Grilled salmon with pesto
This is a delicious way to serve salmon and my girls love it! It is so simple…all you need to do is spread approximately 1 teaspoon of basil pesto onto a salmon fillet and top with a little finely grated Parmesan cheese.
Then bake at 200 oC for 8-10 minutes. That’s it!
It is delicious served with boiled new potatoes and a crisp green salad or veggies of your choice.
3-4 whole smoked mackerel
4 Tbsp crème fraiche or low fat cream cheese
Juice of 1 lemon
1 tsp Dijon mustard
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Fresh flat-leaf parsley – small handful
- Remove the skin from the mackerel
- Add the mackerel, crème fraiche, lemon juice and Dijon mustard to a food blender and blend until smooth
- Then add the ground black pepper to taste and the finely chopped parsley
- Serve on toasted wholemeal bread of your choice or on crackers

Very easy Fish Pie…
I have noticed you can buy a ‘fish pie mix’ now in the supermarket, which includes salmon, pollock (or other white fish) and haddock.
- Make your mashed potatoes first.
- Then make a white sauce with milk and flour; set this aside.
- Next add the fish (raw) to an oven-proof dish, pour over the white sauce and add some grated carrots and peas to add colour and vegetables to the mix.
- Top with your mash, bake in the oven for approx. 30 mins and voila, you have an easy fish pie!
- You can add some grated Parmesan cheese to top the mash for a ‘posh’ version!
