Have friends over for dinner this week, one eats no meat but does eat fish, looking for something yummy and not too time consuming (but do have slow cooker)

Two of my favourites, really easy and given a thumbs-up by DH who 'hates' fish hmm:

Thai-style steamed trout (BBC Good Food)
4 trout fillets
small knob of fresh root ginger, peeled and chopped
2 small garlic clove, finely chopped
1 large fresh red chilli, seeded and finely chopped
grated zest and juice of 2 limes
4 pak choi, quartered lengthways
4 tbsp soy sauce

1. Place each trout fillet on a square of foil and scatter over the ginger, garlic, chilli and lime zest. Distribute the pak choi evenly between the four parcels, fold up the edges of the foil and drizzle over the lime juice and soy sauce.
2. Loosely seal the foil to make 4 packages, making sure there's space at the top for steam to circulate, then steam for 15 minutes.

Serve with jasmine rice.

I quite often use plaice fillets instead of trout, which works just as well.

Coconut baked fish with papaya and lime salsa (Olympic Cookbook)
4 skinless cod fillets
4 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
75g unsweetened desiccated coconut

For the salsa:
1 papaya, peeled, seeded and cut into small chunks
1 very small red onion, finely chopped
small handful of chopped coriander leaves
juice of 1 fresh lime

1. Pre-heat the oven to 200C/400F, gas mark 6. Dip each piece of cod into the chilli sauce to coat, then press into the coconut until evenly covered. Arrange on a baking sheet lined with baking parchment and bake for 12-15 minutes.

2. Mix the salsa ingredients well and season to taste.

Serve with rice and/or a simple green salad.

My dh isn't keen on fish either and he really like this recipe...(and it is super easy.)

Salmon and Noodles

a piece of salmon for each person
bread crumbs - I make them from a slices of grated burgen bread (probably about two third of a slice per piece of fish)
mixed herbs
wasabi paste - as little or as much as you like

So, spread the wasabi paste on the fish, it is really hot so less is more!
Then mix the bread crumbs and mixed herbs.
Sprinkle the bread crumbs over the fish
Place on an oven tray and bake for about fifteen minutes, (I usually cover the fish with tinfoil and take it off for the last five minutes of cooking.)

So when the fish is in the oven boil up some noodles.

And in another pan pour in a heap of soy sauce, lime zest, lime juice and a sprinkling of sugar. Keep tasting it, it should be bitter sweet.

When all cooked...

Strain the noodles and serve in a bowl, place the fish on top and drizzle with the soy sauce mix.

Sorry for being really wordy, hope your dinner party goes well!

Thanks both, I went for the Thai fish which was a success! But I love the sound of the wasabi salmon too so will try that another time
