Shared Affair Catering > Recipes > SOY, GINGER & SESAME BAKED SNAPPER

This recipe will literally take you less that 20 minutes to whip up but is so impressive to serve. If you have guests over finish the fish off with the hot oil and garnishes at the table. It makes an incredible sizzle and the smell is amazing, we love a bit of theater with our food!

5cm piece of ginger cut into julienne
