Couple of days ago, I had a chat with a friend of ours that really likes my cheesecake, any of the versions. This time we chat not about cheesecake but about eating lighter or less red meat.
So, I had this recipe for days now hanging on my clipboard. The recipe is extracted from Waitrose newspaper, and sounds like this:
- 2 whole sea bream, cleaned, scaled, gutted and slash 3 times on each side
- 1 lemon
- 6-8 sprigs lemon thyme
- 400g can butter beans, drained and rinsed
- 1 tbsp capers in brine, rinsed and drained
- 2 cloves garlic, sliced
- 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
- 1 1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 200g broccoli, trimmed
Oven time 20 min @ 180 Celsius
When I bought the fish, I asked the fishmonger to do the dirty work for me to clean up the fish – scaled and gutted. At home, I just give it a good wash and got it ready to follow the instructions.
Rather to copy-paste the instruction, please see my way (the prep of the broccoli is missing but – a quick wash and a toss in the oil + 10min in the oven) :
Do not forget Salt and Pepper! all way along
As you can see the meal went to the bones, and I am not such a big fun of fish because of the bones, and we still remember the dish.
Sometimes there is leftovers: 1 fish and some side in my case 🙂
How I fixed this for a dish for 2:
- 1 cooked fish, divided in 2
- whatever side there is, divided in 2
- mash potatoes
- salad, green salad leaves
There you go a new meal – potato with potato 😀
