LEMON BUTTER FISH

It’s a bit strange to see this 70s recipe using tinned carrots and tinned stir fry vegetables.  The article says ‘hearty meals – don’t have to mean hours of work”, but  I think using apacket of prepared fresh vegetables, that are available now in the supermarket, would be a lot tastier and just as easy.

OCTOPUS IN RED WINE

Unless you’ve already bought 2kg of baby octopus it’s too late to make this recipe for Easter, but don’t worry it’d be good at any time of the year.  It comes from a Women’s Weekly ‘Let’s Go Greek!’ supplement, I like it because it gives clear instructions on how to prepare the baby octopus.

SALMON LASAGNE

The beauty of all the different varieties of lasagne is that they can be prepared in advance and cooked when needed.  This is the first time though I’ve seen a salmon version.  I have a recipe for another seafood one which I make using marinara mix I buy from the supermarket and that tastes pretty good, so this one could be worth trying.

DILL SALMON LOAF with Piquant Yoghurt Sauce

With Christmas on the horizon I’m starting to look for recipes that will work on the big day. I think this salmon loaf would make a great starter.  You could make it the day before and serve it cold with the yoghurt sauce and a light salad.

PRAWN OMELET

Was travelling through country NSW recently and after a long day of driving we decided to have a quick meal at a Chinese restaurant before an early night – big mistake. I wasn’t all that hungry and thought a prawn omelet would be ideal.  Not so, it was dreadful, unrecognizable frozen seafood and a heavy pancake thick ‘egg’ batter, really awful.  Nothing at all like this recipe which is full of fresh vegetables, prawns and 8 eggs – and I’m sure no dose of indigestion as I had after my Tamworth one.

TUNA MORNAY

Seafood at Christmas and Easter has always been expensive not that it’s something Mum would have bought then or any other time.  Dad was a very enthusiastic fisherman so we mainly had fish that he’s caught or tinned fish. Tuna Mornay was a family favourite, completely out of fashion these days of course, but still a tasty meal – if you like tinned tuna or salmon that is.
