Recipe Ingredients: (enough for 4)
- 4 skinless and boneless hake fillets (you can also use fresh cod)
- 8 medium potatoes (cubed)
- 1/2 butternut Squash (cubed)
- 5 garlic cloves (minced)
- 1 piece of ginger (minced)
- 8 baby corn (cut in half length ways)
- 1 tea spoon of turmeric
- 1/3 tea spoon of saffron
- a little olive oil
- salt and black pepper (to taste)
Place a two pans on the stove with some water on one you put in the butternut squash and two of the potatoes + one garlic clove, a little salt, on the other just the remaining potato and get these cooked, it should take around 15-20 minutes. (careful not to overcook them)
Meanwhile blend 2 garlic cloves, a little salt pepper, turmeric and two soup spoons of olive oil, the idea is to make a marinade paste to place on the fish, so coat the fish on both sides with it, for a super flavour. As soon as the potatoes are cooked, put the fish in a non stick tray and in the oven preheated to 200c, it will take around 10 minutes to be cooked.
Drain the potatoes (on their own), and place a wok or a large frying pan on the stove, with the bottom covered with olive oil, once hot add 2 garlic cloves, the saffron a little seasoning and the potatoes, let them crisp up before tossing for turning them (don't use utensils to turn them to avoid further mashing of the potatoes) crisp and toss, do this for around 7 minutes. It will get a mix of textures crisp ones and smooth. The flavours gained from the saffron and garlic are amazing couple with the textures.
also while doing that, place another little frying pan on the stove this one with a little olive oil and once hot add the ginger and a little seasoning as well as the corn, and keep tossing it ass you don't want it to burn, as it dries add a few drops of water and again toss and toss, and a few more drops of water until is cooked but you want it still crunchy, to contrast with the pure.
Now drain the potatoes with the buttenut, mash them all nice and smooth and there you have the pure, if you want more creamy ad a soup spoon of fresh cream. That is it just serve your sunshine and eat.
