Fish ala Gronk Recipe

Fish ala Gronk Recipe

A visitor to the Northern Territory cooked this for us during an extended hunting and fishing adventure.  I have to admit it sounded a pretty dubious way to cook fish, but my reservations disappeared on tasting the dish.  It is a surprisingly simple and tasty way to cook fish, even though the ingredients may sound a rather unlikely combination.  This recipe is now a family favorite, thanks to Marshal.


Fresh fish fillets (per pound / 442 grams)

2 tablespoons seasoned flour

4 teaspoon butter

2 crushed cloves of fresh garlic

6 shallots/spring onions

11/2 cup milk

1 teaspoon lemon pepper or freshly ground pepper


Melt butter in fry pan, add crushed garlic, and thinly sliced shallots.  Cook gently but well.

Add milk and pepper and stir.

Dust fish with flour then place gently into the simmering milk mixture.

Place lid on pan and allow to gently simmer for a few minutes.

Keep checking the fish, turning over when required.

Add more milk if desired.  The milk thickens up into a nice sauce.  It may curdle slightly.

Serve fish with sauce spooned over the top.
