1/2 c Chopped green pepper

1 tb Grated green ginger
1 ts Soy sauce
6 Shallots or spring onions
Salt, pepper (extra)
1 lg Tomato

Wash and scale fish. Combine in bowl rice, diced celery, peeled and finely-chopped onion, green pepper, salt and pepper, mix well. Stuff fish firmly with rice mixture; place in well-greased baking dish.

Melt butter in pan, remove from heat; add lemon juice, ginger, soy sauce, chopped shallots, salt and pepper. Pour over fish. Bake uncovered, in moderately slow oven 40-50 mins, or until fish is cooked, basting frequently with pan juices while cooking.

Peel extra onion, cut into slices, slice tomato. Half-way through cooking time, arrange tomato and onion slices alternately over fish. Place fish on serving plate when cooked, pour pan juices over. Sprinkle with parsley.
