Warm Weather Goodness

For some reason or another, warm weather makes me think of fish. Not the act of fishing nor the childrens card game, but specifically eating fish.

So when I happened across some lovely looking South Australian King George Whiting at the markets on the weekend, I couldn’t resist. Beautifully plump, clean skinned with a slightly translucent flesh, the whiting was as appealing as a breath of fresh sea air.

With the fish in the bag it was onto accompaniments. Perhaps a salsa of tomato, Spanish and spring onions, fresh chilli and squeeze of lemon? Hand-cut chips and tartare? No, a simple salad of baby asparagus, Italian flat beans and olive oil.

Which leaves me with the whiting. Fresh breadcrumbs, parmesan, black pepper and a little salt forms the perfect crumb, dust of flour, into a cooling egg bath, crumbed then slipped into the pan for a quick fry. A minute either side, then it’s onto the plate with a drizzle of olive oil and a slice of lemon. Perfect!

  1. ha! I agree. I just grilled a rainbow trout on the BBQ the other day. So succulent and full of flavour from the tomato, coriander, lime, pomegranate and chili.

  2. breaded fish with a lovely fresh salad wonderful. Great blog and wonderful recipe ideas. I teach on a few cooking Holidays around the world and I will definitely be recommending this blog to my students.
