We buy mackerel ready to eat and cut it up and put it into pasta with sweetcorn, pepper and mayonaise. Yummy. Also grill salmon and do the same with pasta, or eat with mash and broccoli - very healthy. Tuna is easy - just stir that into pasta, add mayo, cheese, any veg you like.

fry some chopped onion and chopped bacon. Leave to cool. Then mix in cottage cheese. Stuff trout with mix, bake 20mins in oven. Yum!

Also Annabel Karmel's creamy seafood goes down a treat in this house.

Good ol' fashioned Fish pie.
Choose 2 large fillets of you fav fish and steam til cooked through. Meanwhile also steam som potatoes which then mash with milk and butter. Make a white sauce and add any herbs you like. Flake the cooked fish in the bottom of your dish and add some frozen peas or any other veg you like. Cover with white sauce and top with mashed potatoe and breadcrumbs if you have some. Then bake gas mark 6 for about 40 mins. DD & DH love it and never have any leftovers

Creamy Seafood

4oz each cod and salmon fillets (skinned) - we just use salmon
1/2 pint 300ml milk
3 peppercorns, 1 bay leaf and a parsley stalk
1oz 30g butter
1 small onion chopped
2 tbsp flour
1oz 30g frozen peas
3oz 90g cooked prawns
1oz 30g grated Cheddar Cheese
salt and pepper to taste
1 tomato skinned etc (we don't bother with tomato)

Put fillets in a shallow pan with the milk, peppercorns and herbs. Bring to boil then cover and simmer for 5 mins or until fish is cooked and flakes easily. Remove the fish with a slotted spoon, strain the milk and reserve. Cut the fish into chunks.

Warm the butter in a small pan, add the onion and saute until just softened. Stir in the flour to make a paste and cook for 1 min. Gradually add the strained milk, stirring util the sauce thickens. Add the fish to the sauce with the frozen peas and prawns, and heat through. Remove from the heat, stir in the grated cheese and season to taste. Serve on bed of rice and sprinkle over tomato.

Hot-smoked trout fillet mixed with Hellmann's mayo and sliced green olives. Spread onto wholemeal bread, sprinkle with mustard cress and shredded lettuce. Squirt of lemon on the top - voila! perfect sarnie.
