However, today we had a fish dish that is fairly simple and because it is finished in the oven, the kitchen can be cleaned up as it's cooking.
Fish with Chilli15g butter
2 onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 chilli pepper, very finely chopped
1 kg fish fillets, defrosted if frozen
1-2 large carrots, peeled, diced and lightly steamed
1-2 courgettes, diced (peeled if prefered) and lightly steamed
115g fresh or frozen peas, lightly steamed
- Preheat the oven to 180C/350F.
- Melt the butter and saute the onions until transparent. Add the garlic, cumin seeds and chilli pepper and saute briefly. Remove from heat.
- Cut the fish fillets into cubes and mix with the onion mixure in an ovenproof dish.
- Arrange little mounds of carrrots, courgettes and peas around the dish, add 2 tbsp water, dot with butter and bake in the oven for 20 minutes, until the fish is cooked and everything is piping hot.
