A very good reason to visit South Africa's West Coast

The West Coast of South Africa is still not on the list of most (foreign) travellers. We are not too sure why, but one very good reason why travellers should go there is the "Gaaitjie Restaurant" in Paternoster, located about 2hrs north of Cape Town. The restaurant, owned by local foodie Suzie Holtzhausen, offers the finest of the West Coast's typical cuisine. To get an idea of what to the West Coast cooking is like, watch the video below and follow Suzie how she prepares some harder fillets with fennel sambal and tomato smoor. Enjoy & kudos @ South Africa's outdoor & travel magazine "Go!" for the video footage!

If you want to cook it on your own, you need the following ingredients:
  • 6 fresh Harder (Southern Mullet) fillets
  • 1/2 cup of yellow corn meal
  • 1/2 of breadcrumbs
  • sea salt
  • white pepper
  • eggs
  • olive oil
  • fennel sambal (finely chopped fennel with olive oil) with (optional) sedam flowers or some lemon juice instead
  • tomato smoor (kinda chunky sauce or relish) with chili biltong
thx to @joyanne!
