A re cipe I came up with when faced with a glut of fish we'd caught and some local green prawns. We ate this over rice.
- 600 g cod fish fillets
- 1⁄4 cup flour
- salt and pepper
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 500 g green prawns, peeled
- 4 teaspoons cajun seasoning (or to taste)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
- 1 tablespoon oil
- 1 onion, thinly sliced diagonally
- 2 garlic cloves, crushed
- 1⁄2 cup finely sliced green bell pepper
- 1⁄2 cup finely sliced red bell pepper
- 300 ml light cream
- 1⁄2 lemon, juice of
- Toss the cod in flour seasoned with salt and pepper.
- Heat the 2 tablespoons of oil in a frying pan and cook cod for about 2 minutes each side; you want it almost cooked but not completely.
- Remove the fish, drain on kitchen paper, and wipe out the pan.
- Cut or break the almost cooked fish into chunks about 2 inches square.
- Toss the peeled prawns in the Cajun seasoning and black pepper.
- Heat the 1 tablespoon of oil.
- Add the onion slices and cook for about 5 minutes or until softened.
- Add the garlic and cook a minute or two more.
- Add the red and green capsicum strips and cook for about two minutes.
- Now add the prawns and cook for a minute or two each side (until they turn pink); add the cream and lemon juice and bring to the boil.
- Return the fish to the pan and reduce the heat to simmer for another couple of minutes to heat and finish cooking the fish through. Serve over steamed rice.
