Trying to eat more fish but stuck for ideas. Something family friendly rather than fancy. What's some of your favourite fish recipes?
Aside from a homemade version of breaded fish and chips, I'm clueless
Delia smiths fish pie, trout and pea farfalle, fish tacos, grilled salmon with mango salsa, fish curry,
Smoked haddock fishcakes
Smoked salmon and asparagus/pea risotto
Fish wrapped in pancetta (or smoked bacon) and baked
Twice baked potatoes stuffed with smoked haddock
Jamie Oliver's traybaked salmon with beans and tomatoes
Prawn stir fry
Salmon fillets topped with cream cheese and crushed Ryvita then baked - or you can top them with pest
Tuna Nicoise salad - or pasta
French fish soup is delicious
We like a salmon fillet cooked in Maggi So Tender dill and something or other papers (roll fish up in the ready-seasonned baking parchments, dry fry for 6 mins per side)
Tuna nicoise (good caesar sauce essential, the cheap stuff is too vinegary)
Little tins of Mackerel in a Spicy Tomato Sauce on toast, on baked potatoes, etc
Cauliflower cheese, green beans/peas/whatever and smoked mackerel fillets
Wrap salmon portions in foil with a good dollop of sweet chilli sauce in there
Tin of Mackerel in a Teriyaki Sauce in a stir fry
Tuna mayo and sweetcorn on a baked potato
Soft cheese and smoked salmon on toast
Some lovely ideas!! Definitely gonna try some of these soon, thanks all
Last night we had a fish curry from Jamie Oliver's five ingredients book. It was SO NICE, only used five ingredients (well 6 as we had rice with it) and it was ready in time it took to cook the rice!
There are some other brill fish recipes in that cookbook, and non fish recipes too. I think it's well worth getting. And his new veg one is great too. X
Jamie Oliver’s sweet pea fish pie and for a truly lazy dinner salmon fillets baked with fiata spices.
I make a sort of fish stew thing with passata, frozen seafood mix, salmon chopped into chunks, sliced red pepper, red onions, smoked paprika and (optional) chilli flakes all simmered together. Lush with rice / salad / crusty bread
I make this cod and chorizo stew from the bbc good food website. It's fab. Sometimes we use half cod and half smoked haddock and I often bung extras in like a bag of spinach and chopped peppers.
Oo I love fish. Smoked haddock chowder is amazing - one of my faves.
Salmon in honey and soy glaze. We usually have this with noodles.
Sea bass with chilli and garlic.
Seared tuna with satay sauce or wasabi paste, or salsa verde
Baked cod parcels- Chuck all sorts in like peppers cherry toms courgettes olives. Or do he same with tinned tomatoes and bake or cook on the hob.
Jamie Oliver's fish pie with boiled eggs in is the best fish pie ever!
fish pie ...frozen peas in a dish, raw fish on top, boiled eggs too and maybe prawns if you like them. Cover with a really thick sauce, and then mashed potatoes.
Salmon and noodles. This works best with those mahooosive slabs of salmon that you can buy, but fillets work well too if you are not feeding the fivethousand.
Slice spring onions, a chilli, some ginger and some garlic and mix with soy sauce, a splish of sherry, some lemon juice or lime and a little sesame oil...you just really want enough to cover the bottom of the dish that the fish sits in.
Sit the salmon in this skin side up and leave it for about an hour (not in the fridge)
To cook you are best with a griddle if you have the massive slab of salmon, or a very heavy pan....get this as hot as possible, set the fish into the pan/griddle skin side down and leave it there until the fish looks about two thirds done up the sides, turn over and switch off the heat.
Cook your noodles while the salmon is searing. I like to add some spring onion and sesame oil. Put salmon on noodles! EAT!
Salmon coated with sweet chilli and soy, roasted in the oven and served with stir fry of beansprouts, baby corn, peppers, sugar snaps, spring onions and carrots in sesame oil and ginger with rice or noodles on the side if people want carbs.
Tuna steak dipped in cornflour mixed with water and then rolled in seasoned sesame seeds and fried in a pan. DC LOVE this. Squeeze of lime, sweet potatoes fries and salad.
Any assortment of cold and hot , expensive and cheaper cuts
We use home made cod goujons , mini fish cakes, prawns in garlic , mussels in white wine & garlic , fish fingers , smoked salmon , prawns , crab etc
Crusty bread and butter & Salad , potato salad
Linguine with smoked salmon and prawns or crab and prawns both with a creamy white wine sauce
Mussels in various sauces , crusty bread & butter
Prawn and pea risotto with salmon
Stir fry with noodles and smoked salmon trimmings (nicer than it sounds and cheap too!)
Cod and chorizo stew
Haddock fish cakes with whole grain mustard and cheese sauce all hidden away inside
Chunky Chilli Seafood Stew:-
Slice onions and potatoes thinly. Fry in a bit of oil till the onions are a bit soft. Add a tin of tomatoes, a tin full of water, chopped up chilli and a veg or fish stock cube. Simmer until the potatoes are almost cooked. Add whatever veg you have / want so it cooks at the same time as the potatoes. Carrots, sweetcorn, sweet potato, peas, beans. Anything goes really. I've sometimes added a tin of kidney beans in the chilli tomato sauce. Right at the end, throw in fish pie mix, or the fish of your choice, prawns etc, and cook until the fish is cooked. Serve on its own or with crusty bread.
The whole thing takes about 30-40 minutes.
