|2||panicles||vine tomatoes from the oven|
|some||Salt (according to taste)|
|some||Pepper (according to taste)|
|60||g||parmesan (or Pecorino hard cheese)|
Here are the ingredients for our dish at a glance.
Prepare the tomatoes:
Place the small tomatoes on the panicle in a roaster, marinate with olive oil, sugar, salt and pepper.
Cook in the oven at 220°C for about 15-25 minutes.
Keep a part of the tomatoes warm in the oven until serving.
Place the plates in the oven to serve.
Switch off the oven!
Use the rest of the tomatoes for the tomato sauce.
Prepare tomato sauce
Add the tomato stock from the roaster, season with salt, pepper, sugar and marjoram.
Finish tomato sauce
Mix the tomato sauce and season to taste.
You can either pass the sauce through a fine sieve or add fibre to the fish.
Keep the tomato sauce warm.
Use basil without the stems and pluck out only the basil leaves.
Preparing Basil Crisps
Heat enough oil in a pan and fry the basil leaves.
Lightly season with salt.
To drain the frying fat, place the basil chips on a kitchen paper.
Prepare the courgettes for frying in a pan.
Wash, dry and quarter the courgettes and remove the inner part.
Cut the courgettes into cubes of about 1 cm in size.
Roast the courgettes briefly in a pan with a little oil.
Prepare pine nuts
Roast pine nuts WITHOUT oil in a pan.
Prepare Basil Pesto
Put basil, roasted pine nuts, olive oil, grated parmesan, salt and pepper in a chopper.
Mix basil pesto
Mix the ingredients to make a fine pesto.
Pour the finished basil pesto into a screwable jar.
A part of the pesto is later used for decoration on the plate.
Cut the spring onions into rings and sauté in a pan with butter and rice.
Fry the finely chopped fresh garlic briefly.
Add the tomatoes to the rice in the pot.
Cook tomato rice
Add the vegetable stock.
Let the rice simmer for 12 minutes at low heat.
Please cook the dish in the pot WITHOUT lid, otherwise the green ingredients turn grey.
Prepare fish fillet
Remove bones as good as you can.
Portion the fish fillets into suitable pieces so that they remain large enough for the plate.
In same time are easy to turn in the pan without breaking.
Flour fish fillet
After cleaning, dab the fish pieces dry, season with pepper and salt, turn in flour.
Fry fish fillet
Fry the fillets in oil (or clarified butter) on both sides until hot.
The fish does not need more than 3 minutes per side.
Finish fish fillet
Reduce the frying temperature slightly.
Now add butter to the fried fish for the fine butter taste and fry again on both sides for 2 minutes.
If you use clarified butter for frying you can save this step!
Arrange and serve
Arrange on warm plates:
–> First spread the rice over the centre of the plate.
–> Spread the fried courgette cubes on the rice.
–> Decorate with the pesto and crispy basil chips.
–> Place fried fish fillets hot and fresh from the pan on top of the rice.
–> Garnish with the caramelized tomatoes.
–> Serve the tomato sauce separately at the table for self-service.
Enjoy your meal!

3. Buy, prepare and fry Fish Fillet
Here a small overview, so that you succeed the preparation simply…
3.1 Buy Fish Fillet
I used fresh cod in my recipe. When buying, make sure that the pieces are approximately the same thickness.
- Ideal fish fillets for frying are cod and cod, redfish or hake
- You need some flour
- For frying sunflower oil and butter or clarified butter
- For seasoning salt, pepper
Important: A fresh fish smells little and pleasant! Otherwise it is better to use frozen fish..Tip from Chef Thomas Sixt
3.2 Prepare and fry Fish Fillet
Rinse the fish fillet under cold water and pat dry.
I used a knife to cut the cod into pieces of about the same size.
It’s easy to get the fish fillet boneless:
I always feel the fillet on bones and pull out big bones with a pair of tweezers.
When I cut redfish, I often cut away generous parts at the edge, there are sometimes many small bones.
The preparation in the pan I describe to you below step by step in detail.
4. Mediterranean Roast Fish Accompaniment
For this dish, I’ve prepared an extraordinary tomato sauce.
I braised the tomatoes in the oven, caramelising them deliciously.
I use these tomatoes as a base for the tomato sauce.
As further Mediterranean grave-goods I have invented pesto from basil and basil chips.
As a side dish a tomato rice with courgette.
