I have been trying to make some space for my books and made the (quite scary) decision to get rid of my ‘Food and Travel’ magazines. I love the magazine, but rarely go back to look at them, and they take up ALOT of space! So I have been spending some time going through the magazines and taking out any recipes or articles in there that I want for the future. Tonight’s dinner was inspired by a recipe I found, and only slightly adapted to make a delicious meal.
Spiced Haddock with Indian Potatoes
2 Haddock fillets – or cod, or any white fish
1 tbsp Medium curry powder
1 tsp vegetable oil
1 tbsp lemon juice
3 large potatoes, cut into small chunks and par-boiled
1 tsp black mustard seeds
1 tsp yellow mustard seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds
Small handful of curry leaves
1 large onion, chopped
Fresh coriander, chopped, for garnishing
- mix the curry powder together with the oil and lemon juice. Rub all over the fish and leave to stand for half an hour.
- heat the oven to 180°.
- pop the fish into the oven and bake for 20mins, or until lightly cooked through.
- meanwhile… heat a splash of oil in a frying pan and add the mustard seeds, cumin and curry leaves. Add the chopped onion and stir fry for 10mins. Add the potato and stir until the potato is browned and a little bit crispy.
- serve the fish sitting on top of the potatoes, with the coriander strewn over the top.
- bon appetit!
