But, in a shocking revalation, I can (geddit) reveal that we do actually eat fresh fish. Well it's not that fresh, given that it's smoked, but it is can-less. What I have here is Grimsby Smoked Cod. MSC certified cod no less and you can get it in Waitrose.
I do like a smoked fish. I've never been a kippers for breakfast type, but those vacuum packed smoked mackerel fillets are nectar. So that's all this is, just a reminder about smoked fish, because it's lovely.
Look at these delightful flakes of smoked cod:
A big piece of smoked cod can make two meals. The first poached in milk - put the fish in cold milk, bring to a nearly boil for 2 mins, then turn it off and leave for 5 or 6 minutes - and served with mash and frozen veg. Use the poaching milk to make a cheese sauce. For the next meal use your leftover mash and the rest of the fish to make fishcakes. As you can see from my recipe above, I like to oven cook my fishcakes, just one of those things I like to do.
So, eat more fish. Tinned, frozen, smoked or even, you know, just a fish.
