Northern Wolf Fish With Dill- Mustard Sauce, Garlic Potatoes, Tsatsiki & Seaweed Salad with Trout Caviar

When you look at the cooked fillet in this post, you might think that the fish is way overcooked, because the longer you cook certain fish, the more of this white gunk will come to the surface.
However, this particular fish loses a lot of the stuff even when just hot on the surface, way before it is cooked through (so does salmon).
This totally harmless, but to some folks wholly unappetizing white gunk that seeps out of fish fillets as they cook is just coagulated protein, also known as albumin. (To clarify, the correct spelling is albumin with an “i.” You may have also heard of albumen, with an “e,” but albumen is the term for egg whites. They’re two different things.) This sounds bad, but it’s absolutely safe. Albumin gets pushed out of the muscle fibers of fish as it cooks, coagulating at the surface. This will happen to most fish/protein, no matter what you do. It has been hypothesized that the way you cook fish – how fast and how long – causes albumin, but this is only true to some extent and protein.
So, next time you see albumin,  just blot it off with absorbent paper and you´re good. (As long as you don´t overcook the fish, but that´s another story 🙂

Bon Appétit !   Life is Good !

Pls note :
Dill-mustard sauce ( HOVMÄSTARSÅS ) is actually a cold sauce, used mainly as a condiment for Gravlax in Sweden/Scandinavia  (Click here for more gravlax and dill-mustard sauce on ChefsOpinion)
However, I that find it also perfectly compliments sauteed white-fleshed fish fillets.

INGREDIENTS
Dijon mustard — 1/4 cup
White or red wine vinegar -1 tablespoon
Sugar – 1 tablespoon
Salt and pepper – to taste
Vegetable oil – 1/2 cup
Fresh dill, chopped – 3 tablespoons

METHOD

Mix the mustard, vinegar, sugar, salt, and pepper together well in a medium-sized bowl. Slowly whisk in the oil.
Stir in the chopped dill, check/adjust seasoning

  1. My Dear Chef, thank you for the detailed information about albumin. The Northern Wolf fish looked perfectly cooked. It seems to be more a reaction to temperature than time in cooking fish. Best,
    Richard
