Prep time: 10 minutes +2 days brining & marinating
Works well with: Harders
Occasion: Tapas, entertaining snacks
8 fillets of Harders (Southern Mullet) from our Fish With A Story convenience range
250 g fine, non-iodised sea salt
250 ml sherry or white wine vinegar
1 red chilli, sliced (optional)
5-6 cloves of garlic
10 g flat leaf parsley
150 ml olive oil
- Put half the salt in a non-reactive container like a tupperware. Lay the fillets on top, then sprinkle the rest of the salt on top. Give it a good shake to make sure everything is well coated, cover and place in the fridge for 3 hours.
- Rinse the fillets under cold water for 3-4 minutes to remove the bulk of the salt. Shake off the water and put them into a clean, non-reactive container. Cover or fully submerge with vinegar and place in the fridge for 12 hours.
- The next day, drain off the vinegar. Rinse the container and lay the fillets back in the clean container, Scatter with garlic, chilli and parsley, drizzle with olive oil and cover to seal. It’s important to keep the fish submerged in the olive oil to allow them to keep.
- Shake the container from side to side to release any trapped air, then seal it and place it in the fridge. Allow them to marinate for 1-2 days before serving on good crusty bread or as a topping for pasta.
