I found some Smoked haddock in the supermarket for half price today!
I quickly grabbed as it look super fresh and you should never pass up a food bargain deal.
By the way, what kind of smoked fish do you have where you live?
When I got home, though, I realised my pantry was nearly bare and I didn't have a lot I could work on this fish with.
Now most Brits will boil smoked fish in milk, fry it or make fish pie sauce with it. The most adventurous will throw it in a soup. Oh and there's also Kedgeree.
I didn't fancy any of those options.
Upon re-exploring my pantry, I found some farmer's market garlic, onions and potatoes. This combo reminded me of a traditional Portuguese dish that involves salted cod, onions, garlic and potatoes, fried or oven cooked. Its amazing, as you can see:
Any normal fish wouldn't be able to hold its flavour against such competitors as garlics and onion, Salted cod however can, as it has a unique flavour.
And so does smoked fish-hey presto a quick and delicious dinner recipe for under £5 or $7.
My son loved it, it was a great way of getting him to eat some fish!
A key ingredient here is also a good quality extra olive oil for added flavour as well as the lemon juice at the end!
2 tsps Extra Virgin Olive oil
2 fillets of smoked haddock (or any smoked fish)
2 large potatoes very thinly sliced
3 large cloves or garlic, crushed
1 large onion sliced
1 cup of frozen peas
juice of half a lemon
Lemon wedges for garnish
Cook Potatoes in the oil until translucent
Add Onions and Garlic
Cook for another 10 minutes
Add Fish (chopped) and peas and cook throughout
Serve with lemon wedges
Super quick and very yummy!
