Lime and Garlic Gurnard Fillets

Last week I saw these nice gurnard fillets at our fishmonger, usually they are expensive but this time the price was quite reasonable hence I grabbed some. It was an unplanned purchase hence I don’t have any menus created for it, was thinking of frying it but its good with non-filleted gurnards so I coated it lightly with flour, garlic and parsley then pan-fried it then drizzled a bit of lime on serving.

Its good enjoyed on its own, with some rice pilaf or even use it as a filling on your soft tacos.

    This is amazing Raymund! Coating the fish with garlic as well as seasoning would be a great flavour enhancer. I have never eaten gunnard with I am sure this will be great with any white fish fillets, thanks for sharing 8)
