Fish au Gratin

I really love this recipe, so many things going all which all result in some amazing flavours.

You will start off my poaching your fish in milk. Once the fish is cooked you will drain the liquid and make a roux of butter & flour and slowly mix back in your warm milk mixture. This will thicken everything up into a sauce and by adding back the cooked fish, cream, wine, gruyere cheese & mustard you will give that sauce a real kick of flavour. Finish off under a hot grill with breadcrumbs & gruyere on top.

Pure Genius!

The moment of truth has arrived.......

The time has come to pull the first of my carrots...at the start of the Summer I really had no clue what I was doing. I have definitely enjoyed the whole experience of getting to understand how this whole gardening lark works.

Anyhow lets see how they turned out

Baked Tilapia

This recipe is incredibly simple. I was originally looking for a white fish recipe for on the BBQ but the weather did not oblige so I baked in the oven instead

Melted butter with lemon is brushed over your fish and finely chopped herbs are added…I used coriander from the garden. The cooked in a pre-heated 180C oven for aprox 10 minutes. Tonight I served with my cous cous salad but it will go with almost anything.
