  • Fishwife Recipes

    Crispy Skinned Fish

    The Fishwife is here to share a delicious recipe. You will need:

    • 2 Greenfish Fish Fillets (for this recipe I used Silver Fish)
    • 1 Block of Butter (500g)
    • Fine Table Salt
    • 1 tsp Garlic
    • handful of Parsley

    Preparation:

    1. TO MAKE THE CLARIFIED BUTTER: place your butter in a glass jug or bowl and leave in a sunny spot to melt on its own.
    2. Once the butter has melted it will separate, the clear liquid on the top is your clarified butter. Either scoop this clear liquid butter out with a spoon or syringe or pour through a muslin cloth. I only had a fine sieve, so I used this and it worked out ok. Put in a separate dish to use for this recipe and keep the leftovers in the fridge as it's great to have some readily available for future use.
    3. PREPARING & FRYING YOUR FISH: Place your filleted, pin boned and scaled fillets flat on a board or plate. (You can use our recipes on how to fillet and scale fish if your fish fillets still have these attached).
    4. Score your fillets 1mm deep from the back to tummy of the fish (refer to pictures in this recipe which display the correct direction to score)
    5. Dry your fillets with paper towel on both sides until all the moisture has been removed.
    6. Five minutes before frying, season on both sides with fine table salt, this will allow any further moisture to be absorbed.
    7. Heat your pan to a medium high heat and add a generous amount of clarified butter.
    8. Place your fillets in the pan skin side down and use a plate to weight them down to avoid them from curling upwards.
    9. Cook the fillets until they are about 80% cooked through.
    10. Turn the fillets over and cook for the remaining 20% to finish off.
    11. Brush with your garlic and parsley butter before serving.
    12. TO MAKE THE GARLIC AND PARSLEY BUTTER: In a small pot on the stove add 1/3 cup of Clarified Butter, 1 teaspoon of Garlic and your handful of chopped Parsley.
    13. Melt together on a medium heat ensuring that the pot doesn't get too hot as cooking at too high a heat will kill off your delicious garlic flavours.

          Anything Fresher is still in the Sea !!!

          I ordered Silver Fish and Kabeljou at 11h00 and received delivery at 13h20. Very clinically packaged with ice pack and expertly delivered. The fish was really fresh and cut to my specification. The flavor of fresh fish is just so awesome and we were priveleged to experience such from Greenfish. Please keep the standard !

          Absolutely AMAZING!

          For years we have been trying to buy high quality fish. We decided to give GreenFish a try. Absolutely speechless. Blown away! Placed the order around 09h00 and received at my door around 4hrs later. If that was not good enough, the packaging and quality of the fish was top top class! We will definitely be ordering more. Super super super!

          We loved the fish. It would maybe be nice to have the option of receiving it already filleted. Delicious and fresh as always.

          Silver fish

          It was great. We literally only added salt and pepper and put it on the the grill. Came off 20 minutes later, drizzled some lemon juice on it and it was ready to be consumed. We made 4 fish and there was nothing left. Will definately get it again.

          Beautiful tasting fresh fish on the braai.

          We bought the two silver fish pack which came vacuum packed in an insulated box with ice packs, so very well packaged and protected. Froze one fish and put one whole on the braai high above the coals. Just salted the outside, some onion, salt lemon and thyme in the fish cavity before braaiing and what a lovely great tasting fresh fish. Never had silver fish before but what a great buy as its got a great taste.

          The Silvers were absolutely pristine. I was so impressed with their presentation in well insulated box the ice packs and vacuum pack to avoid leakage. I would definitely recommend Green Fish and use again
