Tropical - Fish - Pictures .com

This is a tropical fish site for all tropical fish enthusiasts from beginner to expert. It has some nice tropical fish pictures and will hopefully have something of interest for all freshwater and marine fish keepers. These tropical fish pages provide some information about some of my favourite fish, along with tropical fish pictures of them. I have kept fish for many years now, ranging from community to marine. Over this period I have been drawn towards catfish, and the cichlids, which I must confess, through there antics have become my favourites. I now keep African and American cichlids, along with some catfish and plecs.

Fish Recipes


Roast salmon with red pesto, basil and lime tzatziki dressing

Serves 10

Preparation time 30 mins to 1 hour

Cooking time 30 mins to 1 hour

Ingredients


2.3kg whole salmon, filleted
5 tbsp red pesto
2 tbsp basil, finely shredded
5 tbsp each white wine and water
1 tbsp olive oil

For the lime tzatziki:
450g/1lb Greek yoghurt
1 cucumber, halved, de-seeded and coarsely grated
grated zest of 2 limes
1 large clove of garlic, crushed
1 bunch of spring onions, finely sliced
a pinch of chilli powder

To decorate:
sprigs of fresh basil

Preparing ahead:
Prepare and cook the salmon, chill.
One hour before: make the tzatziki, chill.
Last minute: decorate the salmon and serve.

Method

1. Heat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6. Lightly oil a large sheet of tin foil.
2. Pull out any small bones from the salmon fillets. Lay one fillet, skin side down onto the tin foil, spread with the red pesto and sprinkle with basil, season with a little salt and ground black pepper. Arrange the second fillet on top, again skin side uppermost, press the sandwiched fillets lightly together.
3. Brush the skin of the top fillet with the olive oil, season lightly and pour the wine and water around the base. Wrap the foil loosely around the fish and bake in the oven for 25 - 30 minutes or until the fish is cooked. To test to see if the fish is cooked, the skin should pull away easily and the flesh look opaque.
4. For the tzatziki mix the yoghurt, cucumber, lime zest, garlic and spring onions together, season really well with the chilli, salt and pepper and serve.
5. To serve, lie the fish onto a serving plate and arrange sprigs of basil around the fish, serve the tzatziki in a large bowl.
