Butter a terrine dish (here I'm using a half-litre (1 pint) aluminium container). Begin by putting a layer of fish in the bottom.

Drizzle with lemon juice.

Fill the dish with boiling water and cook in the oven for about 20 to 30 minutes.

Useful tip: Stick an electronic thermometer in the terrine. It will be cooked when the centre reaches

140°F (60°C).

Stage 10 - 20 min.

Leave to cool a little and turn out just before serving.

Stage 11

Serve in thick slices, hot, warm or cold, with a generous slosh of hollandaise sauce.
Remarks
Do be careful in stage 9: it's always tricky putting a dish of boiling water into the oven.

It is worth alternating different fish to give a more sophisticated flavour. In the photos I have used whiting, pollock and red mullet.

You can add the lemon zest as well as the juice to pep up the flavour of the fish.

The hollandaise sauce is just a suggestion; béarnaise sauce will go just as well, so be guided by your own tastes and use whatever sauce you prefer..
Keeping
1 or 2 days in the fridge, covered with plastic film. Freezes well.
