This a change from Cornmeal Fish I, basically as the result of me taking a nap, and we'll just say that was an extended nap, so I was running late to prepare dinner and this is a delicious result of that error. My wife, and I, actually enjoyed this over the Cornmeal Fish I recipe. When cooking fish, minimum ingredients are need in order not to over power the flavor of the fish. No serving size, times, or quantities are given, this is totally what amount you want to make. And if you want a great fried fish, use lard to fry it in. Link to the shortcut is listed in the Recipe Notes section.

  2. Place some cornmeal in a shallow dish, season the cornmeal with lemon pepper as desired.
  3. Heat a large non stick pan with 2-3 tablespoons of lard. When the oil is hot, dredge each fillet in cornmeal, coating it well. place fillets in the hot lard. cook until golden brown on the bottom then turn fillets over with tongs and cook until golden brown, remove to paper towels.
  4. When all the fillets are cooked, serve with a vegetable or a salad for a nice meal.
Recipe Notes

For the fish, go with about 130 Baht/1 kilo of Pangasius fillets. For 4 servings, this is about 96 cents per serving.

Shortcut: Rendering Lard.

Rotsi (Rösti) is a new term for me, I had to look that up, Swiss in origin meaning shredded par boiled potato. Normally when I see fish pies they are topped with mashed potatoes or just a nice cheese sauce, so this sounds really good for a different topping. I am going to use my individual serving dish or dishes to test this recipe out and will validate the ingredient amounts as well. On my to cook list and soon. Many variants to make this a different dish every time you prepare it.

Instructions
  1. Wash and scrub the potato, certainly use more smaller potatoes if you do not have one large one. Cut the potato in half. Heat a sauce pan with salted water, when boiling, add the potato pieces and cook for about 5-6 minutes, you want firm, not fully tender potatoes as you are going to shred them. When the potatoes have been cooked, slightly, drain them and run under cold water to stop the cooking process. Set them aside.
  2. In a sauce pan, add the milk and fish, bring to just a simmer for 5 minutes, this is precooking the fish, and getting some fish juices mixed into the milk. Remove the fish and drain them, retain the milk and set aside.
  3. Heat half of the butter in a sauce pan, then add the leek and saute for about 5 minutes or until soft. Whisk in the flour and continue to whisk for 1 minute, then remove from heat, then slowly add the milk while whisking. Return to heat and whisk until the sauce comes the sauce comes to a boil, reduce to a simmer for 2 minutes, remove from heat and stir in the parsley and mustard, season with pepper as desired. Set this aside.
  4. Preheat your oven to 180 C (350 F). Get out a small baking dish, I am going to try this with one or two small individual Pyrex dishes.
  5. Flake the fish into chunks and fold into the sauce. Gently fold in the quartered eggs. Pour mixture into the dish or dishes.
  6. Grate the potato pieces then melt the butter in a small sauce pan. Toss the butter with the potatoes, season with salt and pepper as desired. Scatter the potatoes over the dish.
  7. Place the dish in the oven and and bake for 10-20 minutes to get the potatoes golden brown and tender.
  8. Serve.
Recipe Notes

Low cost.

Variants: 1. Use a combination of fish, like whitefish and salmon. 2. Add shrimp. 3. Omit the eggs. 4. Add peas to the sauce. 5. Add some shredded cheese to the potatoes or place on top of the potatoes. 6. Replace the leek with diced onion. 7. Go heavy handed with the pepper in the sauce. 8. Add extra mustard to the sauce.

This sounds very good, and uses a packaged curry from Japan that is exceptional in flavor, Japanese curry tastes neither like Thai or Indian curries. Fish balls (think of small meatballs but made from fish) are very common and for folks in the US, these are readily available at most Asian markets. Curried fish balls are very common in China (and I did receive this recipe from a friend in China). This can be a snack or side dish. If I was a betting man, you could increase the number of ball and make a main dish over rice for two people. On my to prepare list.

Instructions
Prepare the Salmon Loaf
  1. If using canned salmon, drain the liquid into a small bowl and set the bowl aside. If using fresh cooked, after you remove the salmon from the steamer, just set the steamer aside, some liquid in the pot may be used in the sauce.
  2. Heat your steamer, either a pot with water and a trivet or as I am going to use, a rice cooker with a steamer tray. Butter the heat proof dish you are going to use. (Make sure your dish fits the steamer method you are going to use.)
  3. Chop fine either the fresh cooked or canned salmon. Mix the butter into the fish.
  4. Mix together eggs, breadcrumbs, parsley, and salt and pepper as desired.
  5. Mix the egg mixture into the fish, then add the mixture to your dish and when the steamer is hot, place the dish in the steamer for 1 hour. During this time, make sure you keep sufficient water in the steamer.
Prepare the Sauce
  1. Prepare the sauce about 10 minutes before the loaf is done steaming.
  2. In a small sauce pan, heat the milk to a boil. While the milk is heating, mix together the butter and corn starch in a small bowl. When the milk is at a boil, whisk in the butter mixture. Then whisk in a 1-2 tablespoons of the liquid from the salmon can or 1-2 tablespoons of liquid the fresh salmon was steamed on.
  3. Whisk in the beaten egg, sprinkle in a pinch of black pepper. Remove from heat.
  4. When the loaf is done, remove the dish from the steamer, pour off any water from a corner of the dish, then cover the dish with a plate and carefully invert the plate and dish together and lift off the dish leaving the loaf on the plate.
  5. Slice the loaf and pour the sauce over the slices, serve and enjoy.
Recipe Notes

I will price this when I get salmon and determine how many fillets I need to make 2 cups cooked salmon. I will say High cost per serving for now.

Instructions
  1. For the fish I will use Pangasius or Barramundi, both are very good, but any whitefish, boneless and skinless will work fine.
  2. Preheat your oven to 200 C (400 F) and grease with butter a 9x13 baking dish. Melt the butter in a small sauce pan.
  3. If the fillets are large, just cut in half, it makes them easier to remove from the baking dish after cooking.
  4. Add the milk to a shallow dish, stir in the salt. Place the breadcrumbs in another shallow dish.
  5. Dip a fillet into the milk coating both sides, then coat with the breadcrumbs, then place into the baking dish. Repeat for remaining fillets. Goal is a single layer of fillets in the baking dish.
  6. Pour the butter over the fillets. Place dish in the oven and bake for 10 to 15 minutes until golden brown and fish flakes easily with a fork.
  7. Serve with sides of your choice.
Recipe Notes

Pangasius will cost about 45 Baht/500 grams. For 4 servings, this is about 35 cents per serving.

Shortcut: Breadcrumbs.

This sounds incredibly good and comes from a good friend here in Thailand. Common ingredients easily available. This is written for using a half of a salmon fillet, about 1.2 kilos or about 2 1/2 pounds. You can certainly use the smaller fillets (individual portions from Tesco), just use the Serving box under the Ingredients list to change to the desired servings you would like and the ingredients will be recalculated for you.

  1. Preheat your oven to 190 C (375 F), position the rack in the middle of the oven. Line a large baking sheet or baking pan (9x13) with foil large enough to fold over the fillet and seal.
  2. Melt the butter in a small sauce pan, then add the honey, garlic, and lemon/lime juice and whisk to combine.
  3. Place the fillet (or the smaller individual portion fillets) on the foil in the baking dish or on the sheet, brush the fillet or fillets with the honey butter mixture.
  4. Sprinkle with a good amount of sea salt and black pepper.
  5. Fold the foil over the fillet and seal completely, raise up the edges so it does not leak.
  6. Place in the oven and bake for 15-18 minutes or until cooked through. Carefully open the foil, use mitts as the steam is very hot, and fold the foil back to expose the the fillet or fillets. Broil for a few minutes (counter top ovens, switch from bottom coil to the top coil) until the fillet is nicely caramelized on the top.
  7. Remove from oven, sprinkle with chopped parsley and serve with lemon/lime slices as desired.
Recipe Notes

I will price this when I get 4 individual serving fillets from Tesco, for now I will say Fair cost per serving.

  1. Core and chop the apple. I use an apple corer and slicer that removes the core and makes 8 slices. I took each slice, slice it again lengthwise, then chopped. Add the lime or lemon juice at this time to prevent the chopped pieces from turning brown.
  2. Toast the nuts, your choice of almonds or walnuts, these are optional. Omit for any health concerns.
  3. Drain the tuna well or prepare fresh cooked tuna and let that drain after you have removed the bones and flaked it. If using fresh tuna, use 2 cups or 2 1/2 cups. Three cans of tuna (140 grams each), the onion, and apple with lime juice ready for mixing.
  4. Add all the ingredients to a large mixing bowl and mix to combine, taste and adjust mayo, pepper, and lemon/lime juice to your liking. Mixed and ready to chill, no nuts or avocado used this time.
  5. Cover and chill for a few hours, serve in sandwiches or as a dip.
Recipe Notes

Figure about 42 Baht per average size can of tuna, for 8 servings, this is about 66 cents per serving.

Shortcut: Tuna.

Variant: 1. Replace the tuna with 2 cups of cooked, chopped chicken. 2. Use a red onion in place of the brown onion. 3. Use a Fuji apple in place of the Granny Smith apple.
