Fish on Friday with Posh Salmon Fish Fingers & Chips
What a week it has been, I have had a sick chicken to deal with, Deirdre one of my Coronation chickens is not well; and despite all sorts of molly coddling and special remedies I am still worried about her. The weather has been minus zero most mornings and yet it has soared up to a balmy fifteen degrees during the day, so wood burning fires that were lit early morning became totally tropical by Midday and clothing has been abandoned, adorning armchairs and tables – NOT right down to our undergarments of course ……we do observe a certain amount of decorum in our household. Pancake day arrived and pancakes were flipped and devoured with gusto; I was particularly pleased with my Luxury Seafood Pancakes au Gratin and my Quire of Paper Pancakes served with the traditional lemon and sugar were delicious too……..whilst my Banoffee Banana and Buttermilk Pancakes made a wonderful pudding one evening. Yes, we embraced pancakes with fervour this year, and I am quite sad that the excuse for eating them daily has passed…..
We all love fish and seafood, and Friday is the traditional day in our family to treat ourselves to something fishy and lovely. Salmon is a favourite with all of us. I DO love it simply pan-fried or roasted with Asian spices and honey……it also makes a great luxury addition to fish pies, pancakes and stir-fries too; but now and then the urge to have fish fingers takes over and so I decided to make posh fish fingers with my fresh salmon this week, and furthermore, I served them with home-made chips, especially as it IS National Chip week and is allowed, great excuse eh! These salmon fish fingers are easy to make and make a lovely change from the usual commercial kind made with cod, hake, haddock or whiting. As well as the naughty chips, all that was needed to complete this meal was some fresh lettuce leaves, fresh lemon and a dollop of home-made mayonnaise.
To keep you all amused whilst I whip up a batch for this crispy crumbed salmon fish fingers, here are a few fishy facts about SALMON:
That’s is for today, enjoy your Friday, it’s very nearly the weekend. I’ll see you tomorrow with Herbs on Saturday, the last day for adding your recipes to the herbs blog hop for February…….Karen.
