Oven Roast Belt/ Ribbon/ Hairtail Fish

Belt fish, also known as cutlass fish, ribbon fish or hairtail fish resembles a thin ribbon or belt (therefore the name) with a sharp pointed head. Whole fish or frozen sections can be usually found in Asian (Korean and Chinese) supermarket. I bought frozen sections (frozen ribbon fish rolls) from online grocery store earlier, not knowing how I want to cook it. This fish is best pan-fried; but since I hardly prep the pan or wok for frying, opted for it to be grilled/roasted in the oven just like other types of fish such as salmon, mackerel, milkfish

And personally, any grilled/roasted fish is great for protein bowls. It may not turn out as crispy as pan-fried version but this alternative delicate way of cooking helps to preserve the mild briny flavors and its nutrition - protein and omega-3 cannot be undermined.
