uninspiring looking fish and rice (delicious)
The fish I used was actually dab - but could have been any white fish in cajun(ish) marinade. I mixed cajun seasoning, 1 clove crushed garlic, 1 tbsp olive oil and 1 tbsp yogurt ... chucked fish in and put in fridge for half an hour.
For the rice I chopped a small onion and 1 stick of celery, and fried in olive oil (quite hot, so that it caught a little bit, so got some caramelisation, but not much), added 1 cup of rice, and turned around so that every grain had a coating of oil/onion.... added veg stock, about a pint (just short of an inch above surface of rice), stirred in added 3 tbsp sweetcorn from a tin and a chopped red pepper from a jar. Lid on, brought to boil - stuffed in simmering oven in Aga for about 20 mins (on hob, low
simmer for about 14 mins, if your oven is on... lowish oven for 20 mins +... in a microwave, about 6 mins)...
So, fish marinading, rice nearly done ... fry/grill fish in olive oil... make sure the oil is hot - or really hot grill.
Serve as glamorously as you can manage, with lemon.
Was very tasty.
