Kabeljauw and Vegetables

Now that we are eating ever so healthy I am always looking for new ideas and trying new things to cook.

I don't know if I should admit this, or drop my head in shame, but I have not actually cooked a fillet of fish before. Of course I have popped numerous fish fingers in the oven, and I am quite adepts at ordering fish in restaurants every now and again.

Make it myself? Nope. I've seen too many episodes of Masterchef to know that it is a cardinal sin to overcook fish. Plainly stated, I was scared.

But eventually I had to be brave.
I bought some beautiful cod (kabeljauw) fillets and decided that I shall overcome my fear of fish.

So, into a hot pan with one tablespoon of croma (it's a kind of oil that helps with browning of meat). I cooked the fish fillets for exactly 4 minutes on the one side, then I flipped them over for another 3 minutes and then I turned off the heat, leaving the fish to rest for a couple of minutes before I served it.

I served it with some sauteed vegetables - cauliflower, fennel, mushrooms and courgette cooked with herbs and spices and a dash of cumin for colour. Then I snipped some garlic chives over the fish and dinner was served.

It was a great success. The fish was soft and delicious.
Definitely on the menu again soon!
