Blue eye in a bag with fennel salad

Method

  • Preheat oven to 160°C.
  • Combine ½ cup oil with the juice of ½ lemon, 3 tbsp chopped parsley and seasonings.
  • Then put the fish in individual oven bags and evenly pour in the oil mixture. Press out the air, tie up, place on an oven tray in one layer and cook in the oven for 15 mins.
  • While the fish is cooking, toss the fennel bulbs with the juice of ½ lemon, a splash of oil, 1 tbsp chopped parsley, seasonings and capers. Taste for seasoning and set aside.
  • To make the dressing, process the egg yolks with the mustard, Tabasco, 1 tbsp chopped parsley, 2 tbsp lemon juice and seasonings until thick. Then add 150 ml oil, little by little through the feeder tube, continually mixing. Taste for seasoning.
  • To serve, mound the salad on individual plates and top with the fish, the cooking juices and a dollop of the dressing.
