2 fillets of fish per person
1 small tin of crab meat
crème fraîche 1/2 small pot
salt and pepper
white wine 1glass
I love fish dishes because they are so healthy and quick to prepare that I can be slapdash with a clear conscience. Unlike baking, it is not about quantities but proportions when preparing a savoury dish. Ask your fishmonger to fillet the fish for you: you can choose any white and firm fleshed fish but Plaice is a nice tasty choice and it is inexpensive.
Mix the crab meat with a spoonfull of cream and season with salt and pepper. Put a big spoonful inside each fillet and roll on itself. Place each roll next to each other in an earthenware dish. Mix some cream with the white wine and pour over the fish. Put in the oven for 10 min at 180 degree.
Eat with a crunchy salad. Choose the best quality crab meat you can – fresh, if you are by the seaside! The quality of each ingredient is paramount in such a simple dish. You can’t go wrong with this is you stick to that rule!
