On our recent trip to Costco, we found a good deal on fish! It’s $4 a kilo and sold in a 3kg box! (:
I know it seems a little crazy haha. But you see, we try to maximise our marketing money. So we tend to get the cheapest cut of meat which usually ends up being mince pork. haha So seafood is usually a rare treat! And since the mr needs to cut weight before his competition this Saturday, fish was a really good idea for our meals this week.
So one of the first things I decided to try was to do my own version of fish roulade! But just the simplest of roulades. haha Not sure if it should even be called that. I was trying to make it as healthy as possible. But I couldn’t resist putting a small slice of bacon, to add more flavour. Oops. haha
The subtle flavour of the fish, with the richness of the bacon and the texture of the crispy-ness of the fish was just perfect. Everything just went well with a side of salad and bread sticks covered with homemade eggplant dip! (:
healthy (most of it is! haha) and quick to cook ! You can have it from the oven to your plate in 20 mins ! Give it a try, and gain the goodness of eating fish too!
Fish Roulade (Makes 2)
2 slices of basa fillets
2 slices of streaky bacon
3 tbs bread crumbs
2 tbs dried herbs
2 tbs parmesan
1 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp black pepper
2 small cubes of chilled butter
Salad, to serve
Avocado, slices (optional)
1. Mix the bread crumbs, herbs, parmesan, salt and pepper in a bowl and set a side.
2. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celcius. Place a slice of bacon on top of the fish fillet and roll it tight. Do the same for the other fish fillet.
3. Roll the fish in the bread crumbs mixture. Place it on a roasting rack and place a cube of butter on each roulade.
4. Bake the fish roulade for 20 mins. Slice it into half diagonally and serve with the salad.
A quick and easy meal is served! ENJOY! (:
