A Brief History of Simple Fish Recipes
Almost 160 years ago, in the 1860s, a wondrous culinary fusion occurred. Battered fish met potato chips. Fish and chips was born! But the history of fish and potato being baked together goes back further throughout history.
From fresh oysters eaten down at the docks to just-caught cod, haddock and pollock shipped straight to city markets across the world. Fish and seafood in general are a part of our heritage.
Let’s not forget the wide range of fishes available for us to turn into simple fish recipes! Simple sardines, fried in butter and garlic, served on toast. An old-fashioned breakfast treat.
Or perhaps your tastes are more inclined to more elaborate baked fish recipes? Try white halibut fillets baked in the oven with a simple lemon herb crust. That combination of soft, flaky fish with the crunch of well-seasoned breadcrumbs is divine.
How to Use Lurpak
Butter is often an essential component of fried and baked fish recipes. Even the simple fish recipes of a single fillet and boiled new potatoes wouldn’t be complete without that golden square of melting butter and a sprinkling of dill.
White sauces (and a generous glass of white wine) are the traditional accompaniment for a fish dish. If you’re in a rush but still want to cook up a delicious fish dinner for yourself and your family, simply melt butter in a pan (salted or unsalted, depending on your tastes) and add lemon juice, lemon zest, dill, tarragon, parsley or any other fresh herbs you have around. A simple butter sauce livens up any white fish!
