Fish Galore Ltd is a wholesale fish and seafood supplier based in Central Hove. They are committed to environmental factors and are discerning about the provenance of everything they sell. I was happy to find a source with integrity for locally caught fresh fish and seafood, which is then expertly prepared by their team. It seems that it is “dealing” with fish which puts so many people off cooking it at home. A good fish monger will do all the cleaning, gutting, de-scaling and filleting for you.
The most important thing to remember when cooking fish is that the flesh is delicate. Too much cooking will ruin the fish, giving it a chewy texture. You should be looking for a slight rawness next to the bone as it is removed from the heat. Fish continues cooking while it is being served, ensuring the meat remains tender when it reaches the table. These next recipes are quick and easy to prepare and taste delicious! For a perfectly paired wine for both dishes, try the Slovenian Krizno Sauvignon Blanc.
Salmon with a Dill and Lemon Crust
4 Salmon fillets, each weighing 100g-150g
25g dill, roughly chopped
zest of 1 lemon
large clove of garlic, crushed
6 tbsp olive oil
Mix all ingredients together to form a paste. Spread the herb paste evenly over the surface of each fillet. Leave to marinate for at least two hours. Heat the grill and place the fillets on a metal tray. Place under the grill for about 4-5 minutes, depending on the size and thickness of each fillet. The dill crust should be slightly browned and the flesh soft and tender
Marinated Tuna Steaks
4 tuna steaks, each weighing 150g
8 tbsp vegetable or sunflower oil
1 tbsp sesame oil
6 tbsp light soy sauce
2cm chunk of fresh ginger, either grated or finely chopped
handful of fresh coriander, roughly chopped
Mix all the marinade ingredients together in a shallow oven dish. Place the steaks in the marinade , turning well to ensure they get a good covering. Put some foil over the dish and leave overnight or for a minimum of four hours. Heat up a ridged grill pan until good and hot (if you don’t have one, use the grill instead). Remove the steaks with a slotted spoon and grill in the pan for 2-3 mins on each side. Serve immediately.
