A quick marinade using spices from my Scotia Spice pack and left to infuse for half an hour whilst I dyed my hair. Easy! This isn’t a hot dish (the noodles from Markie Sparkies were spicier) so add more chilli for a kick. The taste here is fragrant and pleasantly warming. Would make a good lunch as well as a quick evening dish.

- 2 garlic cloves, crushed
- 1 tsp freshly grated ginger

- To make the marinade, add garlic and ginger in a pestle and mortar and grind until pureed.

- Brush the marinade all over the fillets and leave to marinade for at least half an hour..
