You know when you want your husband or partner to come in the house and say, wanna go for dinner, because you really do not feel like cooking..well, I was hoping it would happen, but it didn’t.So I had to be inventive.
Thank God, that I have inherited my grandmother’s talent in that department.
I open the freezer and there is a Lake Huron White Fish…fillet, frozen.
I fill a dish with lukewarm water, fish goes in and after 15 minutes it is defrosted. Good.
I open the fridge and look for something…Oh, I have leek and cream. Okay…no idea still.
I have potatoes, peel them and steam them, while the fish is defrosting. Still no idea.
I open my spice cupboard and there is the solution, smiling down at me: Saffron and immediately I know what to do.
Here you go:
1/2 leek, sliced
2 tablespoons of butter, better is ghee, a clarified butter or a vegetable oil
1 fillet of white fish, cod, halibut, sole…any white fish will do
1 cup of heavy cream
1 package of saffron
Simmer on medium until you have a thick, bright yellow sauce. And it is finished.
I served this with steamed Yukon Gold potatoes and roasted broccoli. I added the fried leek on top as decoration and extra omph and my husband loved it and so did I.
