Baked Jacket Fish (Ikan Barat, Unicorn Fish, Scientific name Monacanthidae) with Pineapple Recipe

Fish with 'jacket' on but the flesh is white and sweet!
This is a simple and quick recipe but I guess only jacket fish is suitable to be used in this recipe. The meaty texture and sweet jacket fish flesh blends well with the simple spices used. It took me a jiffy to prepare this dish; marinade the fish, wrap it up with aluminium foil and pop it in the oven for 25 minutes! I threw in a few pieces of pineapples as well to give it some fruitiness flavours.

Jacket fish, 1 pc (I used half cut from a large fish for this recipe)
Turmeric, 1 teaspoon
Chilli powder, ½ teaspoon
Lemon juice, 1 table spoon
Salt to taste
A little vegetable oil
Pineapples, 7 to 8 pcs
Onions, 1 pc, cut into 4

Marinade the fish with all the ingredients and set it aside for 15 minutes. Spread out an aluminium foil and put the fish on it. Pour all the excess gravy into the foil. Wrap it up and bake in preheated oven at 200 Deg C for 25 minutes. Serve with white rice.

I like sweet sour and chilli combo sauce on fish.

Looks good...like assam fish minus the assam, add the lemon and pineapple - sour sour? Yum! Yum!

Looks kind of watery... wouldn't it be nicer if it was slightly more thick in the sauce? But of course I won't know until I get to try... so when you letting me try a bite? :P
