I’m feeling a little bit smug at the moment.
Late last week I received a delicious fish pack from WING OF ST MAWES, THE CORNISH FISHMONGER (even the name sounds cool, right??) packed with Sea Bass, hot-smoked Mackerel, and that good-old fishy classic; Sardines.
I played it safe with the Sea Bass to begin with; grilling it in a little olive oil…
…and serving it up with bulgar wheat and quinoa, and roasted Mediterranean vegetables.
Then I got all inventive-like. We were catching up with some rellies over a BBQ (hey, I’m from New Zealand, it’s what we do) so I smeared the leftover fillets with a bit of garlic butter, laid a sprig of rosemary across each of them, and wrapped them both with tin foil. Then I chucked them on the grill to get, well, grilled.
And this was the result!
I’ll be totally honest – it was a teensy-weensy bit overcooked, but for a first attempt I was pretty happy. The garlic and rosemary added a twist of flavour without overpowering the delicate taste, and it was a nice, light alternative to the usual meaty BBQ fare of sausages, lamb, hamburger patties.
Next I’ll be tackling the hot-smoked Mackerel. Watch this space!
