Flexible Family Fish Meal for Children & Adults
FLOUNDER TWO WAYS (ADULT / CHILDREN)
4 filets of flounder
Flour, beaten egg, breadcrumbs in three separate bowls
Fresh jalepeno pepper or dried chili flakes
Half a lime squeezed
Half a glass of white wine (from the bottle you have already opened while cooking!)
Fresh coriander to garnish
Children - Breaded Flounder
Cut the fish into stick size peices.
Dip into the flour and coat lightly, then dip into the egg mix and coat lightly, finally dip into the breadcrumbs and coat lightly
(I make my own breadcrumgs by whizzing up a few bread ends I have left over in the mixer with some fresh parsly and salt and pepper).
Fry the breaded fish in a little olive oil just until the fish is white through and flakey. Be careful not to overcook.
This will give your children a good, healthy introduction to fresh fish, served in a "child friendly" maner. Serve with broccoli and my cheats sautee potato (see below).
Adult - Chili and Lime Flounder
Lightly coat the fish in a little flour (stops in from falling apart)
Heat a little olive oil in a pan over a moderate/strong heat
Add a quarter of a fresh jalapeno chopped roughly seed and all (remove seeds if you want it mild)
Add half and inch of fresh grated ginger, half the juice of a lime and half a glass of white wine.
Add the fish and cook until it is just white through (turning once)
Garnish with fresh coriander and a fresh slice of lime
CAITLIN'S CHEATS SUPER QUICK SAUTE POTATO
For four people - Put two large potatoes in the microwave (leave skin on) for about 8 minutes until soft but still firm enough to slice
Slice into thick slices (leave skin on)
Warm about 1/4 inch of vegetable oil in a frying pan until bubbles start rising to the surface (that means it's hot)
Fry patoto slices on each side for a least 5 minutes, until golden brown
Remove an dput on kitchen paper to remove any excess oit and salt generously before serving
These can be prepared bofore the fish and kept warm in the oven until the fish is ready
