Aditi and Fish
K caught a fish almost as big as Aditi

Lemon Garlic Fish

The next time, the husband went fishing with his brother. His brother, by the way, goes almost every day during the fishing season, and managed to fill his freezer full, and give every one he knows some fish too. Its my favourite part of being back in Canada in the summer (along with being with my in-laws, relaxing in the back garden and going to the lake). Sadly, I only had two weeks this year, but what wonderful weeks they were. It was hotter than in India, and we spent almost all our time outside getting a tan [or in my case, topping up the naturally existing one :-)]!

Lemon Garlic Fish1


Another easy recipe, adapted from Aldo Zilli's 'Fish Cook'.

Depending on how much fish you have, increase/ reduce the quantity of the marinade accordingly. This marinade is enough for a whole salmon.

50 ml olive oil
50 ml lemon juice
5 garlic cloves (crushed or Microplaned into a paste)
A couple big handfuls of snipped chives (replace with spring onions, finely chopped)
Seasoning to taste

Whisk together the marinade. Let rest for an hour or so, then re-adjust the seasoning. Marianate the fish in this for at least an hour, if not longer (I do it for about 3 - 4 hours). The lemon juice will start cooking the fish as well. Barbeque or roast for between 10 - 25 minutes, until the flesh flakes easily. Serve with sliced and fried Granny Smith apples and roasted potatoes.
