It's not Easter without Pickled Fish

8 April 2020 9:54 PM

Guests : Shaheen Moolla | Director at Feike |
               Whilma Liedeman
               Nazley Hendricks | Co-founder at Wetton Fish Market|

The long Easter weekend is around the corner and that means everyone is preparing
their bellies for at least three things: Pickled fish for Good Friday, Easter eggs and of
course, Hot Cross Buns.
Although the history of this aromatic, tasty and refreshing fish dish is unclear, it is as old
as Cape Town itself.
This Easter, with the country under lockdown to curb the spread of the coronavirus,
we’ve all got plenty of time on our hands. And what better way to celebrate Easter than
with traditional, homemade pickled fish?
But where can we buy our fish from? How has the lockdown affected catches? Is
commercial fishing still seen as an essential service? Why are some line fisherman
prevented from doing their work?

-Fatima Sydow
125 grams of butter ( room temperature)
1 cup of sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla essence
3 super over ripe large bananas , the browner the better( if its a bit small , use four

1 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda/ baking soda
With electric mixer , whisk butter and sugar until light and creamy , add the vanilla
essence and eggs on by one , still whisking , add the mashed bananas, flour, baking soda
and salt , now give it a quick stir until just well combined . Next, spoon the batter in a
greased loaf tin and bake in a preheated oven 180°C for 50-55 minutes or until your
insert a toothpick or knife and it comes out clean .
Tip - when still slightly warm , wrap in cling wrap the banana loaf for , 30 minutes , this
will create a moist toffee like outer layer and increase the inside brownish colour of
cake. Please note that no baking powder is used for this recipe.
