Turbot with Pickled Cucumber and Toasted Almonds

Prep time: 31-40 minutes Cooking time: 5 minutes Serves: 2 Skill level: Competent Cook Recipe by: Seafish

Delicious white fish, with lovely spicy flavours from the cucumbers and the warm taste of the almonds


The method

  1. In a bowl mix the cucumber with the salt, sugar, chilli and vinegar, allow to stand for 30 min minimum.
  2. Heat a pan and add a little oil, place the turbot in the pan and cook on both sides until just cooked and no more. 
  3. Remove the fish and keep warm, add a knob of butter to the pan the fish has been cooked in. Drain the cucumber and add to the pan toss until warmed through, throw in the almonds
  4. Place the turbot on serving plates and spoon over the cucumber and almonds

We served the turbot with cooked baby carrots and asparagus - it would also eat well with a vegetable purée such as butternut squash.
