I posted in the 'recipes' section but am too impatient haven't had a reply, Has anyone any hints/ideas for me? Apart from potato (or anything made from potato eg chips!) what would be a nice accompaniment to fish? I am trying to eat a lot more fish and have been making it a lot for DS too but I'm getting sick of eating potato with it but it's the only thing I can think of blush

Seasoned rice with steamed veg is lovely with haddock or Salmon.

Or could do stir fried vegetables and salad?

I'm not the biggest rice fan but DS loves it so I could give it a try, I like the stir fry idea as well thanks.

A nice green salad and a salsa. I like a salsa made with red onion and either cantaloupe or mango to go with fish. You can add a bit of chilli too if you want.

Or try making a potato salad with sweet potato and red onion, plus a green salad.

I like to serve salmon fillets on some simple cooked fettucine dressed with olive oil, pepper and lemon juice, with either mange tout or sugar snap peas on the side.

With white fish I love to make a lime wasabi mayonnnaise - really simple: just mix a bit of mayonnaise with a squeze of lime juice and some wasabi paste (you can buy little tubes in most supermarkets). That's great on the fish with salad and oven chips.

Sea food works well with pasta, and nice bread can be good too. We like scallops fried with chorizo, with either focaccia or garlic bread and salad. Mussels go well with bread to dip in the cooking liquor.

I made this mackerel dish with a mango and qunioa salad the other day, see link for recipe

Couscous. I had grilled sea bass with citrus couscous just the other day and it was immense.
Smoked haddock is ace with a green salad and wholemeal bread.
Honey glazed salmon with prawns on a simply dressed salad is lovely.
tuna steak with stir fried vegetables and noodles is the quickest thing in the world and tastes great.

Oh, butter bean mash is fab too. I eat that with loads of things, fish included!

rice with soy and sugar snaps, baked salmon
very mild coconut fish curry
fish in cheesy sauce with mash

Or the best for children, IMO, is a whole massive fish in the middle of the table, with new potatoes and veg or salad. Pick off the meaty bits as you go. Leave the head on, they find it fascinating.

ooooo yyy to moules et frites

DC lived off these last year in France. Cooked simply with cider, shallots, parsley and a little cream. mmmmmmmmmmmm

I like fish with green veg, eg courgettes fried in basil oil with garlic, or steamed broccoli. You can dress it up with herb butters - get some herbs, chop and mash into room temp butter, then chill and use as needed. White fish go nicely with a dollop of tomato sauce too. Salmon is nice cooked in coconut milk with lime and coriander - I'd have that with rice and steamed broccoli.
