We finally had some good weather (not windy that is!) the other day, so I took the opportunity to put the boat in the water. My plan was to try and catch a shark but the engine was playing up so I stayed inshore – probably a good thing considering I was by myself.
Anyway the fishing I did have was excellent. Flathead, whiting, salmon and calamari were coming in thick and fast – so fast I was home by lunchtime. Because I had a few different species I decided to do a bit of a platter/mixed grill for tea.
4 Tbs Pine Nuts
1/2 Clove of Garlic
About 1 cup Parsley
3 Tbs Dill
3 Tbs Tarragon
2 Tbs Capers
1/4 Preserved of a Lemon (Peel)
1 Anchovy (Optional)
1 Tbs Dijion Mustard
2 Tbs Spring Onions
1/4 Cup White Vinagar
2/3 Cup Olive Oil (Approx.)
Salt to taste
Throw everything in the food processor minus the oil and while blitzing, slowly add the oil. You want this quit runny because you kind of use it as a sauce. So add more vinegar and oil if required. Also if the tarragon is a bit over powering add more parsley.
For the Fish:
Flathead: Flour, egg and bread crumbed. Also picked some in white vinegar, dill salt and pepper and a pinch of sugar.
Whiting: Just cooked whole under a really hot grill.
Calamari: Dusted in rice flour and salt and white pepper. Also did some butter and garlic.
