This morning, after a couple of hours’ sleep, I got up, had some tea, and went for a walk. As I strolled along the beach, enjoying the peace and tranquility, a yellow fish caught my attention. It was thrashing about in the water, struggling to swim and get to safety. Its bright orange fins and tail fluttered in the breeze, creating beautiful and peaceful scenes on the water.

So, in other words, ‘al dente’ means you get to the point where you can bite into the food without breaking your teeth.

Now, for some quick context – I’m a bit of a foodie, so I love a good barbecue, love a nice doughnut, and always opt for a steak rather than chicken when eating out. Naturally, my ‘yellow fish‘ video caught the attention of many well-known chefs, restaurateurs, and food bloggers who have since praised its simple and innovative recipe, as have the lovely folk at Food Network and My Kitchen Aid blog.

The Recipe

Here is how you can make a delicious yellow fish meal in less than 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 200°C. Line a baking tray with foil and place on the middle shelf. Clean and cut the tail fins and the head from the fish, then place the body on a cutting board. Use a sharp knife to make shallow cuts through the skin, down to the bone. Turn the fish over and make similar cuts on the other side. Open up the fish, making sure not to cut all the way through, being careful not to damage the spleen. Pull down on the edges of the skin, creating a seal and keeping the belly in.

Now, slice the belly in half, horizontally. The first piece should be cut just behind the head. Take a sharp knife and make several gashes in the top of the fish, avoiding the bone. Cut the head off and discard. Next, using a small knife, make short incisions along the length of the tail. Now, using a large spoon, gently scoop out the guts and set aside in a separate bowl. In the same way, remove and discard the fins, using a boning knife to cut the flesh off the bone. Lastly, place the empty, cleaned-up fish on the baking tray and bake for 20 minutes. Once cooked, remove from the oven and let rest for 5 minutes before serving.

This recipe is almost as quick and easy to make as it is to watch. You will undoubtedly have some left over, which you can use for fish cakes, quiches, or fried fish.
