Recipe: Asparagus Fish

I have to start off by giving complete credit for this recipe to my Mum and Gran.  This is a dish we grew up with, and it is not only extremely yummy, it is super easy and suitable for the whole family (its great to blend or mash up for baby too).  The ingredients can be easily kept on hand ready for when you have some fresh fish.

With a baby on the move about the house, I dislike cooking on the stove at the moment, so this is a great alternative to still be able to eat fish.


Boneless fish fillets or steaks for number of persons required (I used snapper the other night)
Squeeze of lemon juice
1 tin of asparagus spears and liquid (you can use either whole spears or a tin of the asparagus pieces)
1/2 cup white wine (optional) (I have also used sparkling wine)
30g butter
Salt and pepper
1 packet dry mushroom soup
1/2 cup milk (or more if not using wine)
Spring onion, chopped (suit to taste)

Set oven to 180 deg C.

Place fish pieces in shallow dish.

Mix together liquid from asparagus, mushroom soup, lemon juice, milk and wine, and pour over fish.

Season with salt and pepper and dot with butter.

Place in oven for 20 minutes, then add spring onion and asparagus.

Bake another 10 minutes (or more depending on thickness of fish).

Serve over mashed potato.

Sounds nice and easy - unfortunately I hate all seafood - I wonder how it would work with say, chicken?

I have a new love of asparagus that I never had before! It sounds lovely. Just wish it was easy to source fresh asparagus out here.

I LOVE asparagus. At the risk of sounding uncouth - how good is tinned asparagus on toast? :)
