Asparagus Almond Snapper with Oven Baked Hash Browns

Asparagus Almond Snapper with Oven Baked Hash Browns

Posted 2017-09-03 by finyfollow

Baking hash browns or Rosti in the oven is healthier than frying, and this was an experiment that worked out well!

I made an asparagus and sour cream sauce for the pan fried baby snapper, and these were "melt in the mouth" delicious - the secret with fish is cooking in hot oil, and not overcooking.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 50 minutes
Serves: 2 - 3

For the rosti
500 g potatoes, peeled
1 medium onion
30 g butter, melted

For the fish
375 g snapper or similar
2 tbsp flour
30 g butter
Almond flakes
For the asparagus sauce
250 g asparagus, tinned
3 spring onions, chopped
120 g plain yogurt

For the rosti
  • Make this first as it takes a while to bake.

  • Cook the potatoes in plenty of salted, boiling water for only about 7 minutes - you want them to be slightly cooked ONLY.

  • Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 200°/180° fan forced.

  • Drain and brush a muffin tin with the butter or use paper patties.

  • Grate the potato and onion, and mix in a bowl.

  • Pour the melted butter over this, and add salt.

  • Using two forks, divide the mixture into the muffin holes, gently pressing them in.

  • Cook the rosti for about 45 minutes, checking half way that they are not burning.

  • Using a small palette knife, loosen each rosti around the edge, and lift out.

  • Serve with the fish, or can be heated up in the oven for several days later.

  • For the fish
  • Cut the fish into smaller pieces and toss each piece in a mixture of flour, salt and pepper. Shake off excess.

  • Melt butter in a frying pan and fry the fish until tender - just a few minutes each side.

  • Put on a plate on paper towels to drain, and keep warm.

  • To make the sauce, add the reserved asparagus liquid and spring onions to the pan.

  • Simmer until the sauce thickens slightly.

  • Blend a little of the hot sauce into the yogurt and return to the pan. Stir to mix, and add the asparagus.

  • Reheat without boiling.

  • Spoon the sauce over the fish and scatter over almonds (optional, but they go very well with this).

  • Serve with the rosti.
