With the party season in full swing, Sally Bee has some fantastic foodie alternatives to fix a hangover.
Sally says: Yippee – Healthy fish, chips and mushy peas! What more can I say! Apart from the fact that potatoes cooked in this way are full of nutrients and peas are a wonderful source of vitamin C, protein, fibre and foliate.
450g/1 lb Rooster potatoes, washed with the skin on and cut into slim wedges
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 x 7oz thick cod or haddock fillets
Freshly ground black pepper
2-3 sprigs lemon thyme
12 oz frozen peas
2 tablespoons half fat crème fraiche
2 tablespoons chopped mint
Lemon wedges to serve
Preheat oven to 180°C Gas Mk 6
Put the prepared potato wedges into a large bowl and add 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Mix up well so that all the potatoes are glistening in the oil.
If you have one, put a wire rack over a roasting tin and arrange the potato wedges on top
Pop into the preheated oven and cook for 30 – 35 minutes
Meanwhile season the fish fillets with the lemon thyme and black pepper
In a large frying pan, heat the remaining oil over a medium heat and cook the cod, skin side down for 2-3 minutes until the skin is crisp
Transfer to a baking tray and cook in the oven for 15-20 minutes until the fish is tender and flaking
Cook the peas in boiling water for 8-10 minutes until very tender. Drain well and return to the pan then add the crème fraiche and the mint and mash with a potato masher or puree with a stick blender until you get your desired consistency.
Season the wedges and fish with Black Pepper and a squeeze of lemon and serve on top of the mushy peas.
