Easter holidays! - Pan fried fish fillet

Lots of cooking, photography and shopping was my agenda during easter break. Rarely I'm focused during weekends to completely the agendas, but this holiday was exception. So there was heavy shopping, good amount of photography and mild storm in the kitchen. Pan fried fish fillet with caramelised onions was simple yet flavourful. Great thing is that it hardly takes anytime to cook. Palak dhal with ginger & pepper eggplant fry was for soul. Chicken breast in spicy tomato sauce for a cold evening. Mushroom briyani with greek yogurt enough to miss home. Wanted to end with red wine chocolate cake, not sure what went wrong it had excess moisture, which made the cake very gooey.  Have to retry this cake, because the cake had great taste and flavour of wine was tantalising! 

Wish I could share mushroom briyani recipe as well, i have great recipe from my sister but every time I jazz up the recipe according to my own mood, that I don't end up documenting here. I'm still optimising the basmathi rice I get in Belgium, I don't get aged rice so most of my food is getting mushy! Sigh! Anyhow people here is pan fried fish with caramelised onions! And hope you all had a eventful and colourful easter! 

Oh btw...Do you guys by any chance have any idea to shoo away the winter? Or may should I bribe The Summer by saying "Honey how about Tres Leches cupcake with mascarpone frosting?"....Lets see if this work, if at all weather God/Goddess reads this!!!

Fish fry

Two fish fillet (I used roodbaars meaning red fish) All white fish would be great!
Half lime
1/4 tspn lemon/lime zest
Sea salt
3 fresh spring of thyme
1 tspn finely chopped fresh dill
1- 2 pod of garlic grated
Pepper according to your taste 
Dash of chilly flakes (I insist touch if spiciness is heaven with caramelised onions!) 
2 tbspn of extra virgin olive oil

Mix all this ingredients with fish fillet and let them marinate in refrigerator for about 1 to 2 hours.
Pan fry them on medium heat till fish gets cooked for 3 to 4 mins and then turn the heat to high to get them roasted for about 3 to 4 mins. 

Caramelised onions
1 large onion - thinly sliced 
4 table spoon of olive oil (add butter if you wish)
Good pinch of sugar 

In a wide thick bottom pan on medium heat, pour oil. When oil warms, add sliced onions, salt and fry till onions become and soft transparent. Add sugar and let them fry till they are golden brown. In case if onions are getting dry add few table spoon of water when necessary!

Serve warm fish with caramelised onions along with rice cooked with peas and beam or mashed potatoes!
