King Fish Steaks in Coconut Ginger Sauce

This dish consists of king fish steaks marinated in green seasoning and simmered in a creamy coconut ginger sauce.

Fish is one of those dishes that goes well all year round. In the winter we like our fish stewed in a sauce giving a more filling bite compared to some of our lighter summer meals.

King fish is a common name for a variety of fish however most popular is the King Mackerel. We usually get ours frozen in thick steaks but fresh is always best.

Can’t find King fish? No problem, use any fish steak you like!

Coconut Ginger Sauce

This sauce is actually quite light. The aromatics come from the fresh ginger and herbs from the freezer seasoning. Its also very quick and easy to make making this a great one pan meal for a weeknight.

I would say this is a pretty healthy meal as it mainly consists of fresh herbs and veg. The only really fatty ingredient is the butter, however make the sauce even healthier by subbing the butter for coconut oil or a lighter oil.

Also to note, not everyone uses fresh ginger. I love fresh ginger as it gives a sweet heat to sauces and marinades. If you don’t have fresh ginger handy, ginger powder will also do. Use about 1 – 2tsp to equal 2 inch slices of fresh.
