I’ve heard about cashew nuts with chicken, but cashew nuts with fish? Well, I saw this in a recipe book and decided to try it out.

First, I blended the cashew nuts like so.

This must be one of the freshest sea bass I’ve ever managed to buy. It was also surprisingly cheap. Only $5.80. I marinated it with flour and light soya sauce. The book says pan fry it until the skin just starts to brown.

The cashew nuts were then fried with minced garlic. Beware the nut burns easily.

Next, we dress the fish up in the garlic and cashew nut mixture, wrap with aluminium foil and basked baked at 240 deg C for 30 mins.

You could really taste and feel the freshness of the fish here. However, I think I used a bit too much garlic and the garlicky flavour drowned out the much milder buttery cashew nut flavour. Do try this at home. The kids will love it.
