In line with my post about cutting down my cholesterol levels and not taking medication, I need to eat more fish. Whose got some nice tasty recipes  or suggestions to pass on. Unfortunately batter and rich sauces look to be out of the equation.
Karen's sent for a cholesterol diet book this morning, it will be interesting to see what recipes it contains and just how much I can change what I eat. We've already cut down on loads of stuff, I've certainly got an incentive,

Bodger,
I made this for our evening meal last night.
It was very tasty and quick and easy to make.
I just used Gluten free flour and Soya milk because my wife is Gluten and Dairy intolerant.

I love fish, and eat a lot of it, but mostly keep it simple when cooking.

One of my favourites:

Take any white fish - fillet or steak - bake in foil in a moderate oven until cooked through.
Remove from oven, smear the top with a little mayonnaise (and some chopped capers if you like them) then crumble some savoury crumbs on the top. Use whatever you like - breadcrumbs, crushed crisps - my favourite is some crumbled weetabix with some black pepper and seasalt. Pop under the grill till just browned.
Done!

Cod or haddock loin wrapped in smoked bacon, (or parma ham for a slightly healthier option,) roasted with cherry tomatoes.

Swordfish loin, marinated in rapeseed or ricebran oil, rubbed with a little lime and honey, seared in a hot griddle pan.

Whole seabass/seabream, stuffed with lemongrass and spring onion, baked in foil with a splash of dry cider.

Monkfish tail in curries/stirfries.

Oysters, sewn into pockets in fillet steak, seared and rested.

etc...

I don't like my fish messed about with, bit boring really.

Cod boiled or fried with a light coating of flour.

Haddock has to be smoked,

Plaice skinned and lightly fried whole or in filets depending on how lazy I am..

Pickled herrings...rolled mopps

Trout wrapped in aluminum foil baked with a little butter.

Eel baked or smoked.

Never buy from fishmongers catch my own or go down to the harbour and buy direct from the day fishing boats.

How about a nice fish pie?

I generally use cod, salmon, smoked haddock and prawns. Lightly poach the fish in milk and butter then use the poaching milk to make the white sauce with plenty of fresh parsley and dill. Topped with potato that has been riced and lots of butter and some milk/cream stirred in. I don't put hard boiled eggs in mine as I don't like the rubbery texture. Served with something green on the side. A comforting and warming meal at this time of year.

Try quail eggs, 30 secs in boiling water, peeled and placed in the sauce under the mash.
If you get it right, you'll get a perfect soft boiled egg!

I'm told that sales of quail eggs have risen noticably in store since I started selling fish.

Lots of fish this week - apart from the usual tinned sardines that are ideal for lunches we have had fresh trout baked on a bed of roasted veg, salmon with spaghetti and tonight we had creamy haddock with broccoli - a recipe from the Hairy Bikers book that we hadn't tried before but will definitely have again.

That's my normal Monday night meal at the local chippy while listening to a live band - anything from jazz to bluegrass. We know how to live here!
