    • My Sister's fish rubs

      We often use Dukkah, either hazelnut or almond but any will do. If you don’t have any then make your own.

      In a mortar and pestle crush almond flakes, sesame seeds, granulated garlic, rock salt, some black and white pepper, and spices to your liking. Dukkah being middle eastern usually has cumin, coriander, and a

      little dried chilli or piri piri.Add a few extra sesame seeds at the end so they remain whole. Rinse and dry fish then rub over with olive oil and coat liberally with dukkah.

      Alternatively if you want to make a crusty skin side then add a little finely chopped onion to the mix to help it stay together and press it firmly onto the skin side. Don’t have pan too hot to start as the sesame seed

      will cook quickly and become a bit bitter if they burn a bit .

      Cook “coating” side down first till light golden brown and crusty, turn over, turn down heat, and allow to cook through. Serve with a squeeze of lime or lemon and garnish with finely chopped dill or parsley.

      Hmm sounds ok but we are having chicken so might have to vary a bit but still can use to coat chicken pieces before putting in the oven. I spray them with olive oil spray to help the skin to go crispy.

      Alternative, use b.b.q or oven, finely chop onion, tomato, chilli, ginger, dill, parsley or basil, squeeze of lime or lemon and a good drizzle of olive oil. Slice diagonally into skin side of fish fillet, rub some of the

      mix into the cuts then smother the rest across the fish. Smear some butter and oil mix onto a large piece of heavy duty foil, or use 2 layers if thin foil. Slice some thickish slices of onion and layer onto foil, place the

      fish onto the onion layer, place a few rings of lemon on top of fish season salt and pepper, then fold foil into a parcel by folding edges together along the top of fish, leave it loose so foil doesn’t touch fish. Seal ends well too. Cook either in moderate oven or on the BBQ. As it cooks the juices form its own sauce. Not too shabby!!!.

      Wounds good.
