Eat Fish Week: Dragonfish

I will be on an island all week, and a bad conscience has been nagging all the time. Have so much stuff to blog about but so little time. So here you are: my folders give enough material for a whole fish week. You won’t find exact recipes for anything, just an idea of what I threw together. It is meant to inspire you. And if I find a begging comment about some real recipe when I come back, I might think about it!

dragonfish

One of our favorite fishes, this ugly baby has firm flesh with a nutty flavor, which we find best treated as little as possible. A hot oven and 30 minutes later, you will have heaven on your plate.

Are you ready for the ugliness?

dragonfish, filled and betted

Are you sure? ok:

ugly fish

I told you!

Filled with chopped parsley, sprinkled with salt and pepper, little bit of olive oil, bedded on orange slices. That’s it!

ugly or beautiful?

See you tomorrow!

see you!

  2. Really ugly fish but I bet it was tasting very good :)

  3. The pictures make it look good. I don’t know where I would find this fish where I live.

  4. Coffee and Vanilla, maleesha,
