Gennaro’s Gorgeous Grilled Fish With Pesto Dressing
Hi lovely people of Food Tube. What I gonna
cook for you today, and for me, lampuka with pesto in Malta. So fresh and so wonderful.
Lampuka is a local fish. Hahaha. But don’t forget, you can use the sea bass, sea bream,
sardine, mackerel, almost all kind of fish. Lampuka is the fish but as long as you have
a nice and fresh fish it’s incredible. First of all let’s make a pesto. This is a kind
of infusion marinade. Here I’m gonna use mint, parsley, garlic half straight in, little chilli,
plus lemon zest. Yes, I’m gonna use a little bit of lemon in as well. Squeeze about half
a lemon. Look how strong I am, I can’t believe it. Anyone ask how old I am, no I won’t give
you my age, no way at all. Now, Maltese olive oil. Let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go. That’s
good. Then capers. Make sure you taste it first. If it’s too salted put them inside
the water and make sure they’re losing a bit of salt. I’m gonna use a handful of this one.
What actually the flavour of the capers do, it’s got salt in it. Don’t forget, capers
grow by the sea so in a way, when the sea breeze, the wind of the sea comes over the
wave, the lovely capers catch them all. It keeps the flavour themselves. It’s so fantastic.
Last, not least anchovies, yes! All going in. Don’t be afraid, I’m just gonna put a
little bit. Then you get all those together and you start to mix it. Don’t worry if they
won’t break mould, mix it like a pesto. Now, yes we’ve got lovely fillets of lampuka. Look
at that, beautiful. I’m gonna do two actually. Season a bit, just a little bit. Then put them in
together, get the other side. Little pepper in. Now you make sure the griddle, it is extremely
hot. Olive oil. You only need a little bit just to wipe the fish, look. You turn them
to the other side and then you oil it. They only need a little oiling. Yes, no, no! Yes,
no, no. You can see there is not any oil because the oil, look at that, it’s on the fish. Get
a fish, one, always with the skin down, two. You can see the lovely line on the fish, means
it’s cooked on one side but do not overcook it. Now, slowly you turn it. Don’t worry if
the skin is broke a little bit, you cook the other side. Look at the lovely pesto. Just
brush on top. The anchovies, the garlic, the chilli, the capers, incredible! All this adds
to the flavour. At this stage the fish is cooked. Oh my, my, as soon as it come out
I need this pesto to get on top. Oh wow, wow, look at that! Look at that! Yes! Now
you leave them for rest. Maltese rocket and a bit of salt, olive oil, squeeze a nice bit
of lemon inside. Just quick mix it. And this is grilled lampuka with pesto and wild rocket.
From there to here to here, hey! Mmm, so delicious. It’s the flavour of the sea. It is fantastico.
