5 easy fish recipes that belong on your weekly menu

Whether you’re pescatarian, eating more fish right now because of lent, or just need some new fish recipes, we’ve got 5 excellent ideas – from baked fish and roast fish, to fish soup and fishcakes.

1. Chilli butter-roasted kingklip with mash

Kingklip is a wonderfully meaty fish that holds itself up well against bold flavours, such as this chilli butter. Add some sautéed broccoli here if you feel you need some greens. Leave out the Parmesan – or find an animal rennet-free version – if you’re a strict pescatarian.

4. Braaied fish cakes

If the idea of braaing a whole fish scares you, why not start off small with these fish cakes? Of course you could just pan fry them, but finishing them on the braai adds a fantastic smoky element.
