The weekend just gone my other half went on a fish mission with our neighbour and came home with 3 delicious snapper .. one a 10pound beauty!
HELLO fresh fish!
For those of you not in NZ this is what a snapper looks like:
They are TASTY .. and at the moment around $38 per kg! So we had a good $100 worth of the freshest fish + a good recreation time for hubster! Woop woop!
We had fish for lunch Sat, dinner Sat AND dinner Sunday YUM YUM!
ON TOP of this excellence, my other half is also a GREAT cook (he did think about being a chef at one stage, and could totally be one if he wanted!).
I never used to love fish much. Mum, bless her heart, used to cook it and it kinda ruined the experience seeing as I would often find a bone, and that would be the enjoyment OVER. Every subsequent mouthful being a cringe waiting for the next bone to appear!
I have now learnt that with good filleting and good cooking fresh fish can taste AMAAZING!
Here is a look at fish 3 ways:
LUNCH: Pan fried in butter with herbs and spices
DINNER SATURDAY: Pan fried in butter with a light crust of flour and smoked paprika with chips
DINNER SUNDAY: Oven roasted with tomatoes, capsicums, onion and flavourings on couscous
OH MY DELICIOUS. I am honestly not sick of the fish and could happily eat it AGAIN today - alas, we have run out.
Time to go fishing again! :-)
