1. Like a Bit of Spice? Try Our Durban Fish Curry

durban fish curryWho could take a trip to the subtropical South Coast without stopping for a steaming bunny chow or a flavoursome roti? Durban curry has been evolving for over 160 years and takes much inspiration from the indentured labourers who travelled from India to South Africa and brought along their knowledge of exotic spice blends and aromatic cuisine. Along the way, this cuisine was influenced by neighbouring culinary customs such as those from the Zulu culture. Today, Durban’s cultural identity boasts a beautiful blend of traditional Indian heritage with an adapted South African flair.

As far as fish curry recipes go, countless options can be found online, but ours features a vibrant flavour combination of Durban masala (or red curry powder), garlic and ginger, and chopped tomatoes as a base all paired with our flaky Cape Whiting Steaks.

2. Simple, Palatable Paella

The seafood paella we know today has come a long way since its days as a humble farmer’s meal prepared over a wood fire. Originating in Spain, paella was first made with a mixture of proteins such as rabbit, snails, chicken, and beans with rice. Today, there are about 200 distinct recipes that share the name of paella, and fish and seafood are often a favoured option for the meal. If you enjoy hake, calamari, mussels, and prawns, then our easy-to-follow recipe is ideal for you. This colourful pan includes fragrant flavours such as smoked paprika, onions, red bell peppers, as well as saffron.

3. Homemade Fish Cakes

Who doesn’t enjoy fish cakes with a side of aromatic rice, roasted vegetables, or a fresh, summer salad? It is said that the origins of our modern fish cake recipes go all the way back to 19th-century England, where leftover fish was mashed with potato and fried in a crispy batter. These crunchy, crumbly portions can be made from just about any fish – from cod to crab meat, and yes, even Cape Hake! Using our Whiting Steaks, you too can enjoy a homemade version of this delicious recipe, and it only takes a few, simple ingredients. Inexpensive and effortless to make, the whole family will delight in these yummy morsels.

4. Golden Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
