Alida Ryder is such a fabulous cook and photographer. Trawling through her website, I always feel inspired to cook. Her food is generous, in terms of colour, aroma and packs a real flavour punch. Here she uses SASSI friendly hake to create a deliciously sauced tranche of fish.
Preparation time 5 minutes
Cooking time 15 minutes
Total time 20 minutes
for the lemon-cream sauce
1 cup cream
juice and zest of 2 lemons
2 garlic cloves, minced
salt & pepper to taste
for the fish
4 fish fillets (I used fresh hake)
¾ cup flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons seasoning spice of your choice (I used a fish spice)
To make the sauce, combine all the ingredients in a small saucepan and allow to simmer for 10 minutes until reduced slightly.
For the fish, combine the flour, salt & seasoning spice and coat the fish fillets thoroughly.
Fry the fish in a hot pan (in a little vegetable oil, skin-side down first) until golden brown then carefully flip over and fry for another 4-5 minutes until the fish is cooked through and golden brown.
Serve the cooked fish with the sauce, capers, asparagus & fresh bread.
