Neven Maguire’s Pan-fried Hake with Lemon and Herb Butter Sauce

pan-fried-hake-with-lemon-and-herb-butter-sauce2

 Of course this recipe is great with just parsley but experiment with a combination of soft fragrant herbs sauce as parsley, chives, tarragon or chervil depending on what’s available.

Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 4 x 175g hake fillets, skin on and boned
  • 1 tablesp. olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 50g butter
  • ½ lemon, pips removed
  • 1 tablesp. chopped mixed herbs (parsley, chives and tarragon)

To Cook

Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan and add the seasoned hake fillets, skin side down. Cook for a couple of minutes until the skin is just beginning to crisp, then add little knobs of butter to the pan around each hake fillet and cook for another couple of minutes until the skin is crisp.

Turn the hake fillets over and cook for another 3-4 minutes until cooked through. This will depend on the thickness of the fillets. Transfer to warmed plates while you make the sauce.

Add the rest of the butter to the frying pan and allow it to gently melt over a moderate heat. When it has melted, add a squeeze of lemon juice and the herbs, swirling to combine. Season to taste. Spoon this sauce over the hake fillets and serve with steamed broccoli and some sautéed new potatoes.

Tips

Above all be careful not to overcook the fish.  To check, gently prod the thickest part of the fish with a small knife.  If it is cooked, the flesh will look opaque and the flakes will separate easily.  If it isn’t done yet, it will still have the translucent look for raw fish.

Other fish you could use: Whiting, haddock or trout fillets

Ulster Crab Risotto

Ulster Crab Risotto

Serves: 10

Ingredients

  • 2 large Portrush Brown Cock Crabs
  • 4 litres pre-prepared crab stock
  • 500g Lakeland Dairies Butter
  • 400ml Millac Dairy Whipping Cream
  • 1kg arborio rice
  • 8 banana shallots
  • 200g wild rocket
  • 300g Parmesan cheese (Parmigiano Regianno)
  • micro red amaryth cress and parsley to garnish
  • 4 red peppers
  • 50ml aged balsamic vinegar
  • 100ml olive oil

Method

In a large, flat-bottomed pan melt 250g of Lakeland Dairies Butter. Add the shallots and braise before stirring in the rice.

Pour in the crab stock, a little at a time, until the rice is half cooked. Remove from the heat.

Place 2 red peppers in the oven with a little olive oil, salt and pepper. When they have blistered all over, remove them from the oven, cool and deseed. Remove skins with a small prep knife and cut into thin strips (equal lengths).

Deseed the remaining 2 red peppers and blend before passing through a fine chinoix or muslin. Discarding the pulp, transfer the juice into a small pan, adding the balsamic vinegar and reduce to a thick consistency. Allow to cool, before whisking in olive oil to make a pepper dressing.

Purée the brown crab meat and pass through chinoix to remove any shell. Set aside.

Pick out the white crab meat, ensuring there are no pieces of shell remaining. Mix together with the brown meat.

Place the remaining 250g Lakeland Dairies Butter into a large pan and add the half-cooked rice mixture. When it is almost cooked, add the Millac Dairy Whipping Cream, Parmesan and crab meat and simmer gently.

Season to taste. Add the rocket and stir until soft.

Serve the risotto as 2 or 3 quenelles in the centre of a suitable bowl.

Arrange slices of red pepper around the risotto and drizzle the red pepper dressing on top before garnishing with the amaryth and parsley.

Goatsbridge Trout Taco with Baked Sweet Potato

Rainbow Trout Taco with Baked Sweet Potato

Serves 2

INGREDIENTS

300g Goatsbridge trout fillets (cut into bite size pieces)
100g flour
1 egg
100g bread crumbs
3 sweet potatoes
1 tsp paprika
salt & pepper
4 taco wraps
2 tbsp crème fraîche
1/2 avocado
Handful of small tomatoes
1 clove of garlic (minced)
1 tsp chopped coriander stalks
2 tbsp lemon juice
3 tbsp olive oil
few sprigs of coriander & chopped red chili (to garnish)

Goatsbridge Rainbow Trout Recipe

This week Ciara Daly from Getting Fed Up has come up with a tasty fish taco, baked sweet potato and fresh salad that might just lure you away from the pre-prepared frozen fish counter. Using freshly filleted Goatsbridge trout Ciara has made fish nuggets that are bound to delight children and adults alike. If you try this recipe at home we’d be delighted if you left a review here afterwards.

Method

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 220°C/ 430°F/ gas mark 7. Wash the sweet potatoes and chop them into wedges, keeping the skins on.

Step 2

Season with salt, pepper, paprika and a drizzle of oil before laying them out on a baking tray. Place the tray in the oven to cook for 30 – 40 minutes.

Step 3

To three separate dishes, add the flour, egg and breadcrumbs. Add a little salt to the flour, to help season the fish.

Step 4

Dip each of the fish pieces in the dishes containing the flour, followed by the egg and finally the breadcrumbs. Make sure to do it in that order as this will ensure the bread crumbs stick to the fish.

Step 5

Drizzle a little oil on another baking tray, add the fish nuggets and put the dish in the oven with the sweet potatoes. Turn the oven down to around 200°C/ 400°F/ gas mark 6.

Step 6

Leave to cook for 10 – 15 minutes depending on the size of your fish nuggets. Half way through cooking, turn the fish nuggets over so they will be golden brown all over.

Step 7

While the fish and sweet potatoes are cooking, you can begin preparing the fresh ingredients. Chop the tomatoes into halves or quarters, add them to a bowl followed by the garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, coriander stalks and a little salt and pepper. Slice the avocado and season with just a few drops of the lemon juice if there is any left over.

Step 8

Warm the wraps in the microwave for 30 seconds. When you’re ready to serve, spoon some of the crème fraîche on to the wraps. Arrange the little fish nuggets over the crème fraîche, add the tomatoes and a few avocado slices and garnish with some coriander leaf and chili. Finish it off with the baked potato fries and you’re ready to enjoy you meal!
