This fish dish is light, healthy and quick to prepare – the perfect accompaniment for rice or potatoes with green beans – while the texture is soft enough for people with dysphagia

Ingredients

  • 800g of fish (e.g. cod, Victoria perch, redfish)
  • 50g flour
  • 200g butter
  • 1 shallot
  • 1 tbsp lemon or lime juice
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp Provencal herb mix or taste booster

Preparation

  • Preheat the oven to 120 °C.
  • Mix the soft butter with the herbes de Provence mix (or Provençal taste booster), salt and pepper.
  • Dice the shallot.
  • Remove any bones from the fish fillet.
  • Dust the fish in flour, shake it off well and season with salt and pepper.

TIP: Prepare the herb butter the day before, this generates a stronger flavour.

Method

  • Heat the herb butter briefly in a frying pan and fry the fish on both sides for a couple of minutes until they turn golden brown.
  • Remove the fish fillet from the pan and put it in a butter-greased oven dish.
  • Put the dish into a preheated oven at 120 °C and cook until the fish is ready for about 8-10 minutes.
  • Turn the fish during baking at regular intervals.
  • At the end of the baking time, sprinkle with lemon juice.
