Fish course ideas! Help!

Discussion in 'Personal' started by tassiegirl, Dec 29, 2010.

  1. I know this could be on cookery, but there is more traffic here.
    I have been asked to bring a fish course type dish for a NYE bash. There are 25 people coming and there are 5 of us who have been asked to bring fish course type food.
    As a not very big fish eater (think tuna and cod/hake), please can I have some ideas?
    I do have time to cook, but only tomorrow morning to shop!
    Maybe a tuna pasta bake? Tuna steaks (though that would be expensive!)
  2. How about a fish pie? Fish cakes (or crab cakes) with a sauce or dip? Some easy recipes from Jamie Oliver (love him or hate him!):

    Fry some sliced onions in olive oil, add chopped garlic
    add a tin of chopped tomatoes and a good splash of red wine and cook down for 10 minutes or so until nice and gloopy (technical term)
    meanwhile cut some salmon/cod/whatever fillets into biggish cubes, coat with flour (shaking in a large freezer bag or lidded Tupperware works well).
    In a separate frying pan fry the floured fish on a high heat until brown and crispy on teh edges and then tip into the tomato mixture and mix wgently (so as not to break up the fish)
    This reheats well but is best made on the day rather than left overnight

    How about a white fish (cheaper than tuna) en escabeche?
    I have a recipe: I'll look it out for you if the idea appeals.

    Mini fishcakes and sweet chilli dipping sauce?
  6. Smoked salmon blinis (mini pancakes).
    1. Buy blinis from fish /chiller section of Morrisons, tesco or Waitrose.
    2. Add a blob of creme fraiche to each blini.
    3. Add small piece of smoked salmon.
    4. Grind on black pepper.
    Serve with lemon wedges to squeeze on.
    I guess you could also do this on crackers/ use mackerel/ smoked trout etc.They look very nice as a canape.
    Hope it's not too informal?

    small fillets of salmon (or any nice fish).
    Spread with pesto. Top with parmesan.
  9. Brilliant ideas, thanks! Leaning towards the fish cakes. It isn't meant to be a starter from what I can gather as other people have been assigned that area. Mine specifically says fish course. But then there are 5 of us feeding 25, so it isn't too bad.
