how intense the flavor of the sauce was. sorry!  -  06 Apr 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Definite potential...sauce was too strong so I didn't use in fear of dry fish, I opened the oven, took out the pan of fish and asparagus and added a little olive oil, some garlic powder and a little more salt/pepper...and topped off with fresh greated parmasean cheese. put back in the oven and it came out great! Really filling!!  -  03 Dec 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
