Kingklip With Mini Mushroom Quiches
Riccardo is a 12-year old cricket player. He did the cooking and his mom Antonella had this to say:
"OK, as I have been now been cooking for 21 years I reckoned it was time that I taught my 3 children how to cook, also because my eldest can barely fry and egg. So every night each child has to prepare a meal, with my help if needed, they must decide what to cook and just cook it. So last night my 12 year old decided that he has had quite enough meat and did a fish dish. “Kingklip on a bed of steamed broccoli, fresh garden salad and miniature mushroom quiches”, they were not that miniature but they were delicious.
He prepared the Kingklip by salting it, a little pepper and freshly squeezed lemon juice. He steamed the broccoli in a steamer. The fresh garden salad was made up with crispy lettuce, rocket, watercress, baby tomatoes, Red Peppers and red onion. He then prepared the baby mushroom quiches by adding, One and 1/2 cup mushrooms, 1 cup onion, 1 cup cheddar cheese, 1 red pepper cut up in tiny block, 4 eggs, one cup milk (Fresh cream is better, we just did not have it in the house). 2Tsp flour and 1tsp baking powder, salt and pepper to taste. He also added some paprika. He mixed all the ingredients together and baked them in a muffin pan until golden brown, +- 25min. He kept opening the oven and poking them until he was satisfied they were cooked.
He put a knob of butter in a frying pan, when it was nicely melted he placed the Kingklip in the pan a cooked it to perfection, crispy in the outside and cooked perfectly on the inside.
While the Fish was cooking he plated up the broccoli, salad on the one side and his infamous quiches on the other. When the fish was done he placed the fillet of Kingklip on top of the broccoli added a splash of olive oil and served.
As his sister does not do the fish thing, he made her a very spicy Pork Chop.Well, needless to say, I am one proud mom.
Cannot wait to see what my 16year old will cook tonight!"
