Jonah here.  I haven’t posted recently, but I was proud of this dinner I made a few weeks back, so I had to get on this blog and tell you all about it!

Recently, it was a nice warm summer day and I wanted to make something summery.  So I modified two recipes from Food52.com, a great site Annie introduced me to: Fried spiced fish and summer corn salad. You can find the recipes that this meal is based on here and here.

Fried Fish and Summer Corn Salad


Panko Fried Fish

4 fillets of fish (I used cod)
2 Tbl Chilli powder
1 Tbl Turmeric
1 tsp Black pepper
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp Lime juice
Salt to taste
Panko bread crumbs to coat
Oil for shallow frying

Summer Corn Salad

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 shallot, chopped
1/2 jalepeño pepper, diced
1 red pepper, diced
2 handfuls fresh green beans, cut into 1 inch pieces
2 ears fresh corn on the cob, kernals removed
1 handful fresh basil
2 tablespoons fresh lemon or lime juice
1 teaspoon maple syrup
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
3 tablespoons olive oil
sea salt, to taste


Panko Fried Fish

Clean, cut and wash the fish. Prepare a thick paste with all remaining ingredients (besides the panko and oil) and apply it to the fish. Allow it to marinate while you prepare the corn salad, instructions below. When you’re ready to cook the fish, coat it with Panko, shallow fry in oil and remove to a paper towel-lined plate.

Summer Corn Salad

Heat olive oil in saute pan to hot, but not smoking. Add in shallots and peppers and a pinch of sea salt. Saute 2-3 mins over medium heat, until shallots start to get translucent. Add green beans and saute another 5-8 minutes, until everything is tender, but still has a crunch. Add corn kernels and saute 2-3 minutes. Take pan off of heat, tear basil into large pieces and stir to combine. Heat will wilt basil, but not over cook.

In a separate bowl, combine lemon juice, maple syrup, mustard and 3 tablespoons olive oil and a pinch of sea salt, mixing. Pour over corn and pepper mixture. Toss to coat all the veggies.

Put everything together in on a plate, and enjoy! Happy summer!
