Fish in a Blanket – Lemon Sole in Pastry
One for the ladies today. My ladies that is. A lovely light lunch. Quite lovely to look at I think. Very healthy and all from the fridge and freezer so absolutely Bill Wallace Friendly. This fish comes from Australia and is a beauty of some Lemon Sole from our Partners and BFF’s at Orca Marketing. Have not had my hands on a Lemon Sole since living in the UK. It’s a delicate fish, so I thought I would protect it in some pastry. And that is as simple as a recipe invention is sometimes, and how I came up with ChillaxBBQ Stay@Home Recipes #37 – Lemon Sole in Pastry.You will need the following for 2 people serving;
- 2 Lemon Sole fillets – about 250g
- 1 fresh lemon, sliced thinly and de-pipped
- 4 sprigs of fresh Thyme
- 1 sheet of frozen short-crust pastry
- Black truffle Oil – or equivalent – mine is in a spray can
- Sea salt & cracked black pepper
- Rinse the fish fillets clean water and pat them dry with some kitchen towel
- Season with sea salt & cracked black pepper on both sides
- Spray with the black truffle oil on both sides
- Lay down the pastry sheet and wait for it to soften as it thaws
- Pop the fish fillets on top of each other in the middle of the pastry sheet
- Lay half the lemon slices on top of the fish and 3 sprigs of Thyme
- Fold the pastry up over the fish and seal it gently with your fingers into a parcel
- Spray the outside of the pastry with truffle oil and lay that down on some foil in a baking tray
- Pop that in the oven for 15-20 minutes at 190 until the pastry is nicely browned
- That’s it folks – it doesn’t get much easier than that right?
- Take it carefully off the baking tray and serve on a platter with the remaining lemon and Thyme – it’s a Chef thing;
- Slice this as per the photo and get it. on a plate for eating.
