I picked up some basa at the grocery a couple days ago - figured we'd try something new. Next, I hunted down this simple recipe. This fish is like the chicken of fish. It could taste like anything with the right seasoning, it doesn't have that distinct "fishy" taste as some other breeds thus making it perfect for people (like my children and mother) who don't normally like fish.
4 basa steaks
4 oz (100g) butter
handful chopped parsley
Take the butter and mix into it the chopped parsley, a dash of lemon and some pepper. Roll into a sausage shape and leave it in the fridge whilst you cook your fish.
Heat the grill, line and grease your grill pan.
Place the basa fish steaks about 4" (10cm) from the heat and grill for about 5 minutes either side - brushing with oil to prevent them drying out.
Serve immediately with a portion of the parsley and lemon butter on top.
I also threw a sliced (length wise) cucumber and a sliced & deseeded green bell pepper on the grill and let them cook along side the fish. It almost felt like spring - 30 degrees out, melted snow, and I was grilling.
