Recipes on this page: Baked Kingklip , Cantonese Kingklip corners , Kingklip on skewers with pepper sauce , Lemon Grass Stir Fry



4 pieces of kingklip, approx 160g skinned and deboned
4 red peppers
1 onion
3 cloves garlic
1 sprig thyme
6 basil leaves
100 ml olive oil
100 ml tomato juice
4 teaspoons bulgur wheat
2 artichoke hearts, marinated in lemon juice and olive oil
8 teaspoons chopped parsley
2 teaspoons chopped coriander
4 teaspoons chopped rocket
½ lemon, juiced
½ green chilli finely chopped (no seeds)
12 pipped black olives
1 small carrot
1 small baby marrow, salt and pepper to taste
white wine vinegar
4 large tomatoes
(Serves 4)

For Ragout: Cut the pepper in half and remove all seeds, then lay on a grill to blacken the skin; drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with thyme, basil and 1 chopped garlic clove. Transfer to a bowl with all the juices and cover with cling film and leave to cool.  When this is cool it will be really easy to remove the skin.  Chop roughly, mix with the onions, add the tomato juice and cook until a ragout is formed.

For the fish: Season the fish with salt and pepper and seal in a hot pan in very little oil.  Transfer to a roasting dish and spoon on the ragout.  Remove the skin from the tomatoes by placing them in boiling water for a few seconds and then dipping them in ice water.  This will cause the skin to blister, making it easy to remove.  Cut them in quarters and remove the insides, leaving only the outside petals.  Place two petals on each piece of fish, drizzle with olive oil and chopped herbs.  Bake the fish at 180 degrees for 7 minutes in the oven.

For the tomato chips: Slice one tomato into rings and place on a baking tray with salt, pepper and herbs.  Leave in a very low oven for approx. 2 hours to dry.  The salt with remove the water from the tomato and speed up the drying process.  This is used later as a garnish on top of the fish.

For the Vegetable Vinaigrette: Chop the onions, baby marrows and carrots into small dice and cook without browning in olive oil.  When they are soft, add the white wine vinegar and salt and pepper to season.  Allow to cool.

For the Tabbouleh Salad: Cover the wheat with boiling water and stir with a fork until the wheat swells and is soft.  Rinse under cold water to prevent cooking process from continuing.  Drain well, add chopped garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, herbs, black olives, chilli, coriander, artichoke hearts and season to taste.

The final presentation: Place the Tabbouleh Salad in the middle of the plate.  Place the fish on the salad with a teaspoon of olive puree on each fish fillet.  Stick the tomato disc into the olive puree.  Dress the plate with the vinaigrette and garnish with flat leaf parsley.
