Pickled Fish Recipes

Ingredients :

2 lb white fish fillets

4 tbsp freshly squeezed lime or lemon juice

1.25 cups olive or corn oil

2 whole cloves

6 peppercorns

2 garlic cloves

1/2 tsp ground cumin

1/2 tsp dried oregano

2 bay leaves

1 drained canned jalapeno chili, seeded, and cut into strips

1 onion, thinly sliced

1 cup white wine vinegar

1 cup olive or corn oil


For the garnish:

lettuce leaves

green olives

Method :

Cut the fish fillets into eight pieces and arrange them in a single layer in a shallow dish. Drizzle with the lime or lemon juice. Cover and marinate for 15 minutes, turning the fillets once.

Lift out the fillets with a fish slice, pat them dry with kitchen paper and season with salt. Heat 4 tbsp of the oil in a frying pan and sauté the fish until lightly golden brown. Transfer to a platter and set aside. Combine the cloves, peppercorns, garlic, cumin, oregano, bay leaves, chili and vinegar in a pan. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 3-4 minutes.

Add the remaining oil, and bring to a simmer. Pour over the fish. Cool, cover and chill for 24 hours. To serve, lift out the fillets with a fish slice and arrange on a serving dish. Garnish with lettuce and olives.

Serves 4

To make the dish special, add an elaborate garnish of radishes, capers and chili strips.
