Suresh Hinduja is another one of my foodie friends, a food designer and CEO of India's portal on food and drink. The fabulously creative Suresh has been kind enough to create a dish especially for this competition. Try this lovely Dish - Fishta (Pista encrusted Fish with shallot lime emulsion and baby potatoes spiked with cumin seeds).
Fishta Ingredients
150 grams fish fillet
A pinch of turmeric A pinch of salt
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp Pistachio flakes
1 tbsp olive oil
Juice of 1/2 lime
2 tbsps finely chopped shallot/spring onion greens
1 cup boiled baby potatoes
1 tsp oil
1 tsp cumin seeds
Chili flakes

Method Rub the turmeric and salt into the fish fillet and apply the oil then leave for 1 minute. Bake in a medium hot oven and apply/press the pista flakes onto fish when the fish turns opaque and switch off the oven (approx 15 minutes). Whisk together the shallots with olive oil and lime juice and salt for 1 minute and reserve. Sauté the potatoes with cumin seeds in little oil for 3 minutes and reserve. To serve, sprinkle bedgi (mild) chili flakes on to the plate, spread the shallot emulsion in the center of the plate. Remove the fish from the oven and place over it. Surround with potatoes and serve.
