We Eat Things Fish Skewers


A couple of weeks ago I made these fish skewers. If you like the look of them, here’s how to do them yourself:

Take a selection of your favourite fish and/or seafood. I used prawns, salmon and halibut. Cut the fish into cubes.

Make the marinade: this is just a glug of olive oil, some chopped parsely, the rind of half a lemon and as much crushed garlic as you like. Season to taste.

Marinate the fish for no more than 20 mins (any more than this, and the lemon juice from the rind may start to cook the fish).

Put your fish on skewers and grill for a couple of minutes on each side.

These are so easy to create, and really tasty. I served them with grilled asparagus & vine tomatoes and some roasted new potatoes. A little hollandaise and lardons on the potatoes is another great addition to the dish.

Review: Sainsbury’s Bake In the Bag King Prawns With A Red Thai Sauce


Bake in the bag meals are hit and miss. Sometimes they’re great and sometimes they’re soggy mush. It really depends on the brand and your personal taste.

Sainsbury’s do their own range of bake in the bag fish – offering cod, haddock and prawns (that I know of). These prawns cost £3.25 for 280g (two bags/portions).

The calories in the King Prawns & Red Thai Sauce are 197 for one 140g portion. That’s not bad, especially considering the amount of delicious sauce and that you get about ten large prawns each.

I cooked the prawns in the oven for around 15/20 minutes, but you can also cook them in a microwave for less time.

They were great with some plain, seasoned white rice (I added peas) and there was enough sauce to make the whole dish spicy and delicious!

A great, easy (and fairly cheap) low-calorie meal!
