- 4 sea bass or other fish of your liking
- Olive oil
FOR THE TOMATOES
- 300g cherry tomatoes, stem attached
- 1 can diced tomatoes in juice
- 1 clove garlic
- Splash of red wine vinegar
- Pinch of brown sugar
- Pinch of tarragon
- Salt, pepper
FOR THE PEAS
- 200g green peas in pods
- 1 tablespoon butter
- Pinch of oregano
FOR THE SWEET CORN
- 4 sweet corn cobs
- 1 tablespoon butter
- Pinch of grated hard cheese of your liking
FOR THE RADISHES
- Bunch of radishes
- Bunch of dill
- Few drops of sherry vinegar
1. Rub the sea bass or any other fish of your liking with the salt and olive oil. Grill the fish for around 5 minutes. Then prepare different Spring garnishes.
2. Prepare the tomatoes. In a skillet pour the olive oil, add halved garlic clove and brown it. Then add the cherry tomatoes including the stem and canned diced tomatoes with juice. Flavour with brown sugar, salt, pepper and tarragon.
3. Make the blanched peas. Prepare a bowl of ice water and ice cubes. First of all, drop the peas into the pot of boiling water for 2 minutes, then immediately transfer the peas with a slotted spoon to the bowl with ice. This way you will be able to keep the bright green colour of the peas and all vitamins. Flavour the peas with the butter and oregano.
4. Make the sweet corn cobs. Parboil the cobs for 2 minutes, then place them on the grill and brown them on all sides. As soon as you take the cobs from the grill, butter them and sprinkle with your favourite hard cheese or simply season with the sea salt.
5. Prepare the radishes. Rinse them well but leave the leaves and stems. You can use them as a beautiful decoration. Half the radishes and sprinkle with some dill. Instead of traditional sour cream topping you can use the sherry vinegar.
It is hard to believe but tomatoes go extremely well with vanilla pods. So, feel free to experiment whilst preparing the tomatoes.
