Baked Mediterranean whole fish

Published August 20, 2012 by Mary Jane

Hi Bloggy friends, hope this post finds you all well..haven’t been posting lately…been acting in a new position and well, no time and not feeling up for it. Anyways, I have been keeping up with baking and cooking. I’ve always wanted to bake a whole fish. So I went online to search for a easy recipe. It was a easy Mediterranean stuffed whole fish..the dish was simple enough to whip up. All I need to do is pan fry the stuffings..

pan fry the tomatoes with spring onions..

Then adding some parsley and bread crumbs..with some oregano

Then it was time to wedge the stuffings into the whole fish and bake them in the oven..

slice some tomatoes and put them on top of the whole fish along with the left over bread crumbs…and sprinkle more of oregano mixture…

I had two fish – both weighing around 0.5kg so I baked them on 180 degrees and checking after 30 minutes to make sure they are not over cooked. The last thing you want is dry fish. I also wrap them up in alfoil before I put them into the oven to bake it. Serve with lemon wedges…and it was very tasty…

Comfort Food Recipe – Burramundi Fish Patties

Published March 1, 2010 by Mary Jane

Morning Bloggy Friends, I’m so excited cos today is a public holiday yay no work!! I managed to stay up last night roaming around eating snacks and eventually fell asleep and woke up the next day bright and early around 8.30am so I was feeling ambitious and ended up cleaning the house. Scrubbing of the dirt grime in our bath tub, made the irobot vacuumed the house and even had some time to pick my hot red chillis and made them into chilli sauces. That’s a productive morning. 🙂

Anyways, this particular recipe is very healthy. It basically involves chucking all the ingredients in one big bowl mix it and pan fry it and there you have it…

Here it is

Burramundi Fish Patties

Ingredients

1 x large pieces of burramundi fillet
1 cup of frozen vegies
6 x potatoes
1 x onion
1 x table spoon of olive oil
1 x table spoon of hoi sin sauce
1 x table spoon of oyster sauce
1 cup of bread crumbs
1 x egg
2 x cloves of garlic

Instructions

1. Chop up the potatoes into small pieces and boil them. Once they are cooked mashed them. Now you can substitute the potatoes with sweet potatoes less calories and it gives it a sweeter taste Defrost the frozen vegies, I usually chuck them into the microwave for a minute, chopped the onions into small pieces, pan fried the burramundi in a hot pan with some olive oil.

2. Add into the bowl, vegies, onions, minced garlic, mashed potatoes, minced the fish fillets into small pieces, hoi sin sauce, oyster sauce and salt and pepper for seasoning, add the bread crumbs for binding and an egg.

3. Mix the mixture thoroughly until it becomes a sticky mixture and roll them into a round ball and pan fried them in a hot pan with some olive oil. Make sure you flatten the round balls so it looks like a patty. Pan fry the patties both sides until golden brown for around 10 minutes.

4. Serve the fish patties with thai style warm noodle salad or some plain salad and there you have it delicious fish patties. You can also substitute burramundi fish with salmon it works well. As for frozen vegies you can add in your favourite chopped vegies too.

Enjoy…

Comfort Food Recipe – Baked Fish

Published February 4, 2010 by Mary Jane

Hello again…well, as I’ve mentioned before I’m an animal person so usually when it comes to eating fish, I prefer to cook them in fillets simply because I don’t have to see the fish eye staring at me hehehehe. But, there are times you need to cook a whole fish – they have more flavours than the fish fillets. Whole fish if really hard to cook, because if you over cook them then they become flaky but if you undercook them, even though the outside may seemed cooked the inside is actually raw – more like sashimi hehehehe. So you must take extra care when you are cooking a whole fish. So there’s different variation of cooking a whole fish but here’s mine…

Baked Fish

Ingredients

1 large fish – Snapper
1 large clove of garlic
2-3 stalks of celery
1 Lemon
50g of butter

Instructions

1. To prepare the fish, make sure you knife 3 lines across the flesh, that way it allows the fish to cook faster. Rub in some salt on both sides, inside the cavity pop in some sliced lemon and celery stalks as this gets rid of fish smell and taste. Minced the garlic and rub it onto the fish both sides. Drizzle with olive oil, add some cracked pepper and wrap it with foil leaving some gap for steam to come through.

2. Pop this into the oven for about 180 degrees around 30-40 minutes depends on the size of the fish. Check it after 30 minutes if the flesh falls off, it’s cooked – if it’s hard to take off from the bones, it needs to be in the oven for longer.

There you have it simple and delicious baked fish.

Enjoy…

Comfort Food Recipe – Tikka Salmon with Salad

Published January 30, 2010 by Mary Jane

Good evening people, this is my last post for the evening. As I’ve mentioned earlier, I didn’t feel like cooking cos I was feeling tired. Anyways, since I’ve bought the ingredients for tonight I decide I must persist on. Pandabear said ‘why didn’t you buy 2 min noodles then you don’t have to cook much’ Well, I didn’t – 2 min noodles ain’t that healthy anyways. So tonight’s dish is something I saw on Jamie Oliver’s ministry of food, I vaguely remember how its done..anyways, it didn’t have a good start – I found the salmon I bought had lots of bones and I didn’t have tweezers to pull them out so had to use my finger nails strength that was painful and then I found some scales weren’t probably done, didn’t have the scaling metal thing so had to use my knife. Could this be any harder??? Grrr…but eventually my persistance was rewarded…

Here it is…

Tikka Salmon with Yoghurt Salad

Ingredient

1 piece of salmon
1 table spoon of tikka curry paste
2 cucumbers
2 tomatoes
3 table spoon of plain yoghurt
2 pieces of Nan bread

Instructions

1. First slice the salmon into thin slices, rub in the tikka curry paste. You can buy a jar of these in any supermarket stores. Tikka curry paste has lemony flavour that gets rid of fish taste like salmon.

2. Heat up pan with medium heat and put the salmon pieces into the pan. Few minutes on each side. Now, don’t need to put oil because salmon is rich in omega oil. It may look abit charred but it’s only because of the curry paste.

3. Now to prepare the yoghurt salad, chopped tomatoes, chopped cucumbers, salt and pepper to season and add yoghurt in. Mix it around. Leave some chopped cucumbers and tomatoes aside

4. Placed your Nan bread in the oven for 200 degrees for 10 minutes. You can buy them in packets in any super market.

5. To plate up, lay the fresh Nan bread out of oven onto the plate. Put salmon pieces in the centre, pour the yoghurt salad over the salmon. Sprinkle the remainder chopped cucumbers and tomatoes on top along with my favourite chopped red chillie and if you are a herb person put some chopped coriander on top and it’s perfect.

What I found is the dish is delicious however the salmon and yoghurt makes the Nan bread soggy, so if I were to serve this dish again I would put the Nan bread aside and eat it with salmon and yoghurt salad.

Enjoy…

Comfort Food Recipe – Fish Pie

Published January 26, 2010 by Mary Jane

Okies, as I’ve mentioned earlier I’m more like a chicken person than a fish person but occasionally I would feel like some fish and wanted to learn fish dishes. This dish is very simple, easy to make especially for people who don’t like using knives for lots of chopping or slicing. Everything is grated so no knife skill is required. 🙂

So here it is…

Fish Pie

Ingredients

300g of fish fillet
350g of salmon
100g of prawns
2 carrots
2 celery stalks
150g of cheddar cheese
2 tomatoes
1 x lemon
handful of spinach
1 chilli
6-8 potatoes

Instructions

1. Using a box grater, grate the following – celery, carrots, cheddar cheese and on the finer side of the grater grate in chilli (if you don’t like hot food you can leave this out or only use 1/2)

2. Put the grated items into a rectangular oven baking dish

3. Chop up salmon pieces and fish fillet – you can sometimes get decent fish fillets form seafood place they usually have some off-cuts – which doesn’t have nice shapes but for this particular dish it’s ok. Add in prawns.

4. Chop parsley finely, and squeeze in 1 lemon worth of juices, chop tomatoes into bite size, add in spinach and drizzle on top with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Mix the whole thing around.

5. For mash potato – boil water and pop in chopped potatoes, how do you know when the potato is cooked when you run a knife through it. Drain the potatoes and add a nob of butter, olive oil and pinch of salt and pepper and grate some nutmeg. You can buy balls of nutmeg from any spice stores – they give a powerful taste and smell. A great kick to your mash potato. Mash it all up and pile it on top of the fish Bake it for 40 minutes in a oven on 200 degrees.

The fish taste fantastic cos it tasted like they’ve been steamed under the mash potatoes and the crispy mash potato adds some texture to the pie. Definitely worth trying it 🙂

Enjoy…

Comfort Food Recipe – Crumbed Barramundi

Published January 25, 2010 by Mary Jane

Ok, it’s time to move onto cooking fish. To be honest I’m not really a fish person – and I used to hate cooking fish cos it makes the whole kitchen stinky and also sometimes it gets burnt easily and flaky. So I’ve finally come across Barramundi fillets which are easy to cook and doesn’t get burnt or become flaky easily. Anyways, this dish is simple and a boost of omega oil cos fish is good for your body. I’ve served it with some broccoli and chips. 🙂

Here it is…

Crumbed Barramundi

Ingredients

1 x piece of barramundi fllet
2 table spoon of bread crumbs
1 egg
1 table spoon of plain flour
1 packet of frozen chips
1 small bunch of brocolli
2 x cloves of garlic

Instructions

1. first drizzle some olive oil onto the fish fillet, beat up the egg and mix the bread crumb and flour together. Now dip the fish fillet into the egg mixture both sides and dip into the bread crumb and flour mixture and pop it into the pan – medium heat. Fish cooks pretty quickly so about few minutes each side – until it’s golden brown – season with salt and pepper.

2. Pop the frozen chips into the oven to cook it. If you want to make your own fresh chips – simply boil the potatoes – until it’s semi cooked and cut them into strips – season with olive oil and salt & pepper and pop them into the oven. However, it’s quicker just getting frozen chips from the supermarket and cook it in the oven. Taste just as good.

3. heat up the pan with some oil and add minced garlic and chopped up the broccoli into small pieces and stir fry it until it’s cook, season with salt and pepper

And there you have it crumbed barramundi served with chips and broccoli 🙂
