I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Gochujang Fish with Cucumber Salad

Cooked under the broiler, this Korean inspired meal is a little sweet, a little spicy and takes only minutes to make. I used prepared gochujang sauce from the President's Choice brand as a base, but if you are using gochujang paste only use about 1 tbsp. and you will have considerably less glaze so best to try and find a prepared sauce.

1 1/2 lbs basa fillets (or other white fish)
2 tsps sesame oil
salt and pepper to taste

1/2 cup gochujang sauce
1 1/2 tsps sesame oil
1 1/2 tsps honey
1 tbsp white wine vinegar
2 tsps soya sauce
1 1/2 tsps minced garlic
1 inch ginger, minced

Cucumber Salad:
1 English cucumber, julienned or spiralized
1 tbsp white wine vinegar
1/2 tsp honey
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp sesame seeds
pinch of red pepper flakes

Begin by drying the fish fillets with paper towels, then rub with sesame oil and add salt and pepper to taste. 
Combine the glaze ingredients. Reserve some to serve at the table and use the rest to brush on both sides of each piece of fish. Place them on a parchment lined baking sheet.

Broil for 7-9 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork. 
Whisk the salad dressing ingredients together and toss with the cucumber.

Serve the fish with the reserved sauce on the side, along with the cucumber salad and your favourite rice.
Serves 5
