Surprisingly easy and delicious fish dish. Sometimes plain steamed fish is boring. I am always trying to incorporate more fish into my diet and this is such a quick and easy way to do it. The fish is steamed lightly in a foil bag. But what transforms the dish is the sweet smoked paprika. It turns the flesh of the fish a beautiful vibrant red colour and gives it a subtle smokey flavour. You could easily do this up for a dinner part using a a hole large fish and open up the parcel at the table for the wow factor. Or enjoy it as I do - just for one.
