On the menu, in Esther and Omega’s last class for the year 2011 was “Fish Baked in White Wine”, an excellent meal to ring in the new year.
- 10 slices of fish (bone or boneless)
- 1 cup white wine
- 1pkt Blue band or Anchor butter (melted)
- 5 tbsp flour
- 10 local seasoning peppers (coarsely chopped)
- 5 Strands chives or spring onions (chopped)
- 1 Lg Onion (coarsely chopped)
- 4 clove of garlic (chopped)
- 1 cup cooking cream
- Salt & pepper
Marlin was the fish used in the class, but other types can be used. Just be sure to get rid of as much water as you can if using a type like sword fish. There is no need to grease your baking sheet as liquid is produced from the butter and wine.
Season fish slices, place on baking sheet or dish. Sprinkle chopped onions, chives, seasoning peppers & garlic over fish. Pour the wine and melted butter over the fish slices, ensuring that each piece is covered to ensure consistency in flavor. Sprinkle with flour. Bake for 5-10 mins. Remove from oven, drain fish water from baking sheet or dish. Place in a separate pot then add cream, salt & pepper to taste. If sauce is too thin add a little corn starch or flour to thicken.
Serve with rice or potatoes.
All the best in the new year from Esther and Omega. Sometime in January they will be taking the cooking class on the road. They aren’t saying exactly when so come to all classes to make sure you don’t miss it. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
