Fish Recipes Men Love

Lana Vidler Cooks Fish Men Love
We recently received a review copy of a new cook book called "Meals Men Love" by  Lana Vidler.

 Ms Vidler, a talented young cook and writer from Sydney,  set out to design simple recipes full of the kind of meals that men in particular would love and of course, that means heaps of seafood recipes. Our favourite is the very simple salmon dish called "Wrap me up Salmon".

2 fresh boneless salmon steaks
6 slices prosciutto, finely sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil


Preheat oven to 180°C. Wrap each salmon with three slices of prosciutto, leaving ends exposed*. Heat oil in a non-stick fry pan over medium-high heat. Lightly sear each side for 2 minutes or until prosciutto is lightly crisped. Place on a lightly greased or lined baking tray.

Season with freshly ground pepper and a drizzle of oil.

Bake for 10-12 minutes. Serve hot. Serves two.

* Alternative: drizzle fillets lightly with oil and sprinkle with Italian dried herbs then wrap

The "Meals Men Love" cook book also includes what could quite possibly be the simplest fish dish we've ever seen in a recipe book. It's called "Fishing for Compliments" and here it is:


2 pieces fresh fish
2 tablespoons plain flour
9 teaspoons butter
½ cup fresh parsley leaves, finely chopped

Coat fish in flour seasoned with salt and pepper. Heat butter in a large non-stick fry pan over medium heat
until bubbling. Add parsley, add fish and cook for 3-4 minutes each side or until golden and well-cooked.

+ Serve hot with tartar sauce . Serves two.

You can purchase a copy of this simple, easy to use cookbook for $19.95 at selected homewares and bookstores and online at http://www.mealsmenlove.com.au/ . Recipes reprinted with permission.
