Kataifi Crusted Cod


Tease the kataifi apart and coat with ¼ of the clarified butter. 

Preheat the oven to 190°C.

Add the garlic, parsley, lemon zest and capers to the remaining clarified butter and season with salt and pepper. Add the silverbeet and tomato to a large bowl, pour three tablespoons of the butter mixture over the top and toss to coat. Separate into four bundles and place on a baking paper-lined tray. 

Season the fish with salt and pepper and brush with the flavoured butter. Rest a fillet on each bundle of swiss chard. Place small bundles of kataifi on top of each fish fillet. 

Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until the fish is cooked through and the kataifi is golden brown.
