This recipe came from the'Sydney Morning Herald' and is wonderful. If you don't have cod, any firm fleshed white fish would be just as good. Do try it.
- 100 g fresh breadcrumbs
- 3 tablespoons finely chopped sage
- 4 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
- 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- sea salt
- 2 free range eggs
- 1 free range egg yolk
- 4 (100 g) pieces blue-eye cod fillet (or any firm white-fleshed fish)
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1⁄2 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 bunch baby rocket (or rocket)
- 4 lemon wedges, for serving
- Preheat the oven to 190 degrees C.
- Place the breadcrumbs, sage, parsley, parmesan and mustard in food processor and whiz until well combined.
- Transfer to a bowl and season to taste.
- Whisk the eggs and yolk and slowly pour in enough to form a slightly moist dough.
- Pat a half centimetre thick crust on the top of each piece of fish and place on a greased tray.
- Bake in the oven for about 10 minutes or until just cooked through.
- Meanwhile whisk the olive oil and lemon juice together and toss with the rocket.
- Serve the fish on starter plates with a small mound of rocket and a lemon wedge.
- With a glass of chardonnay.
Nice! Is there any better fish than Blue-Eye?? But I didn't have fresh breadcrumbs and herbs, so substituted 80 g dried breadcrumbs with 20 ml milk and 10 ml EV olive oil, 1 dessertspoon dried sage, 1 tablespoon dried parsley. It worked fine and there was no need to use a processor.
We thought this was a fabulous way to prepare fish. I used cod fillets, and cut down on the sage a little as well.It had an awesome presentation,it looked so impressive. Fast, and easy to follow, a real winner! Thanks for sharing!
This was quick and easy to make, and tasted really good. We reduced the sage to 6 leaves as I find it ovean overpowering herb if you use too much and only needed the two eggs. The crust kept the fish (we used ling) very moist. I served it with cos lettuce, as I don't like rocket.
