Whats for Dinner Tonight?

(Jane Jones) #81

Friday fish tonight…a loin of haddock that I cool smoked on the barbecue, and will turn into a fish pie with some unsmoked haddock and prawns. Can’t stand the bright orange smoked haddock that we get in our local fishmonger.

Sounds very good Jane, I can’t stand the price of the ‘finny haddy’ in the shops, used to be cheap fish :neutral_face:

(Jane Jones) #83

It was on promo 9.90/kg!

(Bill Morgan) #84

That was good!, normally 16-20 here :neutral_face:

We get amazing fish from our AMAP - 10€ a kilo for a 3 kilo box once a month. It’s a lucky dip - you get 1kg of ‘noble’ and 2 kg of ‘ignoble’ (?!) but before now we have had 3 kilos of Dover sole and huge Bonites. It’s super fresh and caught by a local fisherman. It’s also made me a much more adventurous fish cook! When I get the next huge Sea Bream out I will post a photo!

What’s an AMAP?

Sorry Jane - here you are! http://www.reseau-amap.org/

Ah ha! The proper name for paniers…thanks for the link. Sadly round our way it is generally meat (which we don’t eat), vegetables (which we grow ourselves), and cheese/eggs which we can get direct. I would commit a major crime for a panier of fish!

(Catharine Higginson) #89

With ours - you take out a veggie box contract and can then add everything else - pork, chicken , eggs, bread, olive oil, honey, flour , colza, apples, cider vinegar, compote, meat (!), cheese, and best of all, proper British sausages made my by my friend and local free range pork producer Andy!

Bacon, egg, saus’ and chips tonight, plus madam making oatmeal flapjacks for brekkie :yum:

(Véronique Langlands) #92

What are these oatmeal flapjacks, please? (I am assuming perhaps wrongly that they are not the sort you make with oats brown sugar golden syrup and butter) I was very surprised to discover that oatcakes weren’t at all the same thing chez moi in Scotland and in say, Staffordshire or Cheshire.

(Bill Morgan) #93

Porridge oats, butter, brown sugar, vanilla, plain flour and milk.
Oatcakes are totally different, for me :slightly_smiling_face:

(Véronique Langlands) #94

And what do you do next? Bake or fry or what? Yes great surprise, for me an oatcake was a small hard thin disc of deliciousness and then the English ones were like crèpes, sort of.

(Bill Morgan) #95

Bake, just coming out now :yum:

Oatcakes with cheese, or butter and jam :yum:2

(Véronique Langlands) #96

Sounds wonderful! Recipe, please! :grinning:

@harry I was given an almost identical recipe by a friend of mine in Cheshire, but thak you for the link, I am sure people will find it useful.
