Smoked mackerel pâté

So easy to whip up, I sometimes wonder why I don’t always have some of this in the fridge, ready to be eaten for lunch or as a dip. Not so much a recipe as a reminder of what to throw into a food processor. A recipeminder if you will – which is basically the… Continue reading Smoked mackerel pâté

Thai Green curry

If you squint at the photo below you’ll see that this time around I made this curry with white fish, but I’ve been known to make it with chicken, prawns, leftover shredded ham, basically whatever I have to hand. And no, I don’t make my own curry paste for this. I mean I could if… Continue reading Thai Green curry

Fish + bean stew

A recipe that largely comes out of the store cupboard you say? YES PLEASE. If you happen to have some fish in the freezer, then you might even be able to whip this up without much ado at all. Serves 4. Ingredients 1 tbsp olive oil 10g butter 1 stick celery, halved & sliced 2… Continue reading Fish + bean stew

Fish pie

Oh I love this pie. It takes a little while to make, but it’s well worth the effort. I know a pastry fish pie can be decisive, so if you’re more of a mash type, then just go ahead with the filling and tuck it in under a mash duvet. It’s all good however you… Continue reading Fish pie

Fish with Thai sticky sauce

I was lucky enough to teach English in Thailand for almost six months when I was 22, and stepped on the plane from London having never eaten any Thai food. Every meal was a whole new experience and I absolutely loved it, and this meal is like a flashback on a plate. Serves 3. Ingredients… Continue reading Fish with Thai sticky sauce

Brazilian Chicken + Prawn Xinxim

This is utterly delicious. You could leave out the prawns, fling in more chicken, or leave out the chicken and whack in some white fish – it’s yummy whichever way you want to serve it. This recipe is from Diana Henry’s wonderful A Bird in The Hand book which is literally a winner winner chicken… Continue reading Brazilian Chicken + Prawn Xinxim

Goan fish curry

Definitely not authentic, but definitely delicious. Whatever firm white fish you have can go in here, prawns if you have them (I didn’t have any this time around), or switch out the fish for cooked chicken, or keep it veggie by flinging in whatever veg you have in the fridge. It’ll still be yummo. This… Continue reading Goan fish curry

Pan fried fish with tarragon beurre blanc, hasselhoff potatoes + veg

Yes yes I know they’re really called hasselback potatoes, but that’s not what we call them in our house. You can use any firm white fish for this, and the tarragon is entirely optional. Everything’s entirely scaleable depending on how many you’re feeding, and the sauce feeds about 4 – I used Jamie Oliver’s clever… Continue reading Pan fried fish with tarragon beurre blanc, hasselhoff potatoes + veg
