The best recipes this week were the fish pie I made on Thursday and a pudding that I and my brilliant cousin made together on Saturday night.
Sadly there are no photos of the pudding, but take my word that it was delicious and she did an amazing job of the presentation!
-400g fish pie mix (ours had cod, haddock, smoked mackerel and smoked salmon, shellfish are also good)
-2 filets fresh salmon
-2 filets fresh pollock or basa
-5 spring onions
-1 red onion
-50ml olive oil
-herbes de provence
-chopping board, peeler and knife
1: Cube all the fish so it’s the same size. Place in the tray. Season with salt and pepper and rest.
2: Peel any uneven, dirty or thick skin off the potatoes. Cube and place in the pot to boil.
3: Finely dice the spring onions and red onion. Add to the fish.
4: Once tender, drain the potatoes and mash with 50g of butter and the oil.
5: Dust the fish with herbs and add the butter before spooning the potatoes on top.
6: Bake at 160C for 2h.
Chocolate Cheese Pudding.
-300-400g cream cheese
-300g greek yoghurt
-5tbsp cocoa powder
-3tbsp plain sugar
-3tbsp icing sugar
-1tsp orange flavouring
-crushed chocolate for decoration (optional)
1: Mash together the cheese, yoghurt and cocoa powder.
2: Blend whilst adding the sugars and honey.
3: Continue to blend. Make sure to slowly raise and lower the blender if it is hand-held, to get some air in.
4: Adjust by adding either more cocoa or more sugar, as you see fit.
5: Fold in the orange.
6: Quickly serve whilst still light. Sprinkle crushed chocolate, toblerone, terry’s chocolate orange or similar on top for decoration.
And those were the best main course and pudding we had this week.
TTFN and Happy Hunting!
