South African Mock Crayfish

South African Mock Crayfish

A light and easy fish dish ideal for Saturday afternoon lunch

900g very firm-fleshed white fish
2 lemons, quartered
1 bay leaf
1 pinch peppercorn

For the Sauce
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon ketchup
1/2 teaspoon horseradish
2 -3 teaspoons pickle relish (sweet or dill)
1 pinch salt
1 pinch pepper

Put fish, lemon quarters, bay leaf and peppercorns in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and cook until fish is just done, 10 minutes or less. (Fish must be firm to hold sauce.) Remove fish from liquid to a shallow bowl or platter. Let fish cool completely.

Meanwhile, make sauce. Pour over completely cooled fish and gently fold in to keep fish in large chunks.

In bowl, whisk all ingredients together and pour over cooked, cooled fish.
