My weekly meal plan consists of 1-pot curries. Curry chicken, curry tofu, curry chickpeas, anything that I can put in a curry and anything that I can cook in 1 pot. Some days I can see the look in my family’s faces ‘not curry A G A I N’. Well, my husband and three-year old have the ‘look’. My 19-month old just throws everything on to the floor.
Place in a baking tray. Drizzle with olive oil and bake for 20-25 minutes at 180C.
The fish500-550g of salmon fillets, sliced
2 eggs beaten
½ cup of wholemeal plain flour
2 cups of breadcrumbs (and cereal crumbs – will explain more below)
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
½ tsp ground turmeric
½ tsp garam masala
Oil for frying
Mix the spices (cumin, coriander, turmeric and garam masala) with the flour (or the breadcrumbs).
I also mixed in some random Weetabix crumbs (the kind you find at the bottom of the bag when the rest of the big pieces have been eaten) into the breadcrumb mix. This gave the breadcrumb coating a nice crunch with a hint of sweetness. (I had to pick out the raisins too – our Weetabix had raisins).Dip each slich of salmon firstly into the flour mixture, then into the egg and lastly coat in breadcrumbs.
Shallow fry the breadcrumb-coated fish.
Serve with salad or a side of vegetables. We had peas.
The recipe above produced enough for 2 meals. My kind of recipe = less cooking during the week.I’ll have to try baking these the next time for an even healthier meal.
