Baked Tilapia with Pickled Curry Cauliflower & Grits

One of our favorite ways to use Pernicious Pickling's Pickled "Sweet Hurry Curry" Cauliflower is to bake it with a white fish, such as Tilapia or Cod. The naturally subtle fish takes on a nice kick from the intense Pickled Cauliflower, then we added grits and a pan gravy for a heartier meal or one could substitute greens for a lighter option.


In a pan lined with aluminum foil, layer the Cod, Pickled Cauliflower and brine – don't forget the red bell peppers and onions from the pickle jar, and a few shakes of salt and pepper. Wrap the foil then bake at 350˚ for 20-30 mins. (Before baking and after shown above.)

The leftover pan juices and brine make an excellent, mild curry infused gravy. Carefully pour the liquid into a pan then, over low-medium heat, slowly sift a heaped tablespoon of all-purpose flour and stir until you reach a desired consistency. If so desired, add a bit of seasoning to taste - a dash of salt, pepper and cumin are great. What you end up with is a lovely and slightly curry infused gravy. Simply pour it over the dish and your ready for a flavorful and healthy meal!
