Three quick and easy fish recipes with The Saucy Fish Co. Perfect for a tasty mid-week meal!
If one of your New Year’s Resolutions is to eat a more varied diet and especially more fish and seafood then you’re going to love today’s post. I’ve teamed up with The Saucy Fish Co. to show you three really quick and easy recipes, made using some of their most popular ranges.
People often tell me that the reason why they don’t eat enough fish is because they don’t know how to prepare it and they’re intimidated by cooking it. The Saucy Fish Co. range makes it so easy to up your fish intake as all the fish and seafood comes fully prepared, with it’s own sauce and flavourings and clear cooking instructions.
I’ve decided to use these three delicious ranges:
- Salmon with Chilli, Lime & Ginger Dressing
- Haddock with Vintage Cheddar & Chive Sauce; and
- Tomato & Chorizo Foil Bake Bag
to make quick, easy and really tasty recipes that are perfect for a speedy mid-week meal for two.
1. Salmon & Veggie Traybake
A salmon and vegetable traybake is the easiest meal to whip up when you are in a rush. The Saucy Fish Co. makes it super simple by including a delicious Chilli, Lime & Ginger Dressing so you don’t even need to flavour the fish!
The salmon cooks on a tray in the oven alongside all the veggies. Cut up some baby potatoes into bite sized pieces and add other veggies like courgette, cherry tomatoes and some sliced red onion.
You can leave the veggies plain but I like to season with some sesame oil and a sprinkling of oregano.
After 20 minutes, remove from oven and pour on that delicious dressing. So tasty and so simple!
2. Haddock Pie
My second recipe is inspired by my love of fish pie. But whilst I love it, I rarely make it as it can be a bit time-consuming. Instead I decided to use the Haddock with Vintage Cheddar & Chive Sauce to create a super speedy cheat’s pie that again is perfect when you don’t have a lot of time during the week.
The haddock is cooked in it’s own bag in the oven for 15 minutes and I then used some ready-rolled puff pastry for the topping. I used some fun heart-shaped cookie cutters but any shape is absolutely fine. Brush that with a little egg wash and pop it onto another baking tray with a few cherry tomatoes and bake alongside the fish.
When that’s all ready, simply pop the fish and cheddar sauce into small bowls or ramekins and top with the pastry. So delicious but so simple!
3. Seafood Linguine
Seafood Linguine is a dish that I often order when I eat out, but rarely make myself at home. But the Foil Bake Bag (packed with prawns, squid, chorizo in a smoked paprika sauce) makes it really easy to whip up for lunch or dinner during the week.
The seafood is all cooked in the pre-prepared bag so all you need to do is lay it onto a baking tray, separate the seafood out into a single layer and bake for 11 minutes.
Whilst the seafood is cooking you just need to boil up some linguine on the hob. Once the seafood has cooked, remove from the oven, open the bag and mix with the pasta.
Super simple, minimal fuss but a really tasty lunch or dinner for 2 people!
