Due to my not eating chicken (and the girls copying me) I’ve been forced to look for other replacement chicken dishes and I’m falling back on fish quite often. I found a lovely poached fish recipe:
Trim and slice 4 spring onions, put in a pan with 1tbsp olive oil. Trim 300g asparagus (or do as I do and totally forget about weighing stuff and just stick the whole packet in), 1tsp plain flour (as we are gluten free I used rice flour) and 300ml milk (I used unsweetened coconut milk but I’m sure any unsweetened milk would be fine) Add 200g spinach, s&p and simmer.
If you can eat spuds I’d get them on at this point however I boiled up some basmati rice.
Then pop your fish in a medium pan (I used my frying pan) cover with water and simmer for 6 minutes. (Well that’s what the recipe said but I forgot to check the time so I just made sure they were cooked through!)
This was one the kids all loved! They all (except Oona) rejected the asparagus…but the next time I make it they might eat it, you never know!
PS I would credit whoever it was I got the recipe from but I can’t remember what book it was…plus I changed it anyway so perhaps they won’t want to be credited with my cooking! ha ha
