Asian-style oven-baked fish

Ingredients (serves 2)
* 2 whole fish, about 450g each (we used tailor)
* 2 tbs vegetable or sunflower oil
* 1 tbs sesame seeds
* 2cm piece ginger, peeled, cut into wafer- thin strips
* 1 red chilli, seeds removed, cut into thin strips
* 1/3 cup (80ml) soy sauce
* 1 tbs white wine vinegar
* 2 shallots (spring onions), sliced diagonally, to garnish
* Steamed rice, to serve

1. Preheat the oven to 220°C.
2. Clean and scale the fish (see above). Make 2 slashes in the thickest part of the fish flesh. Brush a roasting pan with 1 tablespoon of the oil and place fish in the pan. Brush the flesh with remaining oil, season with salt and pepper, and sprinkle with the sesame seeds. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the fish are cooked through (the flesh will flake away easily when tested with a fork).
3. Meanwhile, place the ginger, chilli, soy, vinegar and 2 tablespoons of water in a pan. Cook over low heat until the ginger and chilli have started to soften. Place the fish on a large plate and pour the Asian-style dressing over top. Garnish with shallots and serve with rice.
