The past 2 days have been fishie-filled 🐟🐟🐟 , and very lovely too. Last night salmon was the fishie of choice, roasted in the oven and served with lentils.

ImageThe puy lentils were simply par-boiled, then sautéed with onion, celery and carrot. I just love lentils cooked like this- so simple, yet filling, tasty and good for you, could I ask for more! With the lentils I quickly charred some baby courgette, and of course some little olive oil roasted potatoes for Colin…..

The salmon was delicious- no fussing about here, just seasoned and quickly roasted in the oven for 15mins leaving it juicy and just cooked through. It’s funny to think that it is only a matter of months since Colin started eating salmon as we now eat it at least once a week it seems!

Tonight’s fishie of choice was sea bass: 🐟🐟🐟


This is a take on a Thai red curry. I simply added some red curry paste to a large pan and stirred over a medium heat until fragrant. To this I added a tin of chopped tomatoes and simmered for 5mins. At this point I added more chilli after tasting as the paste was not as hot as I like it! I then added a tin of coconut milk, a squeeze of lime juice and a tsp fish sauce, stirred all together and simmered for about 30mins until thick and reduced. To finish it off all it needed was another little squeeze of lime juice and a sprinkling of fresh coriander.

The sea bass fillets were simply seasoned and seared quickly over a high heat, making them crisp but still full of flavour! Really lovely for dinner, and any fish fillet would have worked really well.

Earlier this week we had some meatballs with pasta which was perfectly nice, and I worked a late night so went dinner free….
