I’ve been on a search for different, yet easy, fish recipes lately and trying to get my hands on as many as I can.
Of course, tuna and the humble blikkievis is first on my list, but I need variety.
I’ve been on the fishy mission for three reasons, firstly, for personal health reasons, secondly, a colleague and I plan on going pescatarian for a month, which basically means cutting out all meat except fish.
And the third reason is probably the most obvious one - we’re heading into pickled fish season, better known as Easter of course.
In just over a month, we’ll be celebrating Easter and of course, in the weeks running up to that long weekend, we can expect the price of fish to increase considerably.
I’ve been trying to incorporate more fish into my diet because, as we all know, it is a much healthier option than say, red meat, although it may not always be the cheapest.
While many people may not eat fish - they could be allergic or simply don’t like the taste of it - for those of us who do, I’m sure would agree that it really is one of the most versatile and lekker dishes to cook and chow.
Think easy fish and chips - met baie sout en asyn - on a Friday night or a lekker viskerrie for supper on a weeknight.
Kids love fish fingers and when was the last time you had lekker vis frikadelle?
With the change of season a cooler months ahead, a warm fish dish may be just what the family needs to keep warm from the inside.
