Pollack sashimi with English mustard and Gentleman's Relish
Serves 4 -6
Friday 01 February 2008
Yes I'm still flying the pollack flag, although we do need to be careful that we don't wipe them out, too. I reckon before long its close cousins saithe and coley will also be bidding for places on restaurant menus, which won't be a bad thing because, like pollack, the larger fish have pretty firm flesh and eat very well.
Julian Biggs, the chef director at Urban Caprice, created this little gem as a canapé and the mustard works in the same way that wasabi would.
Gentleman's Relish is a type of anchovy paste, but I've always wondered who eats it because I've never actually seen it passing anyone's lips. You can buy it from Waitrose and posh delis.
250-300g very fresh pollack fillet from a large fish
A couple of teaspoons of English mustard
A couple of teaspoons of Gentleman's Relish
With a very sharp knife, slice the pollack into wafer-thin slices and lay them on a sheet of cling film. Smear a little of the mustard on to the pollack and roll the slices up. Secure with a cocktail stick and put a small amount of Gentleman's Relish on with the point of a knife.
Make these as close to when you're going to serve them as possible.
