Just a quickie as I need to leave the house pretty soon, but I wanted to start blogging proper before I forget all about it. Anyway, this is last night’s dinner and despite the unappetising looking photo it was actually really nice. Bren gave it a big thumbs up. I bought a copy of Nigel Slater’s Real Fast Food a few months ago and had yet to really try anything. This was a recipe for fish steaks in a lemon, cream and coriander sauce, very quick, very simple. I adapted mine and used some tofu chunks in place of the fish and it still turned out really nice. The recipe suggested an accompaniment of some quick fried fennel so that went along with it. We had asparagus languishing in the fridge so that got grilled and added along with some fried potatoes, just for a bit more carb. I didn’t follow the recipe exactly so this is my adaptation, ie just a bit more of everything except the fish!
1 white fish steak (I used haddock and had some tofu for myself)
200 ml of double cream
Juice of one lemon
Roughly 2 tablespoons of chopped coriander leaves
Salt & Pepper
Mix the cream, lemon juice and coriander leaves together, pour over the fish steak in a shallow baking dish, season with salt and pepper then pop into the oven at 200 for 12 minutes. Easy peasy!
