Today dawned and I awoke to the cacophonous cackling of the Magpie’s on my roof top. It is a good thing the are not nocturnal, or no sleep at all would be had. Noisy little sod’s they are. Normally it would be the crows squawking or the sound of dogs barking somewhere far off in the distance, that disturb me from my sacred slumber. I lay there a while, eye’s closed waiting for my still unconscious brain, to awake and to collect my thoughts. I figured out that it was Friday and Friday means fish.
I had been delivered a very nice piece of choice Cod and some King prawns the day before. So after sparking up my park-ray and drinking my obligatory 2 cup’s of coffee and 1 cup of tea, I set about preparing my food for the day. It is so simple to prepare, quick with very little messing about or indeed mess ! First I poach the Cod in milk, prepare the salad and introduce the King prawns and Cod to it. Mixing and tossing the salad it soon begins to look appetizing and I can never resist the temptation to sample a morsel or 3.
I am sure my beautiful friend Kate could offer a few tips that would enhance this fishy dish.
You have here a good mixture of textures, as your teeth sink into the crunchy King prawns and the chunky flakes of Atlantic Cod seem to fall apart and melt on the tongue . Scrumdiddlyumtious. M.M.M. I imagine a glass of fine white wine would be the order of the day. But as I am a none drinker I enjoy a glass of Clementine juice instead. This combo works well for me. For desert a simple apple pie with custard, then soon my sofa begins to whisper my name.
Being a type 2 diabetic, I am perfectly aware that I should omit desert. But There are many things we should not do, but we do them anyway, more often as not to our determent.
Why not try this over the weekend, it will make a difference from your usual meat and 2 veg.
