Simple Recipe For All Whitefish

4.8.2012

Living in our boat is over for this summer and we are back home. However, during the following weeks I will still tell you boat life stories because so much happened during that five weeks on the boat.

Our family eats a lot of pike-perch because Henri fishes it a lot. Henri has also learned to make excellent food out of pike-perch – and also other fish species. This following recipe is one of our favourite ones. It`s simple and delicious and works for all whitefish.

Ingredients for 2 portion:

500 g pike-perch fillet (or other whitefish)

2 dl smetana (crème fraîche)

3-4 garlic cloves

One third of leek

Salt, black pepper, butter (amount depends on your taste)

  • Salt fish couple of hours before making the food.
  • Chop garlic and leek.
  • Melt some butter in a frying pan.
  • Fry garlic and leek about 1-2 minutes. Take them aside for a while.
  • Add some butter and put the fish fillets on the frying pan. Let them grill about 2-3 minutes each side (depending on the size).
  • Add garlic, leek and smetana and let food stew for about 5-7 minutes.
  • Serve e.g with salad, potatoes or fried vegetables.
