Fish fusion

So I have started buying more white fleshed fish to eat for dinner. For 2 reasons really, firstly its just so quick and easy and the other is I didn’t realise how high in protein fish white flesh fish actually is.

I had a hankering for those crisp, fresh flavours of a Thai salad. Google and Taste kindly supplied me with this recipe which I adapted.


Sesame fish

  • white fillet of fish
  • light dusting of flour
  • almond meal
  • sesame seeds
  • 1 egg
  • splash of milk
  1. Lightly dust fish with flour, dip in egg and milk mixture.
  2. Combine almond meal and sesame seeds in a bowl, coat fish in mixture pressing it onto the fish.
  3. Cook fish in pan with a little olive oil, browning fish on each side.

Thai salad

  • 1/2 loosely packed cup Thai basil leaves, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 loosely packed cup Vietnamese mint, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 loosely packed coriander leaves, roughly chopped
  • mixed salad leaves
  • fried shallots (alternatively finely chopped red onion rings)
  • soy
  • 1 chilli, seeded, finely chopped
  • few drops of sesame oil
  • juice of half a juicy lime
  1. Combine all leaves in a bowl. When ready to serve top with shallots and dressing.
