with carrot and bell pepper

The tartness of lemon is a classic flavour profile to pair with fish. In this recipe, lemon zest is mixed with the butter that bastes the hake for a rich and zesty finish.

Instructions

Make the Rice
1
  • Pour 300ml cold salted water (double for 4p) into a medium pot with a tight-fitting lid.
  • Stir in the rice, muscat and turmeric and bring to the boil.
  • Once boiling, lower heat to medium, cover and cook for 10 mins.
  • Remove from the heat and keep covered for 10 mins or until ready to serve (the rice will continue to cook in its own steam).
Get Prepped
2
  • Halve the pepper and discard the core and seeds. Slice into thin strips, then chop into roughly 1cm pieces. 
  • Halve, peel and chop the onion into small pieces.
  • Trim the carrot and quarter lengthways. Chop into small pieces. (no need to peel).
  • Zest and halve the lemon.
  • Pat the hake dry with kitchen paper. Season with salt and pepper.
Soften the Veg
3
  • Place a pan over high heat (without oil).
  • When hot, fry the carrot, onion and pepper until softened, 6-8 mins.
  • Once cooked, season with salt, pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice.
  • Add the veg to the pot of rice.
  • Use a fork to mix it all together, fluffing up the rice as you go. Cover to keep warm.
Fry the Hake
4
  • Return the pan to medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil
  • Once hot, lay the fish into the pan and cook for 4-5 mins. Turn over and cook on the other side for a further 3-4 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw fish. Fish is cooked when opaque in the centre.
  • With 1 min left to cook, add 2 tbsp butter (double for 4p), thyme and lemon zest to the pan.
  • Once melted, use a spoon to baste the fish with the lemony butter.
Make the Drizzle
5
  • Loosen the aioli with a squeeze of lemon juice.
  • Taste and add more if desired, you want the aioli to be a drizzling consistency.
Finish and Serve
6
  • Divide the savoury golden rice between plates or bowls.
  • Top with the pan-fried hake, pouring over any butter remaining in the pan. 
  • Finish with a drizzle of the lemon aioli.
