Grilled Dabs ‘n’ Noodles

By , 25 July, 2011 22:48

Dear little Dabs. They are little, by the way, so either have one each for lunch with bread or be sure to have it with a filling side for dinner. You could easily eat two… Beautifully delicate, soft, lightly flavoured flesh and it cooked in six minutes – that’s going to be a winner every time. If you like Sole (I have a sole one-liner that I always perform when anyone mentions sole – do ask if you wish me to share) you’ll LOVE Dab.

IngredientsPicture of dish - Grilled dabs and noodles.
Two whole dabs (cleaned and gutted)
Diced bacon
Spring onions
Sesame oil

Preheat the grill to its highest setting and grill for 3 mins on each side. I didn’t bother to season the skin because I knew we would lose it to the heat of the grill. Beside which, I wanted to taste it pure and unadulterated. It absolutely passed this test. With flying colours.

For the fried noodles – fry off bacon and spring onion in olive and sesame oil, then add the cold, drained noodles and some prawns, then shake dark soy sauce over to taste.
I might add, I had a little drizzle of sweet chilli sauce with the Dab. Oh yes. Fish goooood.
