Recipe Ingredients

Pickled Cape Bream

1kg Cape Bream, cut into portions

150 g sugar

500ml white vinegar

5ml whole cumin

5ml coriander seeds, toasted & crushed

10ml fish spice

3 x bay leaves

5ml turmeric

5ml mild curry powder

3 x crushed garlic cloves

5ml grated ginger

3 x chopped onions

10ml corn flour

2 tbsp sunflower oil for frying

Flour, for dusting

Salt and black pepper

Recipe Method

In a pan over a medium heat, add 1 tbsp oil and gently sauté the onion until translucent. Add the ginger, garlic and spices and fry gently for a few minutes, until fragrant.

Add the vinegar and sugar and stir until the sugar has dissolved. Simmer for 20 minutes. Thicken with corn flour to a nice coating consistency. Season to taste.

Dust the fish with the seasoned flour and pat off any excess.

Heat 1 tbsp oil in a heavy-based frying pan and, when hot, fry the fish until golden.

Place a layer of fish in a deep sterile glass or non-metallic container and pour a little of the hot sauce over it, to cover. Continue layering fish and sauce until all the fish is covered. Cool, then chill until ready to serve. Best made at least 24 hours in advance.
