From Chef Oonagh Williams of Royal Temptations Catering
I had this for lunch at Cape Town Fish Market in May 2015, sitting in the sunshine on the pier outside the Victoria and Alfred Mall in Cape Town, South Africa. We had just come off the ferry from visiting Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned.
My lunch actually was two pieces of grilled hake sandwiching spinach, sundried tomato and feta cheese, with a prawn (shrimp) and olive tapenade. They used fresh spinach, but I like to keep a bag of frozen chopped spinach in the freezer. I added some cream and left out the olive tapenade – far too salty for me. This sauce would go well with probably any fish or chicken breast or pork. Add different herbs, some chili spice.
Generous sauce portioned for 2 people
Oonagh’s Alternative Suggestions:I like to add fresh parsley or basil. Lemon thyme in season is wonderful, little bit of fresh mint. This would also be good over pasta or rice. Use coconut cream to reduce cholesterol and omit feta and it’s dairy-free. I also cook a similar mix as a base for a crustless quiche. I tried adding a vodka cream sauce I had bought that was good on its own, but didn’t work in place of cream in this recipe.
