This pangasius in tomato-saffron sauce is delicious and easy. I wanted to do something with fish in the oven and saffron sauce. The pangasius fillet was offered with a rebate, so that decision was taken quite fast. Then I looked at the ingredients I had available at home and made this combination.
Pangasius in tomato saffron sauce
- 2 Pangasius fillets
- 200 ml cream
- 1 dl white wine
- 2 onions small
- 1 tomato
- capers a handful
- saffron threads a few
- olive oil
- 100 gram polenta
- 400 ml water
- 1 tablespoon butter
- Warm up 400 ml of water for the polenta, it should not be cooking.
- Then put the fire very low and stir in the polenta.
- Add a tablespoon of butter, pepper and salt, and stir well until a thick mass is formed. Keep the polenta warm.
- Preheat the oven to 180° C.
- Chop the onions and cut the tomato very finely.
- Let the saffron soak in the cream.

- Add the tomatoes and reduce.
- Then add the cream and the capers.

If you don’t like pangasius, you can also use another kind of white fish of course. Pangasius is a typical fish of the South-East Asian region. Internationally it is known under different names: basa fish in North America and Australia. In the UK it is marketed as panga or cobbler, often with the addition “catfish”.
