white fish fillets topped with a creamy mussel, prawn mix.
- olive oil
- 4 firm white fish fillets (I used cod but any white fish is fine,sea bass, orange roughy, hake etc.. Just note there are two ca)
- 125 g mussels, meat
- 120 g peeled cooked prawns
- 3 garlic cloves, crushed
- 4 green onions
- 1 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon fish stock, powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vegetable stock powder
- 2 teaspoons cornflour
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1⁄2 cup dry white wine
- 135 ml sour cream
- 1⁄2 cup cream
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- 1 tablespoon gruyere cheese
- 1 tablespoon parmesan cheese
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dill
- 1 medium carrot, chopped
- 100 g green beans, trimmed
- Note make the sauce first and leave on heat as the fish fillets cooking time are very quick.
- In a fry pan heat a little oil and cook garlic slightly, you don't want to burn it, add the green onion and cook for about 30 seconds to 1 minute.
- Boil, steam or microwave carrots and beans until tender, set to one side.
- Heat milk in pan, add both the stocks. Blend cornflour with a little water and add half the mixture stir until sauce thickens slightly.
- Add sour cream, lemon juice, white wine, cream and mustard stir until thoroughly.
- Add cheeses and stir until melted, add garlic onion mixture and dill. If the consistency of the sauce is not to runny like a broth, don't add the remaining cornflour. If it needs to be thickened up a little more to make it more of a sauce, this is where you add remaining cornflour. I add a little at a time until desired consistency. ( I don't know why but sometimes I need all of the cornflour and other times what I add in the beginning is enough.).
- Add the carrots, beans, mussel meat, and prawns. Leave over low heat while you cook the fish, stir sauce occasionally.
- Pour a little oil in a pan and heat. Pat fish on both sides lightly with flour, place fillet in pan (pan should be hot enough that fish sizzles when added, turn heat down to a medium high heat immediately) Cook, without moving fish, until edges of fillets are opaque and bottoms are golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes.
- Turn the heat up on the sauce, so it is nice and hot when served. Turn fish over and cook again without moving fish, 3-4 minutes. This is for thick fillets, for thin it will only be 2-3 minutes a side.
- To serve place a mound of mash potato in a large bowl, place fillet on top and pour sauce over.
