Our two course braised ling menu takes you on a journey to France, starting with sardines with a caper and tomato salsa from the Mediterranean fishing port of Port-Vendres in the south of France. The main course is a twist on the classic French dish, ‘petit pois à la française’, in which peas and lettuce are braised in stock and butter accompanied by ling which is a member of the cod family and a simple meal enjoyed by many across France.

Rick says: '“Ling is one of those underrated fish which, in addition to being reasonably flavoured, is also firm in texture - like Monkfish. It is an extraordinary looking fish which could easily be mistaken for an eel, so long and sinuous is its appearance.”'.

Packed with fresh ingredients from Cornish and British suppliers the braised ling Stein's at Home menu is a quick and easy restaurant quality meal for you to enjoy at home.
