Despite my best intentions I have not been great at finding sustainable fish to eat but I am planning on changing my ways! It’s quite hard though as I know we have a fish shop locally somewhere but I have never found it and am too guilty of always going to Waitrose which actually has really good fish. Imagine my joy when I saw both Dab and Pollock at the fish counter. I bought some Dab – for three people it cost the princely sum of £3.90 and I cannot tell you just how absolutely delicious it is. Coating it in seasoned flour, and then egg and lastly polenta (powder – or of course breadcrumbs) with lemon zest and finely chopped parsley, then fry in a little oil. I found organic rapeseed oil in Azda which was really good value. Or just butter and fresh herbs like tarragon, dill, and parsley, sea salt and freshly ground pepper and a good squirt of lemon juice. Dab is sweet and tender and a bit like plaice. So yummy! The recipe below is fantastic for any more boring white fish as it is really flavoursome. It works well with chicken too. The Marine Conservation has an excellent little pocket guide to download so you can really source your fish.
