Fried turbot or brill with root vegetables
Fried turbot or brill with root vegetables

Procedure without liability: Clean and fillet the fish. You may like to let the skin sit on. Or get the fisherman to do it; you catch no turbot or brill! Or do you? Start with the root vegetables, cleaning them and cut them into slices. Onions and garlic peeled and cut into slices. Add onion, garlic and all root fruits in a baking dish lightly greased with butter. Add lemon slices and sprinkle with thyme leaves, salt, white pepper and hot paprika. Use rest of butter to put over the vegetables.

Place the baking dish in a pre-heated oven at 180 C to 200 C for approx. 30 to 40 minutes. Just before the root fruits are ready, fry the fish, which you have seasoned with salt and white pepper, in virgin olive oil. Remember just a cut above his back, so the fish do not "bend". The best way to fry fish fillets is on the skin side until meat is white and firm. Is very thick fillets reversed and they finally get approx. 30 seconds on the meat side. Place the fish over the root vegetables and bake them together the last 10 minutes in the oven.

Serving: Place the vegetables and fish fillets on 4 plates. Use the beautiful gravy from the fish to sauce and drippings of the bread.

Hint: Would you like to use the meal as a main course, you can get sliced potatoes in the baking dish and adjust with butter, salt and pepper. Oven times perhaps additional 5 to 10 minutes. I have this time fried the whole fish, but if children should eat the meal it is recommended to use fish fillets.

Drink: Cold glass of strong white wine. Or the good Wiibroes vintage beer 2001. Perhaps an Elephant beer from Carlsberg.
