I have a simple dinner for you today my Galley Peeps. Delicate white fish, some salad crab and buttery crackers crumbs, cooked to perfection in barely 20 minutes.
The preparation was super simple too. Fish in pan, a couple of grinds of salt and pepper. Crumbs, melted butter, seasonings all mixed with crab meat. Sprinkled generously over the fish. Baked. Could it be any easier?
The delicate flakey texture of the fish combined with the crispy buttery crabby topping and a squeeze of lemon was pure heaven. So very simple to throw together and because I used my Omnia stove top oven there was very little extra heat generated in kitchen. I served this with a feed of fresh steamed beans from our garden. A winner of a dinner for this very hot summer evening. Add to that a glass of well chilled dry Riesling and your evening just got a whole lot better.
Print the recipe, and save it, because you’re going to want to make this one over and over again. I promise.
Thanks for stopping by. I have a couple or three new recipes that I’ve been working on. More for the Omnia users amongst you too. One is meaty with a simple sauce, sent in by one of my Galley Peeps, Rita. The other, a vegetarian version that I created, inspired by Rita’s submission. And another which really blew me away because it was made from foraged garden bits that I never knew were edible…and wow, was it ever delicious!
