I ATE ALL THE CAKE AND NOW I FEEL SICK / Fish Salad With Roasted Salsa

blogger-image-1306249444

After a very over indulgent weekend, its time to coax myself back on to the salad. Cakes, potatoes gratin, chilli cheese fries, steak, chocolate, sausage rolls … &tc. should be consumed every day without consequence, but I have not the motivation to exercise enough to justify eating it all day every day. HOWEVER I always forget that salad can be amazing if you just use some imagination. People put nuts on salad, fruit… I’m in the mood for fish tonight though so…

DINNER IS….

Salad
I used a Waitrose Mediterranean mixed salad that needed using up. Get some sort of mixed bag from some place, key words Mediterranean, red frilly lettuce, rocket, baby spinach. I also used Edamame beans, but only because the bad boys were reduced to 25p, for Godsake don’t spend £2 on them.

-Red and yellow pepper
-Whatever you please, you know what jazz you like
-Edamame beans

So much love for the reduced isle

Roasted Salsa (per 1 serving)
-2 tomatoes
-1 garlic
-Squeeze of lemon juice
-olive oil
-1/2 a chilli

I saw this recipe on the comment section of a food blog:
‘To make a mexican salsa, roast a big tomato and some chillis in a pan, when black toss them in to a blender, add a clove of garlic and a pinch of salt’
I’m very FOR vague cooking instructions because everyone’s tastes are different. So, I halved my tomatos, and put them in the pan with olive oil. Twat. I realised as soon as I put the heat on, above commenter meant put ingredients in pan dry, and uncut..because that’s how you roast in a pan. My salsa was pretty banging though so I’m not too bothered:

1. De-seed chilli, slice into large chunks, slice tomatos in half.
2. Put in pan with olive oil and roast until a bit burnt looking
3. Blend in a food processor or blender with the garlic and lemon juice

This smelt so good I wanted to put my face in it



Fish Fish FISH
W/e white fish. I picked sea bass but any white fish will do.

1. Rinse under cold water
2. Mix together juice of half a lime per fillet, and a tablespoon of olive oil
3. Dip mr fish in
4. Pour marinade on pan and grill mr fish for approx 3 mins on each side, or until golden brown

FINALLY – lay your salad ATTRACTIVELY on a plate, put mr fish on top, and then dress with the salsa. BOOM.
