Last week’s quick and easy roast fish dinner seemed to go down quite well with our readers. So much so that we thought we would post another quick fish recipe for you to try. This one comes from one of The Stone Grill waiting team who cooks this for their family. It isn’t something we would serve here but it is definitely something we will try at home!
This Italian-inspired dish takes less than twenty minutes from start to finish. It is tasty, nutritious, colourful and looks great on a plate. Considering it can be prepared in such a short time, there is no reason not to try it.
2 slices of prosciutto, cut in half
3 tbsp. olive oil
2 red peppers, thinly sliced
2 red onions, thinly sliced
2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
280g jar artichoke hearts, drained
75g black olives
½ tsp chilli paste or powder
Splash of white wine
4 fish fillets
Fry the prosciutto in some of the olive oil on a medium-high heat until crispy. Remove the prosciutto, add a little more oil and fry the onion, peppers and garlic over a lower heat. Cook gently and stir occasionally until softened. Add the artichoke hearts, olives, chilli and the wine and cook together for a couple of minutes.
Lay the fish on top of the other ingredients in the pan, season to taste and cover. Cook for 5 or 6 minutes, until the fish is just cooked through. Crumble the prosciutto and spread over the dish and serve with some fresh ciabatta.
See? Said it was easy!
Fish is such a versatile ingredient that it deserves to be eaten more. There is more to it than covering it in batter and serving it with chips. As long as the fish comes from sustainable sources and you buy fresh wherever you can, fish is a fantastic source of protein and nutrients. Frozen fish works well too if time is of the essence.
