Tasty Tuesday Brings Out The Big Guns….

Good morning world and thanks for tuning in to another Tasty Tuesday here in Planet Magnet. Today I have decided to share a recipe that I followed from one of the big guns of cooking…. Jamie Oliver.

Yes, I have followed the old Essex boy’s recipe for a healthy main course dishΒ so here’s hoping you too can follow it but then as I have said many times before, if I can do it then I am absolutely certain that you can as well….

So then, what is it we have for you today then?

How does Fish Pie sound?

Good eh?

But it’s more than just a simple fish pie, it is a super healthy version of the pie made with some veggies instead of the which sauce… Different eh?

Yep, different, but GOOD different.

So here’s how you do it.

Ingredients:

  1. Olive Oil.
  2. Smoked Haddock.
  3. Cod Fillet.
  4. Salmon Fillet.
  5. Kind Prawns.
  6. Scallops.
  7. 1 Large Carrot – grated.
  8. 2 Large Celery Sticks – grated.
  9. 150gms Mature Cheddar Cheese – grated.
  10. 1 Small Chilli – finely chopped.
  11. Himalayan Pink Salt.
  12. Course Ground Cracked Black Pepper.
  13. 1kg Potatoes.
  14. 1 Large Lemon.
  15. Fresh Flay Leaf Parsley – finely chopped.
  16. 1 Handful Spinach – finely chopped.

Firstly take a pan of water place on the stove and bring to the boil for the potatoes. Whilst these boil, take the Carrot and peel and chop in half.

Eh, Voila!!

Once again the Worlds Biggest Fridge Magnet proves that cooking need not be difficult as he follows a specific recipe and create a dish fit for a king ( and even one who is on a diet!)

So everybody, if I can do this then so can you! There is no need to be eating processed foods and no need to be making do. Yes it may be a little more expensive than normal but I can guarantee that it will serve many meals and that always works out less expensive in the long run!!

‘Till tomorrow,

Stay out of the fridge.

    Cameron, this sounds great. I love fish, and am always keen to learn new ways of enjoying it. Generally, if we get fresh fish it is a matter of a sear on each side on the grill….so this is a lovely change. Also, the healthy vegetable option as a side, is perfect, thank you πŸ™‚

    Wonderful recipe, especially for busy people… Do ahead, one dish, plenty of leftovers. I could even see making individual servings, baking, then freezing to pull out as needed. I especially love your message of giving up the processed foods!!!

    Fish and seafood is plentiful and absolutely delicious here so this is definitely on the list. NO cheese though as Two Brains is pathalogically against cooked cheese. It’s a great lighter take on Fish pie and if you used cauliflower mash it would be even lighter. I’m in!
