To celebrate Jacob’s Creek Reserve range and the legendary South Australian regions from which the wine is produced, Jacob’s Creek Reserve ambassador and top chef Pete Evans shows us how to prepare an innovative sophisticated King George Whiting. Pair it with Jacob’s Creek Reserve Barossa Riesling for best results.
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Peel the squash, cut it in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds. Cut into cubes. Toss with oil, minced garlic and sprinkle with sea salt. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Roast until fork-tender, not mushy (approx. 30-40 minutes)
While the squash is roasting, shred the kale by slicing it in very thin strips. Add the juice of ½ lemon, a pinch of sea salt and massage into kale to wilt. Set aside.
Pan fry the whiting skin-side down until the skin is crispy and the fish is cooked. Season and reserve until needed.
Make dressing by whisking all ingredients together. Pour over kale, toss to coat.
When the butternut squash has finished roasting, remove from oven and let cool for 5 to 10 minutes.
Add to kale and mix. Toss with sliced shallot, pomegranate seeds, and garnish with lemon zest. Season to taste.
Serve with the fish.
