Weekly Meal Plan: How To Eat More Fish & Seafood
I’m so passionate about getting people to eat more fish and seafood on busy weeknights (it is much easier to do than you think!) I literally wrote the book on it (ad). So, as the weather is getting warmer so we’re more likely to want something light, bright and from the ocean for dinner, I thought for this weeks Weekly Meal Plan I’d gather together five seafood suppers that I think will make you really, really want to make fish for dinner next week!
Let us start the week with something light, bright, vibrant and super healthy. I find cod, if it is not breaded and fried or flaked into tacos needs something big and bold to stop it being a bit meh, and this recipe has it in spades with a chunky, spicy salsa and pomegranate and spring onion studded from-scratch cauliflower rice.
Tuesday: Prawn & Chorizo Tagliatelle
Almost every single month without fail this simple ‘surf ‘n’ turf’ pasta dish is the most visited recipe on this site and it is easy to see why: tender prawns, smokey chorizo and fresh tomatoes are brought together into a luxurious sauce with a glug of white wine and a dash of cream. It’s fancy enough for date night but simple enough to be enjoyed every day!
Wednesday: Korean Sashimi Salad
Another thing I’m passionate about is sharing my love for Korean food and flavours, and while I will always love a good poke bowl, my first love will always be Hwe Dup Bap, this delicious tuna and salmon sashimi dish served with crunchy radish, cooling cucumber and a homemade Korean sweet chilli sauce that I literally find excuses to put on everything.
Okay so we’re nearing the end of the week so all I usually want to make by Thursday night is something super speedy. Mussels literally cook in minutes and here steamed with jarred sundried tomato pesto and generous handfuls of curly kale they’ll literally be ready by the time you’ve had the chance to slice some crusty bread to mop up all those delicious juices.
Friday: Sardine & Pea Shoot Bruschetta
You know me, my main criteria for a Friday dish is something that can be served with a nice cold glass of rose wine and some crusty bread, and this simple Sardine & Pea Shoot Bruschetta ticks both boxes in spades. Be sure to buy good, bright red tomatoes from the Isle of Wight or Italian winter tomato varieties this time of year for that proper tomato flavour.
A few ideas for the weekend: things are starting to get a little sunnier which has put me in the mind for some cocktails, so why not try mixing up my Classic Paloma Cocktail, Cucumber & Jalapeno Margaritas, Grapefruit, Peppercorn and Basil Gin & Tonics, Classic French 75, Frozen Mango Margaritas, Wine Glass Moscow Mules, or my Orange & Campari Garibaldi?
