For the tomato sauce,
- Tin of chopped tomatoes
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 1 veg stock cube
- 1 teaspoon of sugar
- 1 desert spoonful of balsamic vinegar
- Freshly ground pepper
Soften the onions in a little olive oil until translucent (about 10min in pan, or 5 in microwave). Add tinned tomatoes, vinegar, stock cube, sugar and pepper. Simmer for about ten min then blend and set aside.
- 2 cod fillets or other chunky white fish
- About two inches of chorizo, chopped into little bits
- 4 Spring onions, sliced
- Mashed potato (potatoes, creme fraiche, butter, salt and pepper) to serve with.
Pan fry the fish about a minute each side (you will need to vary this depending on the size and thickness of your fish). Place in the oven on top of a mound of mash on a very low heat. Meanwhile fry the chorizo and spring onion quickly on a high heat until crispy. Drain.
Spoon tomato sauce around fish and mash. Sprinkle with crispy chorizo and spring onion. Serve.
I had a little curry sauce left over from a couple of nights ago, the recipe is the same as listed below for Chicken Curry.
I just boiled up some brown rice, heated up the curry sauce and added some frozen peas and a boiled egg.
Snow day today, woo! Anyway I trudged down to the supermarket in the snow and came back with an omega 3 packed lunch idea to stave of the winter blues. Loving the snow though, we are off to restructure the snowman we built yesterday later.
This is a nice little lunch or supper idea, very easy and quick to make. I bought mackerel in tomato sauce because it was the cheapest, i’m sure this would work with mackerel in brine or oil, just make sure you drain it.
1 small tin of mackerel
2 teaspoons of creme fraiche
A squirt of tomato ketchup (about a dessert spoonful)
A splash of worcester sauce
A squeeze of lemon
Some freshly ground black pepper
Toast and butter to serve (gf in my case)
Lift the mackerel fillets out of the tin into a bowl. Add other ingredients and mix together.
Serve with hot buttered toast. It’s that simple…
What are you doing with your day?
