  • 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.

          Amazingly fresh and packaged well

          The fish arrived neatly packed and vacuum sealed. It was amazingly fresh. Although I requested to have it cut into pieces with the bone intact, it came filleted. Nevertheless I will try and give clearer instructions the next time. I made a fish curry nevertheless (which I why I wanted bone intact as it keeps the fish from falling apart). I used the fillets which still turned out beautiful as it was very fresh. Will definitely buy again, but will emphasize how I need it prepared.

          Silverfish

          The first time we ever tried this fish, amazing is all I can say. Ordered filleted and whole fish so had the best of both. Our fish was delivered before I even go the email that my fish was sent. Awesome service, thank you, Ryan. The only thing, please could you link or provide basic recipe ideas for the fish on your site or package. Having never had this fish before, I battled to find ideas on the internet until one site in particular. Thank you for two outstanding meals and your service. Regards, Natasha.

          Excellent service and product

          Been dying for some fresh fish that isn’t the usual frozen shop stuff. The silverfish was ordered in the afternoon and was delivered with a smile and a laugh later in the afternoon. Even in my neck of the woods. I would highly recommend and I’m definitely going to be using them again!
