Angelfish Fishcakes with Avocado Salsa

Posted on April 4, 2015 by in seafood

Angelfish Fishcakes

Angelfish Fishcakes, sounds a bit too fishy to me, but if I called them Angel Fishcakes, people might have the impression that the fishcakes had angelic qualities! Angelfish Fishcakes sounds overkill, too fishy, in language terms “redundancy”, but you get the point! You can use any fish, canned pilchards, canned tuna or fresh tuna for […]

Fish Pie – make it and invite a crowd!

fish Pie

Fish Pie was the reason  I crossed paths with the Bloemfontein Fynproewers. Oh happy days! Fish Pie and Bloemfontein – quite an odd combination, but sometimes opposites attract and this fish pie story is proof that it works. Retha Cronje, former chairlady of the Bloemfontein Fynproewers, was looking for a recipe for a fish pie […]

Smoked Cob with Grilled Summer Vegetables

Smoked Cob

Smoked Cob with summer vegetables – definitely something to make this summer. It is light, fresh and perfect for a lazy beach holiday! Smoked Cob is now so “easy” you can buy it at your local Woolworths. I love it, it is not overly smoked like snoek or angelfish, just a subtle hint of smokiness! […]

smoked snoek

Smoked Snoek  and mussel Parcels – my attempt at holding on to a weekend of utter bliss on our beautiful West Coast! Smoked Snoek or just fresh snoek and mussels – two of the West Coast’s abundant offers. I love cooking mussels  in a Fragrant tomato Sauce, but a typical West Coast paella will not […]

Pickled Fish Salad – just in time for Easter!

pickled fish

Pickled fish is such a tradition here in the Cape this time of the year or around Easter and if you travel through the streets there is always an aromatic cloud of curry flavors hanging in the air! I love it! Pickled fish is also known as Curry Fish (kerrievis) here in South Africa and […]

Fried Fish and Wild Mushrooms and Market at the Palms

fried fish

Fried fish with a luscious green salad has always been one of my go-to meals when inspiration lacks or when I can get my hands on freshly caught fish. Fried fish also has a happy thought attached to it, because my parents who live in Hermanus often get their hands on fresh fish and then […]

Chinese Style Crayfish and a Prosperous 2014

Posted on January 1, 2014 by in rsg, seafood

Chinese Style Crayfish

Chinese style cooking and crayfish is not necessarily always mentioned in the same sentence, especially here in South Africa. Chinese style cooking however varies from one region to the next, but it involves flash frying, braising, steaming and stewing and this is where crayfish and Chinese Cooking meet. Traditionally crayfish is best served with garlic […]

Bokkoms

Bokkoms is a well-known delicacy  from the West Coast! It is a whole, salted and dried mullet or better known to us as the Harder! You could say it is our version of anchovies! Bokkoms are often refer to as fish biltong , but what I did not know is how bokkoms got its name……. […]

A seafood pasta with only three main ingredients sounds almost impossible, doesn’t it? This easy seafood meal was born out of necessity rather than a stroke of genius from my side, but it was delicious none the less! I can never go wrong with seafood and pasta and my family, because it just happens to […]

Let’s cook Lobster, crayfish or as we know it in this part of the world “kreef”!

Posted on December 27, 2012 by in rsg, seafood

Lobster

Lobster or “kreef” as we know it here, must be the epitome of wealth and indulgence for any South African who heads towards the coast for his/her annual leave! Wet suit sales and diving equipment sales shoot through the roof as eager beginner divers spend their hard earned cash on all the necessary equipment to […]
