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.

FISH WITH MUSTARD SAUCE

There are not many fish recipes in Mum’s collection. Dad was a keen fisherman and we had fish probably once a week. Mum simply made a batter and fried the fish – that was the way Dad liked it. I’m not sure this recipe would have been Dad’s favourite, but he would have happily eaten it as he enjoyed all Mum’s cooking, including the ‘experiments’.
