Wild Garlic Recipe
Spring is obviously a great time for foraging, with loads of fresh new spring growth. We’re spoilt for choice when we’re out and about with our foraging baskets. There is, however, one forage that reigns supreme this time of year, so here’s a classic Wild Garlic recipe.
We love to connect people to their plates. This wild garlic recipe is simple and delicious, and easy to adapt to the whole family’s tastes. Get the kids involved, pick the garlic, mix it up and slather it on the fish before you tuck in as a family. What could be better!
Hake is a great, versatile fish that we really like using. It can easily be substituted for other white fish like cod or haddock, or even chicken breast.
In our March blog we featured more recipes for wild garlic, including wild garlic pesto– which is a great accompaniment for white fish. If not, never fear, you can make a similar pesto with nettles or other edible greens. In a pinch, a jar of ready made green pesto will work just as well!
For this wild garlic recipe, firstly mix your pesto with the zest of a lemon and some breadcrumbs. Use a couple of large tablespoons of pesto to about 100g breadcrumbs. You can add in some chopped olives or capers as well, if you like.
Secondly, place your fish fillets skin side down on a tray, press the breadcrumb mixture onto the fish, and bake for about 10 minutes until golden brown.
New potatoes go great with this, either boiled or roasted, or a fresh green salad.
