Recently I've been making my big weekend meals on a Saturday...I am not sure why, it just seems to have slotted into our routine better than Sundays. The past couple of Sundays have been spent walking and exploring...leaving less time to prepare a traditional Sunday meal.
Yesterday, after our adventures, I popped some baking potatoes in the oven as soon as we walked in the door and left them to do their thing while we enjoyed a cup of tea and a movie. To go with the-best-baked-potatoes-I-have-ever-made I topped some pollock fillets with a mixture of fresh breadcrumbs, a bit of oil and chopped herbs and green chilli...popped them under a medium grill for about 10 mins until cooked through and crispy...and mixed up a quick avocado and cherry tomato salad.
Not to toot my own horn...but I was really pleased by how well this turned out. Not only were the baked potatoes absolutely perfect...but the fish was a big surprise. The original recipe called for fresh mackerel fillets, which were WAY out of my price range this week...so I opted for the 'basics' pack of fresh pollock fillets...you know...odd shapes, mixed sizes etc. 1/3 of the price and actually really good. I was worried it was going to be rubbery, I was worried it was going to be too fishy..but I needn't have worried.
