Who doesn’t love fish and chips? That classic British seaside dish, everyone has their favourite sauce or side to go with it; curry sauce, mushy peas, simple salt and vinegar or a good spoonful of tartare sauce. I’m a mushy peas and tartare sauce person I have to admit. When I started thinking about this recipe I wanted to make sure I kept the elements I love about those two sides but add in some influences from somewhere else. For my Moroccan Style Fish and Chips I’m using Young’s Chip Shop Cod Fillets, did you know they are the Nation’s favourite? This recipe is perfect for adding a bit of spice to a classic dish and it’s so easy to cook.
When I’m thinking of ways to treat myself in the middle of the week I like to try and make my life as easy as possible. I prefer to make things where everything is cooked together, or use the same tools. For example I would always try to steam any vegetables over potatoes or pasta that I’m cooking, or if I’m roasting something I try to put everything in the oven. That’s what this meal is all about; grabbing a few bits and bobs from around the kitchen and lifting a meal into something delicious. So, instead of going for a standard fillet of fish, I tried the Lemon and Cracked Black Pepper Lightly Dusted Cod from the Birds Eye ‘Inspirations’ range and works so well with sticky balsamic roasted veggies.
