Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Place the fish in a baking dish. You can also use half-thawed fish fillets. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
  3. Combine sour cream, saffron, and chili in a saucepan. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and let simmer for a few minutes. Add more spices if desired.
  4. Pour the sauce over the fish and bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until the fish is cooked through. Remove from the oven earlier rather than too late.
  5. While the fish is in the oven, prepare the shrimp and the broccoli mash.

Cilantro shrimp

  1. Mix oil, garlic and cilantro with the spices in a food processor or with a hand mixer.
  2. Combine the pre-cooked and peeled shrimp with the cilantro oil in a bowl.

Broccoli mash

  1. Coarsely chop the broccoli and cook until tender in lightly salted water. Drain and add olive oil, salt and pepper. Mix with an immersion blender or hand mixer until the mash reaches the desired consistency.

Tips

Not a fan of cilantro? Feel free to replace it with any other fresh herb - parsley, basil, marjoram, thyme or even mint. You can also mix various herbs.

No broccoli? No problem! You can always sub in cauliflower instead.

    I have a quick question about the ingredient list.
    you can see listed 300ml of sour cream to make 4 servings. But in the instructions there is no sour cream, but crème fraîche. Should I assume it should be crème fraîche in the ingredients list, then?
    Thank you :)

    Thanks for pointing that out, Camila! I'll let our team know, but either one would work well for this recipe.
